Fireworks #BlogFlash2012

Hi. It’s now Day 19 on #Blogflash2012 and today’s prompt is Fireworks. I’ve seen some incredible displays over the years, one of which was at the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics. However, for me there’s one which sticks in my mind like superglue and I’ll never forget it!


The most fantastic display I’ve ever seen was at Disney in Florida. Hurricane Charlie had ripped through the area the night before, but it was business as normal in the Disney complexes.

The Epcot Centre

At the Epcot Centre, the day ended in the most breathtaking firework display I’d ever seen. I was mesmerised by the beautifully orchestrated display to a point where it was almost hypnotic.

Like a concerto, the colours danced in the night sky, each new part increasingly exquisite as it rose to a crescendo of coloured light exploding in glorious abundance.

The last vestiges faded, my trance ended yet the magic remained . . .

forever etched into my mind and heart.

  1. I have been in, probably, the same place for the fireworks. You are right, an awesome display of color and music. Thanks for your blog flashes. I look forward to them every day.

    • Hi Deborah,
      Great to hear from you! I’m glad you’re enjoying the posts – it’s a lot of fun to do!
      Those photos were from the actual Epcot show and yes, I had an amazing time!

    • Hi Lillie,
      You’re dead right there, Disney does know how to put on a magnificent show and the photos are from Epcot. Thanks for stopping by and for your great comment.

  2. I love the fireworks at Disney World! We didn’t get to see the show at Epcot (Illuminations, I think) the last time we visited but we did see the ones over the castle in the Magic Kingdom. That was bug’s first real fireworks show. She was crashing hard by the end of it.

    Thanks for the beautiful pictures. Makes me want to go back.
