    Where is best place to watch the fireworks

    Hi Jane! 

    There are a few terrific places to view Wishes, the fireworks show at Magic Kingdom, that are a less crowded and offer spectacular views.

    My absolute favorite place to watch Wishes is at California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort, from the balcony. You can watch Wishes from above and even see Tinker Bell fly down from Cinderella Castle. Make an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) for an hour prior to the show and you can eat dinner and then go out on the balcony afterwards to watch the fireworks.

    I also love to watch Wishes from the beach at Disney's Polynesian Resort. You can make an ADR at 'Ohana and then go out on the beach after dinner. 

    When you are in Magic Kingdom, you can get a spectacular view of Wishes from Main Street, although it gets crowded quickly. You can snag a spot a couple of hours in advance and then view the fireworks sparkling above Cinderella Castle.

    No matter where you view the fireworks, you can be assured they are magical!
