What Fireworks Show Is Currently at EPCOT?
The current fireworks show at EPCOT is called "EPCOT FOREVER".
EPCOT Forever replaced the previous firework show, Harmonious, on April 3rd, which debuted at EPCOT as part of the 50th-anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World.
EPCOT Forever is primarily a firework show, with laser effects and other pyrotechnics appearing briefly throughout.
Despite appearing back at EPCOT very recently, EPCOT Forever is only intended to be a temporary show while Disney works on a new, long-term firework show to debut in the near future.
What Time Are The Fireworks at EPCOT?
Barring any delays due to inclement weather or technical issues the fireworks at EPCOT begin at 9 PM almost every single night of the year.
This is unlike at Magic Kingdom where fireworks can rotate between different times throughout the month or even in a single week!
Heavy rainstorms, lightning, or high winds may sometimes cause the fireworks to be delayed or canceled at EPCOT, but this isn't a very common occurrence.
This is the same with technical issues - while they do happen on occasion it's extremely uncommon for the fireworks to be canceled because of technical issues. A short delay is most common if anything.
Around holidays or special events (such as New Year's Eve) the fireworks may start at a different time or have multiple performances.
Often during the busiest times of the year, Disney will bump the EPCOT fireworks to 9:30 PM to accommodate a later EPCOT closing time.
If you'll be attending EPCOT on a holiday or for a special event then we recommend double checking with Disney Cast Members or Guest Services to see what time the fireworks will start.
Most often though you can expect the fireworks to begin right at 9 PM without any issues or delays!
How Long Are The EPCOT Fireworks?
EPCOT Forever, the current EPCOT fireworks show, is about 10 minutes long from start to finish.
On holidays such as Christmas and New Years, there are sometimes additional scenes added to the fireworks show to celebrate this special time of year, but this varies from year to year.
If Disney is adding a few extra scenes to the fireworks show to celebrate the holidays then you can expect the show to last an extra 2-3 minutes longer at most.
What Time Does The Fireworks Show End?
The fireworks at EPCOT end around 9:10 PM.
At this point the rest of EPCOT is closed, so you'll likely be funneled toward the exit of the park.
While stores and some snack locations might still be open, all of the rides and attractions will be closed as well as the bigger restaurants after the fireworks conclude.
