    Hi -Like everyone I would like to watch the Wishes fireworks from somewhere not as crowded but I am concerned that my 4 year old will miss tinkerbell. Do you have to be in front of the castle to see her fly in or can you be elsewhere -like the polly beach

    Hi Julie!

    I've watched the Wishes fireworks from the Magic Kingdom, the Grand Floridian, the Contemporary, and the Polynesian.  All are great places for watching the fireworks and they all provide a unique perspective.  However, if you want to see Tinker Bell, you have to be in the Magic Kingdom.  She is really just too small to be seen from anywhere else.

    Main Street USA and the Castle hub are great places to watch Wishes, but if you are looking for a less crowded place that still allows you to see Tinker Bell fly, then I suggest watching Wishes from the Plaza Rose Garden.  The Rose Garden is between Cinderella Castle and the entrance to Tomorrowland.  There's a winding pathway and at the end of the pathway is a covered area with benches.  There will be guests there, but I think it is much less crowded there than at other places with a good view of Tinker Bell.  Another option is the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station.  If the Magic Kingdom is offering a Wishes Dessert Party the night you visit, it's a great place to watch the fireworks and the desserts are tasty!  If a Wishes Dessert Party is not being offered, then anybody can watch from the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station.

    Have a magical vacation!
