    We are considering Wishes Fireworks Cruise. I understand that it provides a good view of the Fireworks, but not sure if we would also see Tinkerbell when she flies from castle. Thanks!

    Hello Lynn,

    The Specialty Cruises at Walt Disney World are truly magical, especially the fireworks cruises.  It is a such a treat to have an unblocked view of the fireworks at Epcot or the Magic Kingdom. You will certainly feel like a Disney princess!  

    When watching the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from a distance, you can typically still see Tinkerbell, but she is more of a glowing light that slowly flies from the top of the castle. Also, the castle will go dark right before she begins flying, so I'd encourage you to continue looking straight ahead.  

    If you are curious what Tinkerbell looks like from a distance, I did a quick search on YouTube and found a few videos of the Wishes Fireworks Cruise where you could see for yourself.  Viewing the videos may help you to decide if the fireworks cruise is what you'd like to do.  

    Wishing you a pixie-dusted trip!   -Kara
