    How early should I show up to Wishes viewing area. My MDE on my pc shows 10:50, but the fireworks are at 10pm that night?? When I go in further/as if changing the fp time, it shows arrive at 9:40. None of this seems right to me! Thanks for any tips.

    Hi Ann!  There obviously seems to be a glitch in the system at this time. If Wishes is at 10pm the evening you are there then you will want to get to the FastPass location about 15 minutes prior. I suggest more if you are using a FastPass for one of the parades as you still will want to get a good spot along the street. The fireworks are different as the show is up in the air so you are not vying for that curb side spot.

    It is great not to have to worry about the masses for the fireworks but I often suggest you not use one of the three Fastpasses you get for this event. Since the fireworks are over the castle they can be seen in many different locations around the park. I have found one of my favorite spots is over by Space Mountain. It is something to consider when planning your day in the park.
