Visiting Disney World and Disneyland is about to get more lit.
After putting fireworks on hold amid the COVID pandemic, Disney has announced the nightly shows will be returning to their North American theme parks this summer.
"A Disney tradition since 1957, fireworks shows are what Walt Disney called the perfect “kiss goodnight” at the close of a magical day, and this summer the skies above Disney theme parks will sparkle with color once more," read a notice on the Disney Parks website. "Beginning in July, just in time for the nation’s Independence Day celebrations, our incredibly popular nighttime fireworks spectaculars are returning to Disney parks!"
Disney parks have been relaxing restrictions and health protocols in recent weeks and this is their latest in a return to normalcy at the theme parks.
Last week, Disney World announced that as of June 15th it is no longer requiring vaccinated guests to wear a mask while indoors. Face coverings will still be required on Disney transportation, including buses, monorails and the Disney Skyliner aerial gondolas.
No proof of vaccination will be required, as the park will have to solely rely on the honor system when asking guests if they have received the coronavirus vaccine.
Guests that aren't vaccinated are expected "to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, and upon entering and throughout all attractions and transportation," reads a notice on the Disney website.
