are there fireworks every night?

My fiancee and I are going to be spending the first four nights of our vacation May 7th-11th at Disneyland. Problem is thats a Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs night. We are HUGE fireworks and parade people and we really want to see the Aladdin show. Will these all be running during the week? If not we're going to have to change our plans a bit!

Only on Friday will they show. One big clue is that DL closes at 8PM every night that week until Friday the 11th.

I think what Albort means is that they will be scheduled on Friday. But they do get canceled due to weather and so they will not show "for sure". See "HydroGuy's Fireworks Rule" www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1199851

Thats not entirely true actually, during winter break, they showed fireworks at 7:45PM and park closes at 8PM. But most likely, that rule will work.

But she said she's there a M, T, W and Thurs night, not Friday. I think she may be out of luck on fireworks unless she posted the dates wrong!

Yeah, it wouldn't apply here. In May, it's not dark enough at 7:45 to have fireworks.

I will be there May 6-11. There are no fireworks or parade scheduled on the calendar. Is there a chance they will add it to the schedule still? They are open until 11:00 on the Sunday that I am arriving. Thanks!

thanks so much for everyone's responses. I'm so disappointed. I'm thinking maybe we'll come a day early just for the fireworks but is it worth it? I LOVE fireworks and I heard that remember dreams come true is much better than wishes...any feed back? thanks again!

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the fireworks and if I was coming for a not so often trip, I would most definitely make sure my trip included atleast one fireworks night if I could!!

Yes, there will most likely be fireworks, they just haven't published the schedule that far ahead yet.

And serendipity, if you can swing it, definitely plan your vacation so that you can catch the fireworks at least once. They are worth the trip.

Not only is Remember better than wishes, it is the best show Disney has ever created, IMO. You MUST see them.
