Disney Parades and Fireworks
Your vacation wouldn't be complete without seeing the Disney parades and fireworks. They are a wonderful part of your Orlando Walt Disney World vacation. After all, seeing your favorite Disney toys and characters come to life is exciting!
So, exactly what Disney parades are fireworks shows can you see? And more importantly, what are the Disney parade and firework times?
Walt Disney World has parades and/or fireworks at the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios (MGM). Let's take a look at what each offers, because they are all very much different.
Magic Kingdom Parades and Fireworks
Walt Disney World's Magic Kindom has the following for parades and fireworks:
IllumiNations is the name of the EPCOT fireworks show. And really, it's more than just fireworks! IllumiNations is also a laser-light and "regular" light show, featuring all the nations in the continents section of the themepark. Held in the lagoon area, IllumiNations has over 1,000 fireworks bursts!
IllumiNations is set to music, and what a show it is. If you're at EPCOT, please stay until 9:00 PM because each and every night you can see the IllumiNations fireworks and light show!
Animal Kingdom Parade
Disney's Animal Kingdom parade is called Mickey's Jammin' Jungle parade. You can see your favorite Disney characters play and dance throughout the streets of Africa, Discovery Island and Asia (hmmm, sounds like a long parade to me).
Disney Hollywood Studios (MGM) Parade and Fireworks
There is one parade and one fireworks show at Disney Hollywood Studios, and they are:
Disney Parade and Fireworks Times

(I didn't include EPCOT, since it keeps the same time year around -- 9:00 PM for IllumiNations)
Keep in mind that if you are staying at one of the Walt Disney World resorts, you are eligible for the Extra Magc Hours program, at no additional cost.
The Extra Magic Hours lets you have an extra hour in the park either before or after normal hours!
Have a Great Disney Vacation!
About the Magic Kingdom Parades and Fireworks
In general, the Share a Dream Come True parade happens every day. However, Disney Wishes and Spectromagic depend on the Magic Kingdom park hours that day.
If there is a special event in the evening and the park closes early, neither Disney Wishes or Spectromagic will take place.
