Hmm. It turns out there is no area on the forums for discussion of Disney parks that are neither WDW nor Disneyland, so I’m placing this under WDW for now.
But apparently Shanghai Disneyland is trialing the re-opening of fireworks.
I believe the amount of space they have to accommodate crowds is significantly more than WDW, which is why they can pull it off. And I can see how fireworks in Shanghai might draw in some crowds, justifying the cost.
WDW? I think they might be able to re-introduce fireworks IF they limited it by NOT offering them during normal park hours, and only offering them as a paid event (basically a dessert party or After Hours/Christmas party type event specifically with severely limited numbers). The question is if they could bring in enough revenue from party guests to pay for the fireworks? I’d think there might also be residuals in that even those not willing to pay for a special event might be more willing to return and book something OUTSIDE the park (such as at Poly or Contemporary, etc) to watch the fireworks from afar.
What do you all think? You think Shanghai’s opening portends a possibly chance to open fireworks back up in some modified form at WDW?
