    Where is the best place to see the fireworks in the distance if your 6 yr old child id afraid of them up close?

    Hi Joann!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You will love Happily Ever After - the fireworks display at the Magic Kingdom Park.  The show also includes some amazing projections onto Cinderella Castle, which are best viewed from within the park, but the spectacular fireworks can be seen from several nearby spots around Seven Seas Lagoon.  I would make a dining reservation - for a couple of hours earlier - and then view the show afterwards.   At Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, I would choose Narcoossee's - a favourite lakeside spot of mine, with a viewing deck just outside.  Younger guests might prefer Grand Floridian Cafe, or character dining at Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare, and then take a walk along the beach area to watch the fireworks.  California Grill on the 15th floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort has its own observation deck outside, but another great spot is from the beach, at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, after dining at 'Ohana or Kona Cafe.

    Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, online, or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.  The show time for your arrival date is currently 9.00pm, but please note that times are subject to change. You can see all the latest times on the calendar.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
