    Arriving Oct 3 and heading to Hoop de do Review at 6:15p. Park hopper begins Oct 4th. Any place (outside parks) we can catch a Firework show after dinner? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Jennifer!

    Since Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, home of the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue, is so close to the Magic Kingdom, you should be able to top off the night by catching Wishes from a nearby resort.

    While some of the higher fireworks can actually be seen from Ft. Wilderness, your best bet will be to travel to either the Contemporary or Polynesian to get a better view of the fireworks.

    The Contemporary can be reached by boat from Ft. Wilderness. There is a balcony with a great view of Wishes on the 4th Floor of the resort. You'll want to head down to the end of the building past the gift shops, and outside onto the balcony.

    Personally, I love to watch Wishes! from the Polynesian beach, but it is slightly harder to get to from Hoop Dee Doo. To get there, I'd suggest the boat to the Contemporary and then use the monorail to head to the Polynesian. The Wishes music is played on the beach while you enjoy a spectacular view of the fireworks. It is truly a magical way to top off a night.

    Either way, you really can't go wrong! It will be a wonderful way to end the day.
