Fireworks Burst Over Magic Kingdom for the First Time in Months, Part of Limited After-Hours Test

    Last night, a limited test meant that fireworks were once again in the skies over Magic Kingdom after a months-long absence due to COVID-19.

    As noted, the test was limited in scope, with extended quiet periods between launches. It was not a “show” by any stretch of the imagination, but a few guests were able to enjoy some late-night fireworks as Disney worked for about 45 minutes starting just before 11pm. Here are a couple of photos of the test that consisted of fewer than 60 shells in total. Photos courtesy of Jonathan Salazar.

    Back in August, we brought you the news of a permit filed for something called “Project Nugget”. At this time, it’s unclear what Project Nugget is, or what relation, if any, the fireworks test last night might have had with the codename. Officially, Disney called last nights activity “routine fireworks testing”.
