According to a post today on the official Disney Parks Blog, the Symphony In The Stars: A Galactic Spectacular nightly fireworks show will begin on December 18 2015.

It was originally expected to open in early January 2016, but it now appears to be launching in time for the busy holiday week and just 1 day after the premier of the new show for the Star Wars The Force Awakens ticketed event on December 17 2015.

The new nightly fireworks spectacular will feature music from the entire Star Wars saga, including the new Force Awakens movie.

Also announced is a new dessert party for the nightly firework show, beginning in the new year.

SW is indeed likely to stay indefinitely. I think Frozen may just be done for now.

This could be a permanent thread if the rumors coming from that site that shall not be named are true. Any rumblings here? It would be another huge win for DHS! Only thing is, Where would Frozen Summer go if TDO and/or the public wants it? MK maybe after Wishes ? They could keep the Dream Lights for that. If MK gets it, it should be an addition, NOT replace FOF, MSEP, or Wishes with the events.

Well if a Year of A Million Dreams lasted, two years, a season should last 6 months :)

Only tangentially related, but does anyone know how long "Seasons of the Force" (specifically, Hyperspace Mountain) will be going on in DL? We are going in March and I'm hoping it will still be going on, but expect it to end sooner than that.

Daily, 8pm.

Any update to the fireworks schedule? I can't find them online and was wondering if this will be held through March (or later)... Will they be offered every night?

If it's the same ones they run during Star Wars Weekends, the fireworks themselves are only about 7-8 minutes.

Haven't come across how long the fireworks will last 10, 15 , 20 minutes or more?? I have to change transportation pickup time so anyone hearing seeing info please reply!!!

Yes, it's at 8 pm after the holiday crowds leave.

I'm guessing it's Osborne related? So they don't have close Osborne super early? If that's the case we should see a regular schedule after New Years.

It would seem. I don't know what they are supposed to do in the park til midnight, but that's a different discussion.

Next Big ThingDec 05, 2015

Ok then. I guess they're trying to get people to stay in the park? It would make sense if it were for that reason.

I hope that's the next fireworks spectacular... "Schedule in the Sky"
