Is this normal every night?

Heard it today in the 1200 loop. Not unusual. Haven't noticed it this evening. Maybe the wind direction?

When I camped last time in loop 2000 I could hear Illumintions fireworks from EPCOT, the MK fireworks (and could see them partly over the tops of the trees), hear the boat toots coming into the Fort marina, and even the steam whistle from the MK train.

Camping at the Fort (especially under canvas/in a tent) can be an auditory experience.
