Permits filed for new fireworks launch site at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Nov 30, 2015 in "Disney's Hollywood Studios"

Disney has filed a construction permit for a new fireworks launch area at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The new site is located outside of the park, across World Drive on an area that is currently undeveloped. The site is inline with Hollywood Blvd, and is somewhat similar to the Magic Kingdom setup with a launch site in the north service area outside of the park.

The main launch site for current fireworks shows at the Studios is on a temporary trailer parked near to the former tram tour station. Low level pyro is launched from the rooftops around the Great Movie Ride.

It is expected that the tram tour site will soon be unavailable due to construction of Toy Story Land, and the new launch site will be essential to continue with firework shows at the park.

As part of the park's Star Wars celebrations, a nightly firework show will begin in early January 2016.
