    Where is the best viewing spot for the Happily Ever After fireworks show at MK?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Kristen and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. One of the best parts about a Disney trip is the surprise at the end of the day. For young Mouseketeers it could be a visit with their favorite Disney character, for an adult it could be a beverage or dessert at a relaxing restaurant but for me, it is the thrill of the sorcery in the sky over Cinderella Castle.

    Happily Ever After brought tears to my eyes the first time I saw the perfect choreography of pyrotechnics and castle projections. I saw it from the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. adjacent to the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and this was the perfect location because there was no obstruction of trees. In addition, the castle projections were straight ahead and the fireworks erupted in symmetry over Cinderella Castle. This is my favorite spot if I am not doing the Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing.

    Disney Dad Tip: I choose the Plaza Garden view dessert party, which is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, because it is similar to the Main Street, U.S.A. view but closer and with delicious treats including chocolate-dipped strawberries, toffee cake, and a s’mores station. Before eating, make sure to toast sparkling cider with your group and after eating, enjoy a spacious place in the Plaza Garden to view the magic. I love this party.

    Kristen, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
