    what are the best places in the magic kingdom to view "wishes"

    Hi Kimberly!

    Wishes can be viewed from throughout the Magic Kingdom.  However, there are some elements of the show that are symmetrical with respect to the castle and thus it is best watched from somewhere in front of the castle.  However, it can be very crowded right in front of the castle and all along Main Street USA.  If you don't mind the crowds, then definitely head there.  My favorite spot is in the middle of Main Street at the end about 20 feet from Casey's Corner and before you reach the castle hub.  If crowds are not your thing, then I would suggest watching the fireworks from Frontierland or Liberty Square.  If you really want to get away from the crowds, a good place to watch them is from the beach at the Polynesian Resort. 

    By the way, if your budget allows, you should definitely consider a Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage.  There is nothing like watching the fireworks from a boat in the Seven Seas Lagoon.  You will have a great view, can hear the soundtrack, and won't have to fight any crowds!

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
