Does Magic Kingdom Do Fireworks in the Rain?

Magic Kingdom still does their famous firework shows in the rain, however they will postpone or cancel firework shows due to heavy winds and lightning. In fact, many guests will put on ponchos and watch the fireworks in the rain.

Other guests will bring umbrellas, but we'd recommend bringing ponchos in order to not block off the views of other guests.

Additionally, if you're traveling with kiddos, you'll want to make sure that you bring a stroller rain cover ahead of time to make sure that they're protected from the rain.

Use the My Disney Experience App

The My Disney Experience app is a fantastic tool to use as you can see the fireworks schedule of every park directly from the app.

You'll simply open the app, head to the home screen, and click "Today's Showtimes".

From there, you'll be able to see all of the firework shows that are scheduled for the day.

If the shows are postponed, or canceled, they'll update directly on this app.

The best part is that you can click on each show, and find out more details like what age group it is intended for, what time it is at, how to get there, and you can even add it to your itinerary.

Preparing For the Rain

We've made a checklist of items to have and do in case of the rain:

  • Bring a Poncho
  • Bring a Stroller Rain Cover (If Traveling With Kids)
  • Download the My Disney Experience app
  • Know What the Indoor Rides are, and Ride These Tides When it Rains
  • Watch a Show Inside
  • Mobile Food and Beverages
  • See Attraction Wait Times
  • Use Live GPS-Enabled Maps

The reason that a poncho is better than an umbrella at a theme park is that it's very lightweight and can fit virtually anywhere when it is folded up.

If you bring an umbrella, you may need to store it in lockers throughout your day. You can purchase ponchos on Amazon ahead of time, or at the park.

The My Disney Experience app is extremely handy as it provides live wait times, an interactive map of the park, allows you to pre-order food, and even save your car's location in the app.

Bring a Stroller Rain Cover

If you're traveling with kids, and are using strollers at the park, you should consider bringing a stroller rain cover.

Although we mentioned ponchos for the walking adults, you'll want to protect the kiddos from the rain with a stroller rain cover.

Disney World's strollers do not come with a stroller rain cover, so you'll want to buy one in advance.

Stroller Size Allowance

As a reminder:

  • Strollers must be 31” (79cm) wide and 52” (132cm) long or smaller.
