This year sees the 17th Annual International Firework Festival take place in February and March of this year. There will be 8000 spectators in attendance to see the firework shows intensified by the stunning snow-covered backdrops and fabulous live music.
Courchevel is one of the prime ski resorts in the French Alpine region and boasts 600 kilometers of pistes ranging from 23 of the easy green runs for beginners to 10 black runs which are incredibly difficult and are really for experts only.

This fabulous competition has been running since 1997 and continues to thrill young and old alike when the pyrotechnicians from some of the most highly respected professional firework teams take centre stage.
This year will be a Champion of Champions events bringing together the winners since the last in 2013 to thrill the gathered 200,000 plus spectators and although the teams do indeed always go all out to win, a Champion of Champions events does seem to bring that little additional sparkle to their eyes.
The winners of the last few years who we suspect will be invited along are as follows:
If you not one of the lucky ones to be able to witness the Disney magic in the flesh this New Year’s Eve, then worry no more this is the next best thing.
Walt Disney world will be putting a live stream of the grand New Year’s Eve performance “fantasy in the sky” firework display along with the musical accompaniment from classic Disney films such as Peter Pan, Aladdin, Pinocchio and many more. The Park goes all out for the fireworks at any time but on New years eve they make it event more special with a spectacular finale.
You can catch the live stream on the Disney Parks Blog or the Disney Parks YouTube Channel. Beginning roughly at 11:45pm EST, and beforehand there will be a special countdown on the programme at 11:59pm to make sure you don’t miss out on this explosive start to 2019.
If you have been lucky enough to Visit any of the Parks, then they are asking for you to contribute and possibly be part of the broadcast by posting photos on Twitter using the hashtag #DisneyParksLIVE.
If you are one of the lucky ones then there is plenty to see and do along with extra time to play as Magic Kingdom and Epcot will stay open until 1am, Hollywood Studios open until 12am.
If you are on the west coast, then Disneyland stays open until 2am and California adventure open until 1am.
Personally, as I have been to Disney World during this time and trust me it will be magical as well as entertaining. But by offering the live stream this gives you the chance to celebrate the new year with Mickey and friends from the comfort of your own home.
