Important CHANGES Coming to Fireworks Times in Magic Kingdom

If watching the fireworks in Magic Kingdom is a must-do for you, there is an important CHANGE you need to know about.

Disney Enchantment

Disney Enchantment is Magic Kingdom’s regularly scheduled fireworks show (it’s not offered on nights when Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place, as a special Halloween-themed show is offered those nights). Previously, Enchantment was offered at 9:20PM. That then changed to 9PM. And now fireworks times are changing AGAIN.

If you look at the Magic Kingdom park times on the Disney World calendar for the week of August 19th, you’ll see the 9PM Enchantment time listed on days when it is offered.


That continues through to October 15th. Starting October 17th, however, you’ll notice a change. On that date, fireworks times CHANGE to 8:15PM.

That’s a pretty significant difference and a big jump to keep in mind. Daylight Savings doesn’t officially end until November 6th in 2022, but it appears likely that these changes are being made in advance of the time change.


It appears that this 8:15PM time continues past that 17th date and further into October. Disney World hours have only been released through part of October, so the calendar wouldn’t let us see beyond that, but we expect these times could continue further into the year.


Of course, things are subject to change again. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience app for updates before and throughout your trip.
