    DD4 does not like the loud noises of fireworks. Is there a place that we can see them but at the same time where it will be enjoyable for her. 1st time visitors. Are there any other events/attractions that I need to be prepared for. Thanks!!!!

    Hi Pamela!

    Congratulations on your daughter's first visit to Walt Disney World!
    She's at such a perfect age to enjoy all the Magic!

    My favourite place from which to watch the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular fireworks, without the noise level, is from the beach at Disney's Polynesian Resort. This may be a perfect option for you to allow your Little Princess to enjoy the magic of Wishes without worrying about her becoming upset over the loudness.

    Consider spending the day at Magic Kingdom and enjoy the attractions, afternoon parade and show and then head out by boat or monorail for dinner at the nearby Polynesian. Consider making a reservation at 'Ohana or Kona Cafe for dinner about 90-120 min before the fireworks time for that evening. 'Ohana is my family's favourite dinner spot in all of Walt Disney World!

    Once you've eaten, enjoy the shops and gallery on site or stroll the lush, tropical gardens before heading to the beach. Find a spot with a great view of Cinderella Castle, glowing over the treetops across the water. If you're there early enough, you may even get to also enjoy the Electric Water Pageant as it passes by the Polynesian Beach as it makes its rounds around Seven Seas Lagoon. Ask a Cast Member what time the pageant is due to pass the beach on that particular evening.

    You should be aware that at the end of the daytime stage shows in front of Cinderella Castle, one burst of fireworks are launched on either side of the castle. It's not a particularly loud burst, but it may catch your Princess off-guard if she's not expecting it. Make sure to let her know that some pretty, white 'pops' are going to burst to celebrate another great show.

    I hope these tips help you out!
    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Pamela!
