File under: One Heck of An Alarm Clock. Yesterday morning, Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom woke to the sound of fireworks – At 6:00 AM!
Of course, many guests (and nearby residents) were confused.
(Not-so) Good Morning Fireworks!

Fireworks exploded over Disney World in an early morning dazzling display Tuesday morning, surprising many who took to social media to sound off about the noise.
In a letter to resort guests, Disney said it was “gearing up for an exciting fall season” and warned that they “may experience noise impacts.”
Disney also apologized for any inconvenience it caused.
Of course, Twitter was abuzz (ablaze?) with reaction:

I never tweeted this because I was very angry and went back to sleep but I woke up at around 6am this freaking out because I thought someone was trying to break into my house but it ended up just being Disney setting off their fireworks…AT 6 IN THE MORNING I was so angry

Hey @Disney I understand the 9pm and midnight fireworks during the summer. But 6am “testing” fireworks is a bit much. Woke me up this morning. You should buy me a coffee.

Nope, these are not the 9:15pm fireworks. Disney tested the Halloween fireworks at 6:00am this morning. Which is pretty cool unless you have a Theme Park View room at Bay Lake Tower (and stayed up real late last night). 😬 pic.twitter.com/xhajV9PUcp

The most Disney Life thing ever: everyone being woken up by them testing the Halloween fireworks at 6 am
The most Jess thing ever: sleeping right through them and having no idea until logging onto Twitter this morning 😂😂

Anyway, you get the point.
Whoops: Bonus Fireworks Anyone?
Not sure how this might sit with my fam. But chances are good that they would have slept through it, anyway.
Me, I’m an insomniac, so it would have been great to hear/see.
But what about you? Did you see or hear the fireworks on Tuesday AM? Let us know in the comments.
