Magic Kingdom firework testing scheduled but not a sign of imminent return of shows

Sure isn’t much social distancing going on walking around the parks and the Springs currently, but I get it the thinking is there is difference between guests walking by each other in close proximity vs standing next to each other for a long period of time.
I think you nailed it right there. CDC says high-risk exposure is 15 minutes within 6-feet. That doesn't happen for cavalcades, but would for fireworks.

Looks like the happy face from Holiday Wishes... actually several shells looked like Wishes / holiday wishes.
Definitely a smiley pattern shell, however, it looked customized to only have a single and centered eye. At least from the videos I've seen so far. I could be overthinking/analyzing, but just my initial observation.

Best with sound off and 4K.

They do seem a bit Christmasy.

Smile!

cut the firework show down to less than 10 minutes
That would be FITS, Problem is people find their spot and stay there for a half hour? Hour? 2 Hours?

Unless MK can pull off FITS unannounced?? Like the Cavalcades? Granted That's Prob never been done before in a Disney Park: A fireworks show with no known time or warning.

That might work... the 90's FITS were just 5 mins I think. 2000's FITS went up to 7mins.

I forgot to add that with the Wishes style and HEA's Lights in FITS That wouldn't be a horrid choice right now, until the doctors greenlight HEA or a 50th Show(whichever comes first)

True, with a 5 min Warning at least or not even that?
I’m trying to remember. I think they did the 5 minute, but was a few years ago.

I feel like I’ve been at Disneyland when they started fireworks about 5 minutes early as well... to get the show in when the wind was favorable. I know I’ve been at Disneyland when it was delayed! But who hasn’t. Ha.

Surprise fireworks are not a good thing for guests with sensitivity issues to loud noises. And 5 minutes is not enough of a warning since it can take that long to just get out of the park, or ruin a person's place in an exposed queue.

It's like the Epcot test, but I'll take it!!!


Multiple perimeter tests, Could HEA or the new 50th Show (if we get one) use the launch sites that were planned for HEA before the Fire Ban and HEA in 2017?
This is my guess as well.

Fireworks have been known to trigger people who have seen battlefields, especially with how loud the ones at MK really can be, though this is a rare thing of course.
