If you ask anyone in America which entity is responsible for spreading the most joy and happiness you’ll probably get the Walt Disney Corporation for an answer.
But if you were to ask them which entity buys the most explosives after the Department of Defense, Disney would probably be pretty low on their list of responses.
But guess what? Disney really does purchase more explosives than any other entity in the United States besides the Department of Defense.
If you’ve ever been to a Disney theme park or show you probably had the opportunity to witness at least one of their amazing fireworks displays.
As you can imagine, those awesome fireworks displays use a LOT of explosives that are many times more powerful (and potentially more dangerous) than the fireworks your city or town set off every the 4th of July.
What’s more, Disney sets off those fireworks every single night!
In addition to the fireworks they purchase, Disney also buys tons of even more powerful explosives for use in the movies and other shows their production company produce.
It takes a lot of explosive power to blow up a car or make a bridge collapse, and some of Disney’s productions do plenty of those types of things.
So the next time you watch a local fireworks display light up the sky, just imagine what it would look like if the folks putting it on had pockets as deep as the Disney Corporation!
