    Hi where is the best place to watch Happily Ever After?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jeremy!

    In my opinion, there is no better way to end a day at Magic Kingdom Park than by taking in a showing of Happily Ever After. There is something so magical about the fireworks and illuminations combined with the Disney music we all love. There are lots of great places to watch the show from but I do have a few favorite spots that I'm happy to share with you.

    My favorite place to watch Happily Ever After is at the end of Main Street U.S.A. near Casey's Corner or the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. I think this space gives one of the best views of Cinderella Castle so you can see the projection show clearly while still getting a great vantage point for the fireworks. This spot is pretty popular, so you'll want to get here an hour or more before the start of the show. If you don't want to wait that long, I usually like to snag a spot off to the side by the Tomorrowland Bridge. When it comes to watching Happily Ever After, I think that further back down Main Street U.S.A. is a better view than being up front close to Cinderella Castle, because you get the full view of both the fireworks and the illuminations.

    If a premium spot for the show is really important for you and your family, I recommend getting tickets to the Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing. You'll be treated to a buffet of delicious snacks and desserts before being escorted to a special VIP viewing area for Happily Ever After. I take back what I said earlier, THIS is the perfect way to end a night at Magic Kingdom Park!

    Have a magical day, Jeremy!
