For what it's worth, the current 9:15 showtime works out great to catch the fireworks from Epcot, just after Illuminations wraps up. I was able to see pretty much the entire show from near the margarita stand in Mexico, but it seemed like it would be visible from roughly China to Canada Obviously we didn't get the Star Wars music, but I really enjoyed getting to watch fireworks to the Tapestry of Nations soundtrack. It seemed like lots of other people were also stopping to enjoy the bonus show (and due to EMH, we were also able to catch parts of Wishes as we were exiting the park around 10pm). It's obviously not the best viewing conditions, but it's pretty cool to see the entire show from a different park According to the WDW website, the 9:15 showtime is only through next week, when it will get pushed back to 9:45, so act soon if you want to catch this

I agree. The Frozen fireworks took my breath away!:)

I wouldn't panic quite yet. The schedule is done a month or two at time, but their "months" aren't the actual calendar months and are 4-week spans instead. The calendar has only been updated through Saturday, May 28th. The "June" dates (which would include May 29th, 30th, and 31st) will likely not be posted publicly until Friday May 13th when they do the next calendar update for Studios. But since there are Fireworks on Saturday, May 28th (and no other Saturday in May), it looks like they expect Studios to be crowded as-per-usual on Memorial Day Weekend and I'd expect fireworks every single night of that weekend.

That seems like an odd choice to not have the fireworks on what is essentially a holiday weekend. Maybe they are replacing them with a 'Patriot' version? Like MK fireworks on the fourth of July? or am I just being optimistic.

No Symphony In The Stars on Memorial Day? Darn. That was the day I was scheduled to visit the Studios.

Exactly. I think people visiting this May and June have every reason to be miffed.

She didn't pay for a trip next year. If you pay for a meal tonight, get charged full price, and then get served half a lukewarm plate of reheated yesterday's food, do you accept the manager saying that in two years time they will start serving full plates again?

Recently anyway.

That's why after visiting 4x a year the past few years we have no plans or reservations to return to WDW for awhile. Fewer rides/attractions, more temporary walls, higher prices and a focus on charging extra for any experience they can make up.

we can't all afford to go every single year. especially when you live in the UK and flights are £1000 each alone. besides this is my honeymoon.

Daily fireworks wasn't even a thing until 4 months ago...

Switch to a night that has fireworks like we just did. Why make yourself angry on your vacation? I agree communication could be better, but at the end of the day, I'll switch things around to be happy. Already had two nights open due to the RoL fiasco.

More is coming in the next few years. Be patient.

What the hell disney, im paying to go into a park in May that has barely any rides and no fire works. starting to take the piss tbh.
