  • Good chance that there will be NO Fireworks Tuesday thru Thanksgiving

    Just want to give folks a heads-up, the weather forecasters are predicting strong Santa Ana winds, which will more than likely force the fireworks to be cancelled due to safety issues.

    These winds just seem to be getting worse and worse each year.

    Ta Da!

      I don't have a problem with it. That just means the alternate version of the show will be performed.

        I pray that those forecasts are wrong.

        And the fireworks at the DLR would be the least of my concerns with that news.

        In any event, thanks for the heads-up, DB.
        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.

          Actually, I recall lots of Santa Anas back in the '70s when I was young. There were far fewer in the '80s and '90s, but they're picking up again.

            Those are my memories too (and adding the 1960's in there as well).

            Keep in mind that this is a long-range forecast, folks. And there's still some room for hope that the conditions change in the direction of lower winds, before then. So...keep those fingers crossed.

                    I'm not sure about the in-park experience, but as you may recall you'll be dealing with very warm and dry winds...for me, they really kick up the allergies, and make me feel chapped, and much more fatigued and irritable. It's probably my least favorite kind of weather.

                    Also...with the winds the brushfires seem to always come...so be prepared for smoke and ash in the air if, God please forbid, the pattern repeats itself.
                    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.

                      Not really... if it's normal strong Santa Ana winds, pyro is canceled all the way.

                      I know there is some minor changes they can make to "Remember" if it's a little windy (like not launching the Hub or castle pyro), but Believe doesn't use many of those effects anyways. Remember is normally canceled during windy times to. Of course they will wait until showtime to make the final call in case the wind dies down enough.

                      If you're just talking about the snow effect, yes, that will still happen but it will only blow up and over Main Street and then backstage. Although this year at least the castle will have the new light show going on.

                        Well, hopefully our governor has his act together and we'll have spotter planes in the air with crews standing by....BEFORE A FIRE BREAKS OUT. Hello? :bash:

                        Hopefully the winds will die down before next weekend arrives. Depending on where the high is located, some areas will be perfectly calm. *Crosses fingers*

                              Before this becomes a wind-whipped wildfire right here and now, let's douse the flame by saying I think he was talking about action by the governor with no reference to the heroic firefighters.

                              Back to the topic....

                                It's nothing to be worried about... it might just be a little windy at times. It doesn't really effect the park besides fireworks. The Santa Ana's aren't THAT bad in Anaheim (go out to the Riverside/Corona area where the wind can get up to 60 to 70+ MPH if you want to see what bad wind is).

                                Because of Disney's location even if it is just a little windy the fireworks get canceled a lot. The park is right in the middle of a city, there's not much else they can do. If the show was ran and created a fire in Anaheim, you'd see just as many mad people here saying how wrong it is for Disney to allow the show to happen. Even Angel's Stadium has more "fallout" area than Disney- so a lot of summer nights, Angel's can launch their fireworks but Disney can't.

                                  The firefighters are awesome and get an A+ in my book. The governor and the bureaucracy of this state, on the other hand, get an F. We went through this kind of devastation just a couple of years ago, and what did they fix? NOTHING! We all saw those winds coming, and our state leadership sat on their hands. Ticks me off to no end. And here come the winds again.

                                  Firefighters = Heroes.

                                  Bureaucracy = Idiots.


                                  Now...back to the discussion of fireworks and winds.

                                      I wouldn't change any plans over their forecast.

                                      They can hardly guess what tomorrow's weather will be like versus next week...

                                      I don't know of any career where you can make so many mistakes and still keep your job like that of a weather forecaster.

                                      With the exception of the DMV of course...
