    We arrive at Paradise Pier on Sunday, April 23. I know the pool is closed but can we visit the top floor to view the fireworks? We do not have park tickets that day. Any other restaurants or spots we can see them?

    Hiya Jaime! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth is just mere days away! How exciting! I see that you've already heard the great news about the return of some of the beloved Nighttime Spectaculars. It makes my planning heart happy to see you gearing up for the Disneyland Forever Fireworks. You will be amongst the first viewers of the show's return.. and that itself is just magical! 

    I just spoke with a Cast Member over at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel and unfortunately, Guests are currently unable to visit the rooftop for fireworks viewing while the construction is underway. However, my fellow panelist, Carrie, shared that a great spot to see the fireworks without a park ticket is the Disneyland Esplanade. This is the area in between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Many Guests will huddle around for the show in the sky, so be sure to arrive a few minutes early to find the best view.

    Jaime, you may consider spending some time in the Downtown Disney District leading up to the fireworks show. You can shop, dine and grab a sweet treat to snack on when the show begins. I am usually so excited to arrive at the Happiest Place on Earth that I like to spend some time shopping for souveniers on my first day. World of Disney® is a can't miss shopping spot. They can make all your shopping wishes come true with an excellent selection of apparel, toys, jewelry, ears and more!

    I'm sorry to report the rooftop news, Jaime, but I do hope this alternate location is a good option for your family!

    Have a magical day,
