    Dear Moms Panel, From readying previously posted ?s and answers it seems like a special place to view MK fireworks and electrical parade is from a waterfront location. Is it possible to gain access to the beach at the Polynesian Resort as a non-guest?

    Hi, Julie! Watching the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular (the Magic Kingdom fireworks) and the Electric Water Pageant from the shores of the Polynesian Resort is one of my family's traditions. Anyone can join in on the fun; you do not have to be a Guest of the Polynesian Resort to enjoy this experience.  When you get to the resort, just exit the rear of the Great Ceremonial House and grab a spot on the beach.  Look for a spot right in front of Cinderella's Castle (across the Seven Seas Lagoon, of course).  When the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular begins, the fireworks' soundtrack is piped in so that you can experience the total package.  You can also enjoy the Electric Water Pageant, a quaint little floating parade that takes place on the Seven Seas Lagoon.  Fourteen floats, accompanied by a great soundtrack, make their way to the Polynesian Resort, Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Wilderness Lodge, Fort Wilderness Campground, and the Contemporary Resort to be seen and loved by Guests.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
