Disneyland Adds Second Nightly Fireworks Show Thanksgiving Week

Summer Nightastic at Disneyland

Chances to catch Disneyland's popular fireworks show just got better--at least during Thanksgiving week.

From Nov. 21 to Nov. 28, the "Disneyland Forever" fireworks show will now have an earlier run at 6:30 p.m., adding to the previous show that ran at 9:30 p.m.

During the holidays, Disneyland experiences an overflow of people, at times causing gate closures. Officials hope the added shows can ease the problem and thin out crowds.

If the strategy works, Disneyland will consider adding a second show to future selected days.

As the Disneyland Resort celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, the company launched an "all-new" fireworks spectacular, complete with visual projections, inflatable units and computerized laser-mapping.

Fireworks at Disneyland began in 1956 with a pyrotechnics display called "Fantasy In the Sky." Since then, Disneyland's has launched a number of themed shows.
