    That's cool!

    not to get too far off track, but I've heard their explosive mortars are made on site and are made day to day. I would have guessed because there's so many, and it's cheaper to make them yourself. Apparently that link blows that whole theory out of the water!

    I've also heard comments about a single MK firework show costing well into the 5 digit range.

    I have heard this too, first heard way back in 1991. Most likely this also includes the insurance premiums too

    I know at Epcot backstage the mortars are delivered about everyday. i have heard it is up to $70,000 a night for fireworks nightly on property. now if that is true i dont know but it should be close.

    Well, the shows are well worth it! They're the most magical displays of fireworks I've ever seen.

    When you hear the knell of a requiem bell weird glows gleam where spirits dwell
    Restless bones etherealize rise as spooks of every size
    Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize!
