    Dear Moms, I'd like to get a great spot for the Symphony in the Stars Fireworks on my WDW vacation, but also avoid standing inside a large crowd. If I'm standing outside between the main entrance and the opposing lake, will I be able to hear the

    Greetings, Jedi Knight Florian!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Bothan Spies have infiltrated Disney's Hollywood Studios and have brought back valuable information to answer your question. Being part of the Resistance myself, I concur that this information is correct.

    They report:

    "Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular fireworks showcase is out-of-this-world fantastic. Star Wars music accompanying multi-colored fireworks change to reflect both the Light and Dark Sides of the Force. As the sky is illuminated, sound clips from the Star Wars Saga guide you along the epic journey. The ideal place to both see and hear the show is along Hollywood Boulevard. The fireworks will span the horizon above The Great Movie Ride.

    To avoid large crowds, you may have a great view of the show from outside the main entrance. Just back up to the gate that surrounds the channel that carries Guests by boat to the Epcot Resort Area hotels. You will be able to hear the music but it will be faint compared to being inside the theme park.

    Another location is from the Luna Park Pool at Disney's BoardWalk Inn. The music will be very faint but the fireworks will be very visible."

    Jedi Knight Florian, May the Force Be With You and enjoy making many Magical Memories!
