    Where is the best place to watch the fireworks from outside the parks? Thank you for your help.

    Hi Marianne,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I love capping off a day at Magic Kingdom watching Happily Ever After. The show is simply spectacular. My favorite viewing spots are the hub in front of Cinderella Castle and just behind Cinderella Castle near Prince Charming Regal Carrousel.

    There are many nights at Walt Disney World, though, when we're not visiting Magic Kingdom and still want to enjoy fireworks. Viewing fireworks from the beach at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is fun because you can enjoy dinner at the resort, relax on the beach and take in the full sky view of the fireworks above Seven Seas Lagoon.

    We also really enjoy dining at California Grill — it's my favorite restaurant — and the observation deck is a prime viewing location. The Sky Way Bridge connecting Disney's Contemporary Resort with Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is another nice spot. I'll also add here that one of the reasons I really love our Disney Vacation Club Home Resort at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is for the Top of the World Lounge and the amazing view it offers of Magic Kingdom fireworks.

    Another option is the Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise. Who doesn't love sparkle — served in the sky or served with dessert?

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
