Exploding Gophers Batman!

The Disney Themeparks have become known for their fireworks spectaculars. Recently there has been a move to choreograph these shows to music with shells launched from multiple points. The man behind these shows is the amazingly talented, Steve Davison (creative director with Walt Disney Creative Entertainment). Davison, among with his creative associates like Michael Maines, deserves much of the credit for keeping guests flowing through the gates at the mouse’s themeparks during the last decade while few new rides were being built.

Among these new shows is Wishes at WDW’s Magic Kingdom. Security on these shows is tight as each shell is essentially an explosive device. So park officials are at a loss to explain how one of these shells made it into a local dump.
