I think the estimate is $10,000-$15,000 for Magic Kingdom (excluding special performances), $35,000-$45,000 for EPCOT, and $8,000-$12,000 for MGM-Studios
During our trip earlier this month to the World, Rebecca and I were talking about how much Disney must spend on fireworks every day. You have Wishes, Illuminations and Fantasmic EVERY day! I can't imagine what it must cost them.
So, can anybody tell me what they spend, even approximate amounts are fine. Also, does anyone know how much Wishes costs by it's self?
I heard somewhere Disney is the number 1 user of fireworks in the world.

I thought I heard somewhere that Wishes costs somewhere around $45,000-$60,000 a night, but I'm not entirely sure-- either way, thousands upon thousands of dollars to make their guests thrilled!
Now we know why ticket prices are going up!

That is a lot, but I bet they make up the $8-12k for Fantasmic off of consession sales alone. Think of all those light up toys, drinks, and snacks sold every night. You only have to make $2 per guest to cover the fireworks cost. (Granted there is a lot of labor involved, and I'm not sure if that's included in the $8-12k figure given by Summer Sun.)
