It is argued by many that no Disney Day is complete without watching a nighttime firework spectacular. Capping off the day’s thrilling climax, each Disney Theme Park–especially each Castle Park–has its own way of bidding its Guests a “good night kiss.”

Readers familiar with Walt Disney World have watched “Wishes,” “Happily Ever After,” and now “Disney Enchantment,” light up the sky around Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom, or “IllumiNations,” “EPCOT Forever,” and now “HarmonioUS” on World Showcase Lagoon. Disneyland readers are anxiously awaiting the return of “Disneyland Forever” to Sleeping Beauty Castle next month, and Tokyo Disneyland presents “Disney Light the Night” on their Cinderella Castle.

Over at Disneyland Paris, that beloved nighttime spectacular is called “Disney Illuminations.” It returned to France’s own Sleeping Beauty Castle earlier this year to follow the brand new drone-incorporating Castle Show “Disney D-Light.” But it appears that fireworks will not be taking to Friday Night Skies.

According to the Disneyland Paris app, only “Disney D-Light” has a show time listed for 8:00 pm. There is no time scheduled for Disney Illuminations.

While the exact reason for this cancelation is unclear, Disneyland Paris states on its website:

“Please note that in certain unforeseen circumstances, such as poor weather conditions or during major maintenance work, the show schedule may be modified or the show may be cancelled without prior notification.”

One can speculate that the cancelation is due to a special Annual Passholder event being held tonight at both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park:

Disneyland Fireworks in Southern California, and Magic Kingdom Fireworks at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, have also experienced last-minute firework cancelations, but they have mostly been due to weather-related conditions like heavy winds in Anaheim, or torrential rain outside of Orlando.
