    Hi, I am coming to Walt Disney World is September with 5 year old daughter. Where would you recommend us to go to see the fireworks, without pushing and shoving

    Hi Susan,

    One of my favorite places to watch the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom is from the train station balcony, right near the park entrance. Just after you enter the park, you'll see a set of stairs that lead up to the train station platform. There is a small seating area there where you can look down the street toward the castle.

    I like watching the fireworks there for several reasons. You can see entire vista of Main Street. You're near the exit, so it's easy to leave the park quickly when the fireworks are over. And it's also away and a bit protected from other guests. There are usually only a few dozen guests up there, as opposed to the many hundreds who are down below. If you get there early enough, you may even be able to have a real chair to sit on for performance, rather than having to stand or sit on the ground.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
