ok, I really dont thing 3 hours is really enough time to include fireworks. But, this will be our first time attending one of these events.
They usually show HEA fireworks prior to the event starting, like the fireworks end at 9 or 9:30 (hence why some events start at 9 and some start at 9:30, with it getting darker later in the summer vs. the fall the start those events later due to fireworks being later, which was my first hint fireworks were coming back). I usually take this as a time to start doing rides while everyone else is crammed in the hub, and then regular day ticket folks get blocked from going back and riding stuff. You're given a wrist band so they can tell who can stay and who can't, and it can get hectic at first after the fireworks, so I stay in the back area so I don't get caught in the swarm of day guest traffic. I ride rides and watch fireworks at the same time, win/win (but I've seen HEA a dozen or more times, so I'm fine with missing the projections).Glad I was able to our tickets. Going to be interesting to see how many of these will be vloggers. I wonder if that will help keep ride times down even more!!!!!
As far as vloggers, a lot of them will be grabbing treats, running around to see characters and cavalcades, most don't really run around to rides so you won't be fighting them in line really. That's not to say there won't be ride lines, that's still at that time of year when some schools haven't started back yet so it can still be a bit crowed. I did a VAH around the same time and it wasn't empty, it was still fun with low waits though, but wasn't sold out.
