NYE "practice" fireworks

We are looking at going to watch the NYE fireworks on Dec 30th. Is it just MK that does a practice run? What time do they start (FWIW I'm not talking about Wishes, but the actual NYE celebration ones!) Thanks!

This is without a doubt one of the bet fireworks shows of the year! If you have never seen it, I would recommend staying up a bit past your bedtime to do so.

You can see them live here > http://home.earthlink.net/~dzeyenr/fireworks.html at 11:50pm EST both tonight AND tomorrow night! Wishes is at 8:30pm EST so stop by and see those as well and compare the two shows.

Better than the 4th???? I'm trying to convince DH to go tonight and just try and keep the kids sleeping in the stroller, but he works tomorrow, so I may just be watching your link!

It was absolutely breathtaking. We watched from right in front of new fantasyland and it was just an incredible experience.

We watched wishes at 8:30 from the beach at the poly tonight and the practice New Years show from Main Street. Amazing!!!! We need to figure out what to do tomorrow. Going to Animal Kingdom for most of the day.

I watched from my bedroom windows.

Was just about asleep and the sound was carrying really loud last night, so I realized it was the "test run." Looks like a great show and we'll watch it for sure tonight.

They sure were loud! Had just gone to bed and wasn't sure what all the banging noises were and then I figured it out

Just saw them last night. It was well worth it. I am a big fan of Wishes, but the Fantasy in the Sky fireworks just blew me away! It really was an amazing show!
