    My family of three is heading to Walt Disney World in November and we can't wait! We're staying at the Polynesian for the first time. Will we be able to view the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the beach at the Poly? Thanks!

    Hi Marla!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is my absolute favorite resort at Walt Disney World!  I love everything about it, from the location to the theming to the dining options - you name it!  As an added bonus, the beach at the Polynesian is a fantastic viewing spot for the Wishes nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom.  You'll have a clear, unobstructed view of the fireworks if you head behind the Great Ceremonial House.  The experience is made even better by the fact that the music is played over speakers on the beach, so you'll get the full experience (without the crowds).  

    If you're heading to the beach for Wishes, you might also make time in your schedule for the nightly Electrical Water Pageant, which parades by nightly along Seven Seas Lagoon.

    Wishing you pixie-dusted planning and a most magical vacation, Marla!  Please let us know if you have other questions as you make your plans.
