    Hi where are the best locations to get a good viewing spot to see the fireworks show at Magic Kingdom and how early should I get there? Thank you

    Hi Bianca!

    Watching fantastic fireworks over Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom Park is a perfect ending to a magical day filled with pixie-dusted adventures at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Luckily, as long as you can see the front of Cinderella Castle, you should have a good view of the fireworks!  You can also check out some of the fireworks dessert party options!

    That being said, I have a few spots that are my personal favorites!  If you are interested in finding a place to sit to watch the fireworks, you will need to arrive early.  Because seating is limited, Guests looking for seating sometimes begin gathering an hour before the fireworks.  One of my favorite spots to sit is in the outdoor seating area outside of Casey's Corner!  If you get one of the tables closest to the fence, you will be able to watch the gorgeous fireworks while sitting and enjoying some scrumptious treats!

    If you are comfortable standing, I suggest trying to find a spot at least 20 minutes before the show begins.  I love standing and watching the fireworks from the "hub" near the statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse, because it is a very immersive experience.  If you want to be able to leave the parks after the fireworks, but before the majority of the crowds, I recommend finding a spot near the flagpole at the entrance to Main Street, U.S.A., where you will still get a great view, but you will also get a head start on exiting the park!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
