    I have a conundrum. I love fireworks and my 13 year old daughter is terrified of them. Any ideas on how I can see the fireworks at each of the 3 parks while keeping her calm. Is there somewhere inside for her to be out of earshot during the shows.

    Hello Theresa,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I understand this conundrum all too well. My youngest daughter has Sensory issues and has difficulty with the loud noise from the Fireworks shows too. We always bring along a set of noise-canceling headphones and they have worked wonderfully in blocking out the loud blasts and crowd noise. There are many different affordable options; we currently have headphones from both Sony and Peltor.

    That said, there are plenty of spots to view the Fireworks where it is not quite so loud, and both you and your daughter can enjoy them. You can view Wishes nighttime spectacular fireworks show outside of Magic Kingdom Park. The beach area at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and the Marina at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, both offer an absolutely breathtaking view of the fireworks show! You can also view them from California Grill in Disney's Contemporary Resort however, you will need an Advanced Dining Reservation later in the evening to be able to view them from the Restaurant. 

    You can head over to Disney's Beach Club Resort and view IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth on the bridge just before the International Gateway entrance to Epcot. To view  “Symphony In The Stars: A Galactic Spectacular” fireworks show in Disney's Hollywood Studios I recommend heading to Disney's BoardWalk Inn and taking a seat by Luna Park Pool. 

    I hope these suggestions help. Please stop back by should you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Magical Wishes,
