Disneyland asked to launch cleaner fireworks

Posted Tuesday, October 14, 2003 5:12 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Officials at Disneyland are working on technology to cut the amount of smoke produced by fireworks in the park. The South Coast Air Quality Management District has asked Disney to take steps to reduce the emissions.

Next maybe they'll get Disneyland for the smoke that comes out of the Mark Twain Riverboat and the steam trains...

For heaven's sake, don't forget the fact that they use electricity. We all know that those bad coal plants pollute the enviroment and those ghastly Nuke Plants fry our children's brains.

I hope you're kidding. Those "ghastly" nuclear plants do far less harm to the environment than any coal or oil-based electric plant.

Now if we were a little more like France and not letting Carter-era paranoia dictate our handling of spent fuel, it would be recycled until it didn't exist and we'd have no nuclear waste at all.

Tongue in cheek. Tongue in cheek. Very Tongue in cheek. You know a single coal power plant releases more harmful radiation into the air each year than has EVER been released by nuclear plants.

I really feel no sypathy at all for those people who moved right next to Disneyland and always complain about things like that. Disneyland was there before any of those houses, it was all orange groves; it was dumb to completely surround the theme park with neighborhoods and such, and it also makes it hard for parks like that and Knott's to expand because there is no land. If the people want peace and quiet and clean air, they should move.

Unless Disneyland is using different shells, there should be no debris. I work for the company who designed the debrisless shell that Disneyland is supposed to be using.

Jeez , some of you guys are jerks! Could you try not to have a completely Biased opinion , and consider how you would feel if giant clobs of soot were landing on your house and cars? Especially when Disney could use some things that didn't do that.

Think of how the people feel.

Couldn't the same thing be said for people stupid enough to live next to airports? C'mon, make those planes silent...and that jet exhaust smells mad...fix that too!

Please. The people move in next to something that pre-dates them and they have the nerve to complain about it? They deserve a boot to the head....

They're not complaining about noise or something like that , they're complaining about soot landing on their homes and such , which is a problem that can be fixed.

Like you would ever think something like that would happen if you lived next to a park.....

I agree that they should have clean fireworks, what I'm mainly referring to is the noise complaints. Both Disneyland and Knott's have had to take measures to reduce noise (most notably the sneeze guards on Maliboomer). I can say that just by standing in a park parking lot, the screams from rides like those are hardly loud at all and shouldn't bother any one unless they like to spend time in their backyard with complete silence and serenity; in which case they should move to the countryside. In the future, I hope that city planners avoid developing dense residential areas in the immediate vicinity of places like major theme parks.

Shell debris isn't large chunks of soot, the people are talking about the shell fragments themselves.Disney has the shells that Lantis Fireworks designed for them. It is a shell that make almost no debris at all. Kenny Lantis is the one who did the designing. The only reason i can think of that Disney wouldn't be using them is that they are a little pricey, and since Disney has seen a decline in guests I'd say they probably don't have the $14,000 a night to spend
