  • [Question] DCA Fireworks?

    Anyone but me want DCA to get their own fireworks for its 10th Anniversary?

    Most Likely they will be in DL but I want a "Remember" like fireworks Display (music, sounds and dialog) from the the ride.

    Anyone but me want this?
    Happy Halloween!!!

    I think World of Color will be an, uh...acceptable substitute.

        Re: DCA Fireworks?

        Well, if they were to just do a plain old fireworks show, they'd need a large enough backstage area to launch from. The only one of those I know of is behind Screamin', much like Disneyland uses the back of house areas behind Toontown. The problem is...like Toontown, that part of Paradise Pier would probably have to be closed. No Screamin', no TSMM, no Maliboomer. It'd be gorgeous to see the reflections in the water of the lagoon, but it'd be unfortunate to have to shut down several popular attractions, especially in a park with so few of those. And it'd still be kinda scaled down, since the backstage area in question is significantly smaller than the areas they use north of Disneyland.

          As much as I love fireworks, I don't know where they would launch. At Disneyland, the fireworks are themed with Sleeping Beauty's Castle. At DCA, would they use Grizzly Peak as the central point? That might be cool, but, again, where would be the launch site and where would be a good view area for the most people?

            I am fine with playing music to the fireworks in DCA, but having their own firework show is absolutely not worth it.

              At Tokyo DL and Disney Seas, they both use the same fireworks shows, but at Disney Seas they play to a different music. Maybe they can do that at DCA

                Nah... World of Color will still be relatively new at the time, so I'm thinking the only thing California Adventure will see for its' 10th Anniversary is a World of Color end tag (similar to Illuminations' Holiday end tag) and probably some merchandise.

                    Can they not float the launchers out on bargers to the middle of the lagoon, Illuminations-style (at Epcot)?

                      Honestly, WoC should already suffice, and the area in Paradise Pier (most logical area of the park to implant pyro) is too compact and I personally don't favor the idea.

                        I think the more appropriate theme for a fireworks show celebrating DCA's first ten years might be "Forget".
                        God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                              There's nowhere in DCA that could handle a full-blown fireworks show like Disneyland. They'd either be (a.) too close to the guests, or (b.) too close to the streets surrounding the park, either of which is a big no-no.

                              They actually use the same music in both parks. The only thing different is the intro & exit announcements (a.k.a. - "Enjoy the rest of your night in *insert park here*").

                                Agreed with all the above. I'm just anticipating the opening of WoC!

                                  You can do quite a bit with the "Low Level" Pyro like they launch off the Castle and the "surround-sound" launchers ringing the Hub for the "Is this haunted room actually stretching?..." flares. They were used to excellent effect in the DCA Lagoon's LuminAria christmas show a few years back, and every night for Fantasmic!.

                                  Those shells use 'Smokeless' powders (well, 'smoke less' is more accurate) and are designed to totally burn up with virtually no ash and trash to fall into the audience.

                                  They can't make big multi-break shells with those powders and parts - yet. But while they do look good close-up in the 100' to 300' range (Top of the castle to the far side of the Hub) they would get lost at the back of the park.

                                  The exception being the "Nine Line" flares and sparkle shells they use for the fan effect and 'comets' behind the castle - the light stays concentrated enough to retain the effect.

                                    I don't think DCA needs a fireworks show, I'd rather let Disneyland have the fireworks show and DCA use the WoC technology for its shows. I hope they do some kind of anniversary show for the 10th but more than likely they won't.

                                      DL should keep the fireworks - it's a nighttime tradition that should remain in that park. DCA's World of Color will be unique and one-of-a-kind - it is throwing out the rules.. i'm glad it will be that way.

                                        I think the OP was talking about a full-blown show (pun intended) similar to DL. I agree that quite a bit could be done with low-level stuff, though we've seen how that doesn't really work out smoke-wise in DCA (Luminaria anyone?). WoC should be different enough and extravagant enough that it'll hold its own.
