  • who makes the choices

    Last night when I was watching the fireworks, it stoped in the middle of the show and they announced that the fireworks were not going to continue because winds picked up. So who makes the decision to stop the show? And if winds were already high, why didn't they just cancel the show?

    Re: who makes the choices

    The Disneyland Fire Dept. makes the decision, and people generally take more kindly to half a fireworks show than nothing at all, so if it LOOKs like they're going to have a clear window weather-wise, they'll start them and keep a close eye on the weather, stopping them if something changes.

      While it only happened once, a long time ago during Fantasy in the Sky ... I still remember when they were fired into a flock of ducks! I have a hard time not smiling when I think about that memory.

          Actually, the fireworks department makes the call, it also depends on wind direction, not just speed. DFD makes the call on closing certain attractions during fireworks

            Yeah, I noticed that the smoke was blowing right over main street, so right away I said to myself "this is not looking good". I don't think people would appreciate smoke blowing in their faces

              I was watching the show near Photo Supply last night. The white test balloons they were sending up prior to the show were drifting south. I can understand how, with low level fireworks, this can be a concern during the show.

              The thought just came to mind... During high winds, why can't they go with a safer version of the show that eliminates some of the elements that are sensitive to winds? Back in the 90's, during Fantasy In the Sky, show cancellations were more rare.

                We are talking about DLR right, because generally is the Show Director that sits atop the photo supply store that makes the decision along with the 5 pyro techs in the pyro booths throughout the park and the FD.
