    We have a 2 day Disney Vacay this year. The day we spend in MK will be spectacular, however, we have an early flight the next morning. What are the best spots to view HEA fireworks from outside the park to get a quick jump on getting back to offsite hotel?

    Hi Erik,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It's awesome to hear you're already feeling your spectacular Magic Kingdom day. Personally, I think you're spot-on. A day in Magic Kingdom is always spectacular. I also think it's awesome that you're thinking on how best to take in all that's Happily Ever After. Who among us doesn't want to boldly pursue our heart's desire?

    While you don't mention the spot from which you're making your quick jump back to your hotel, I'll offer a few suggestions. I have two favorite spots outside Magic Kingdom where I like to enjoy the Happily Ever After fireworks. One favorite spot is on the beach at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Seeing the Happily Ever After show fill the whole sky is really amazing, and it's a perspective one can only fully appreciate from a distance. Did you know, though, that you can walk a path from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort to the Transportation and Ticket Center? My second favorite spot for taking in Happily Ever After outside Magic Kingdom is along the Skyway Bridge that connects Disney's Contemporary Resort with Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. The Resort Monorail inside Disney's Contemporary Resort can transport you to the Transportation and Ticket Center.

    So your journey after Magic Kingdom will continue on, Erik. Now go, let your dreams guide you. Reach out and find your happily ever after.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
