    Hello again moms! I find this site very helpful. We will be visiting Disney in July but are only staying for 3 nights at the Polynesian Resort. We are planning to see fantasmic. What other shows /fireworks would you recommend.

    Hi, Michelle!  You don't want to miss Wishes from the Magic Kingdom, which I think is one of the best fireworks shows anywhere.  It's well worth hanging out late at the Magic Kingdom to see, but you can also enjoy the show from the beach at the Polynesian resort, in case you want to head back to your room to relax.

    The other must see for me while on vacation is Illuminations:  Reflections of Earth at EPCOT.  This nightly show combines lasers, fireworks and music, and involves the whole World Showcase area of the theme park.  You can see the show from a couple of the EPCOT restaurants, but there are plenty of great viewing places all around World Showcase.

    Not a night time show, but if you are headed into Animal Kingdom, I never miss the Festival of the Lion King.  It may be my favorite stage show anywhere at Walt Disney World, and incorporates the popular music from the Lion King, acrobats, dancers - awesome.

    Have a wonderful time on your upcoming vacation, and thanks so much for your question!
