    This will be my very first time at Disneyland and I’m on the short side, so I’m worried I won’t be able to see the nightly fireworks with the castle in view as well as Fantasmic. Is there an area that would be best for viewing for us short people? :)

    Welcome to planDisney, Kevin!

    I’m so glad you found us here as you get your Donald Ducks in a row for your very first visit to The Happiest Place On Earth this fall. How exciting! My pals, Panelists Tishra B. and Al C. filmed a delightful podcast for first-timers, and I’ll make sure to link it for you below!

    When it comes to watching the nighttime spectaculars, I have a few favorite spots that I think you’ll love. My overall favorite is right in front of ‘it’s a small world.’ The way the light projections from the show dance across the iconic façade is simply magical. Plus, this area tends to be less crowded since it’s a bit of a hidden gem that most guests aren’t aware of. Let’s keep that our little secret, okay Kevin?? As a mom to a toddler and an infant, I especially love this spot because the fireworks are a bit more muted here, making it a gentler experience.

    Another awesome spot for catching the nighttime spectaculars is along the Rivers of America. It’s usually quieter and more peaceful here, with fewer crowds. Plus, you get to see the stunning light projections on magical walls of water, which is just breathtaking.

    I hope this information helps, Kevin! If you have more questions, feel free to reach out again. I'm here to drop my best tips to make your visit to The Happiest Place On Earth as magical as can be!
