Two large explosions went off in the firework area about 15 min before the fireworks were supposed to start. They have been canceled- hope everything is okay back there.

Two misfires last night. The night before, the air was too dry.

Were there fireworks? Or just exploding sounds? - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 8:53PM
2 sets of fireworks...weird tho...didn't "sound" like the normal fireworks - toph  2418.2 #60 8:54PM
😁 that doesn't sound good. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 8:55PM
pyro from the magic, the memories, and you are low level pyrotechnics so they don't really tend to make much noise.. they are rather quiet - DonaldMissingPants  304.1 #885 8:57PM
right...i could be in certain parks of the park and they shouldn't be that loud...they went off and automatically everyone knew those didn't sound right. then a second set went off and same...hope they get it straightened out...3rd day in a row they've been cancelled right? - toph  2418.2 #60 9:02PM
It was surprising, but I guess we just wanted to assume it was something normal and not potentially dangerous. 😨 - bluefairy  643.8 #313 1:12PM
I was wondering why they are not going off on the mattercam! Gosh I hope everyone is safe. Thank you for posting. - Jazenails  300.4 #914 8:53PM

Hope everything's okay.  Since I didn't work tonight, I don't have the sounds to compare to the last time I heard something similar back in December.

Nothing has shown up online yet. Scary for anybody in that area! - LilSterner  5503.0 #19 9:37PM
They were fireworks from the remember show- they exploded at ground level. - mwonandroid  348.8 #679 9:42PM
We were at Small World when it went off. The first time we had our back to Toontown and heard the boom. We were trying to figure out what it was. We turned to Toontown before the second and saw the fireworks go off. Blue and white ones. They were super low. I really hope everyone is OK! - Autoalice  161.4 #2545 12:48AM

I was in tomorrow land getting in line for Autopia and we didn't hear the fireworks but we heard an ambulance pass by behind the train station back stage :-/ didn't think anything of it until now that I'm seeing this post. - Principessa  324.4 #780 1:22AM
Was sitting at Jolly Holiday when that happened.. knew something wasn't right. I hope no one was hurt! - Jacqueline  580.0 #349 1:28AM
On friday night the fireworks werent going because it was predicted to have strong winds, but at about 545 there were the rain/willow ones that are above the castle, they went off and after that nothing. but i think its just some tech difficulties - NeverlandClub  390.6 #576 1:58AM
Hope everyone okay! - jacdanfan  11394.2 #5 4:56AM
We were there Fri night too and it didn't seem windy at all!! But we did see the ones you saw also. I pray everything is ok!!! Anyone hear yet what happened last night??? - ohhhtoodles  365.2 #627 7:22AM
Usually when they don't shoot them and it seems like their is good weather it's due too that they didn't reach their guest crowd to make it worth it - Sergio4419  53.1 #4657 8:28AM
... Hardly a reason for cancellation. Hardly. - BCC  4783.2 #27 8:29AM

Wondering if there is any new news. Was anyone hurt? IS everyone OK? It's been on my families mind since we saw them go off last night. My son can't stop asking and worrying. - Autoalice  161.4 #2545 10:25AM
We heard those booms from miles away. - CptKirk  766.3 #245 10:55AM
