Happy Independence Day! Today starts 3 straight days of fireworks shows for my team and I. As a pyrotechnician & fan of Disney, I love the Wishes fireworks show at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. In celebration, here are a few videos focused on the behind the scenes of the Wishes Show. At the end of the post will be a video of the entire Wishes show! These videos will show you what it takes to set up for a fireworks show. A good estimate for setup time is one hour of setup for every minute of show. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
Here is a video of Wishes in its entirety. I get chills every time I see it or watch the video.
If you decide not to attend a fireworks show by certified technicians, and do your own show in your neighborhood or community, please be safe and respect the products. Here are some fireworks safety tips.
