Fireworks and the last show are the best part of Disney land trip and it is always impressive. It is often heavily crowded and well controlled in terms of grouping , barriers, and traffic and most of the people get ready and reserve good standing spots very early.

We came the night after we'd watched World of Color at DCA. In truth we thought World of Color was more impressive but the fireworks are still an essential part of the experience.

Whilst World of Color is hands down the best fountain display I've ever seen, the fireworks here are far from the best fireworks display I've seen. Its fine, but if you are expecting a total once-in-a-lifetime fireworks extravaganza then I don't think it is that. To be fair they have to do it night after night so perhaps you can't expect the same level of bang as you get in shows where they do it once a year on special occasions.

The classic view of the fireworks is of course with the castle behind. But I had read that you need to invest some serious time into getting a clear castle view in terms of turning up early. So instead we headed to Small World in time for their 9pm Encanto projection show and then just stayed there until the 9.30pm fireworks display. We were front row so it was a good spot.

Whilst you don't see the castle you do get the accompanying projections show on Small World which, as a long building, probably shows the projections better than any other location.

Fireworks go up to the left of Small World as you are looking at it, so the further you are to the right of Small World the more the fireworks will centre over it, but still make sure you have as clear a view of the full face of Small World as possible.

A handful of fireworks went off behind us when watching from this location, but really not many and not the main parts of the display either.

When I travel to Disneyland, I am cruising in an electric wheelchair. It's often difficult for me to see parades or shows and almost impossible for me to wait long periods of time to see a show. I found The Disney Tomorrow Land Terrace Fireworks Special! This was perfect for me. I reserved on line and showed up to check in at the restaurant. The staff was unbelievably kind to me and helpful. The food was delicious-Moroccan Chicken, turmeric rice, greens and a coconut refreshing drink with a glow cube. Later I went up to the actual terrace where I had a reserved seat. They took me each time which was really nice and you could come and go from 6:30 pm to 10. Fireworks are about 9:30. They gave me a darth vader sipper, a cool star wars dessert, and endless coffee (or whatever you wanted). The view, being able to relax and be cared for-I forgot about life for a while and just enjoyed. Jocelyn and Madison were cast members who simply excelled and really all of the crew was exceptionally good. I can't wait to do it again!

The night time fireworks are always a highlight of the day. However, we were there on a Thursday night and found the show disappointing. The fireworks seemed lacking in variety and was very ordinary with little colour.
On the Friday night, we were in California Adventure and caught parts of the fireworks on the way out. Even with restricted view, it seemed like a much better show, more colourful and more impressive variety/variations. It seems a bit of a cheat to have different firework shows on different days- cost saving excuses again? What kind of experience are Disney giving to guests that don’t go on weekends? We were also told that there were no fireworks every day, so when there was a show scheduled for our day, we were happy, but didn’t realise that there was a difference. Disappointed with Disney

Very crowded and hectic. Rides repeatedly broke down and trash seemed to be everywhere. This is not the Disneyland I grew up with.

New fireworks show celebrating the 100th anniversary of Disney should not be missed. We stayed for the fireworks on a Friday night and thought Main Street would be packed but it wasn't. The crowds were definitely tolerable. As the projections are on the buildings along Main Street, you don't have to stake out a place in front of the castle. We actually found our spot 20 minutes before the fireworks started.

Hello. This place is a must see. Get ready to see some future there. I think the first thing that will catch you attention is the tram that you will ride into the park. Inside ins a whole other world. There is a lot to see and plenty of games and if you have kids they can even be invited to act as a star wars character. A real lifetime experience for kids. Also great place for couples to spend some quality time. There is a very good and highly rated hotel within as well. I visited this place once and I will go back whenever I will have time and a good planned trip. Thanks for reading and please ask questions if you have any.

Brought the 2020 new year in at Disneyland cleared security at 6.30 am and left the park at 12.30 am next morning. Best way to bring in a new year - 100,000 other people must have agreed as it was at capacity. 2 celebrations 9 pm and midnight. A long 18 hour day but we had the best time and have memories to last a life time.

The nightly fireworks show at Disneyland is one of the best shows that you can experience. Disney has the coordination of the music, commentary and fireworks down to a science.
It is a spectacular event weather you watch from in front of the Snow White’s Castle, from Adventureland, down Main Street or Frontierland.
It should not be missed.... in a word, spectacular!

We went to Disney in October, thought it would be great for our 8 yr old, she was sadly disappointed as she had to spend (no exaggeration) half of the day queueing for not very good rides, we had the worst meal known to mankind for the price of eating at a top notch restaurant in the UK,it was called a burger but burger it was not!!' it was tired, it was worn, the whole place was so far removed from how kids interact with games,fun,society, friends, the Internet, that I was shocked...it's just the brand that is clinging on for dear life by the skin of its teeth, kids want a quick fix now, they want to view something, see something, feel something they ask the Internet and bang it's there.!!'only 2-4 yr olds were able to be placated by sweets and other sugary crap, then the meltdown hit around mid day effecting us all....anyone above that age played along with the facade In between staring at their own phone screens..
..disneyland..jeez, I was shocked at how many people were quite happy (adults) stood in a queue for over 30 mins of their life for a lame go on a attempt at a so called ride
....Sorry to be so truthful but it was possibly the worst thing I have ever done to myself, it was like being a manic depressant while at the park, I was on a very small high during my time on a ride but the in-between was like the most depressive part of the year...Oh God the blackness...the endless shuffling, the overweight heavy breathing from the know it all behind me waxing lyrical about the history of star wars, not to mention the employees knowing so much about said ride (it was all forced) and me having to share my air with these cretins was almost to much to bear...and then, another ride...the elation, (short lived) for another hour of standing in line like lambs to the slaughter and waiting for God knows what.....
So no.
..I won't be going back, unless your wiley advertising convinces me to.
...in that case I will be back, sampling my emotional roller-coaster and borderline schizophrenic queueing of highs and lows..

Take note disneyland... People want a quick fix, you are not there yet!''''!!'
