    If you were to choose a spot in MK to watch fireworks for the best view, where would it be? I want good photos. Last year we stood at the Walt statue in front of the castle. Is there a better place? Thanks!

    Hi Angela,

    How lucky for you to have stood by Walt's statue for the fireworks; that is a wonderful spot to watch Wishes.  We never even try for that premium spot since we usually are walking up to watch the fireworks within a few minutes of their beginning. 

    Our favorite spot is under Tink's wire on the bridge that connects the hub area in front of the castle Tomorrowland.  My sons love looking up at Tinkerbell as she flies overhead.  If you are unsure about this, during the day look up at the castle.  You should be able to see the wire that runs from one of high spots of the castle to the buildings on Main Street. 

    I'm also partial to watching Wishes from the beach at the Polynesian resort.  We've often been alone as a family with a grand view of all of the Magic Kingdom and the fireworks.  Following the show, the electric water parade starts up which is always fun to watch, too.
