Starting from 1983 when the resort opened, fireworks shows were presented at Tokyo Disneyland. There are many fireworks shows which were presented along the years. When Tokyo DisneySea opened, fireworks shows were also presented in that park. Nowadays, fireworks were presented among the entire Tokyo Disney Resort.
Unlike the other American Disney Parks,each fireworks show only lasts for 4-5 minutes every night(except Once Upon A Time).
The winds at Tokyo during summer are very strong, so fireworks were not presented during summer, except for Once Upon a Time, a castle projection show which includes only few fireworks.
Show cancellations may occur due to inclement weather conditions or strong winds.
