Walt Disney World is operating with temporary limitations on certain forms of entertainment. For instance, the theme parks currently missing their nighttime spectacular shows, such as “Fantasmic!” and “Happily Ever After.” So, those traveling to Disney World these days will not be seeing any fireworks displays. It’s clear we won’t see fireworks at Disney World anytime soon, but it’s possible something is in the works. Disney has filed a new construction permit with the Orange County Comptroller’s Office and it pertains to Magic Kingdom.

The work permit lists the following description: MK Project Nugget Main F-B Electrical for 1440 Floridian Way. This is the address of the fireworks launch site at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The permit lists the work as labor, material, and/or electrical for construction.

We don’t know all the details of “Project Nugget” at this point in time. However, a permit filed for the fireworks launching site indicates Disney is prepping it for future usage. This typically means some kind of developments or improvements in the area.

We’re wishing it means Disney is considering a modified show to surprise guests, but stay tuned for more information. Many are eager to see fireworks return to the nighttime sky above Magic Kingdom. We’ll wait to see what Disney does next for theme park guests.
