    Where is the best place to set up a camera in order to take pictures of the fireworks at Magic Kingdom?


    The Wishes Fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom was designed to be viewed from the park entrance, looking down Main Street toward Cinderella Castle. That gives you a few choices. Starting from furthest way to closest, here are a few suggestions;

    Beach and grounds at Polynesian Resort. Sitting on the beach at this resort, facing the Magic Kingdom, you are at a perfect viewing angle to how it was designed to be seen. Consider it a center seat in the balcony of a movie theater. The beach and palm trees can be used as a unique frame to your photos.

    Town Square in Main Street USA. Look at the railroad station as a way to get centered and elevated at the same time. Just make sure you can get a good view around the trees.

    Central Plaza in front of Cinderella Castle Larger crowds can make getting the masses out of your photo a bit hard, but this is the best way to get castle shots silhouetted by the fireworks. The best vantage point there may well be by the plaza statue with the statue immediately behind you.

    I hope that this helps?

    Have a magical vacation!
