Attractions Magazine said the fireworks show was a test for the Halloween Not-So-Spooky Spectacular show, which starts Aug. 16.

A woman who lives near Disney, however, said she thought someone was breaking into her home.

Another nearby resident joked that instead of a rooster waking him up, the fireworks did the job instead.
