    My friend and I are both over 55 and coming to WDW from December 6th thru 8th and staying at the Coronado Resort. Where is the best spot to see the night fireworks/light shows at Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Pam!

    There is nothing better to round out a pixie-dusted day than to enjoy one of Walt Disney World's nighttime spectaculars! Well planned!

    You'll be in WDW in time to catch Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! at Disney's Hollywood Studios. For the best view of these spectacular projections, stand as close to center of Animation Courtyard as you can. With a view of The Great Movie Ride directly in front of you, you'll be able to catch every magical scene. Consider booking the Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam! Holiday Party for a great view while enjoying delicious desserts, too.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Park at Night is another wonderful close of a magical day. Once the sun goes down, you'll see taped-off areas for Tree of Life Awakenings; stand with The Oasis to your back, with a perfect view of the tree directly in front of you. When Rivers of Light is an option, you'll be able to enjoy an excellent view in the new seating areas tucked alongside Discovery River, right in front of both Expedition Everest and Finding Nemo-The Musical.

    For Epcot's IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, any view of the water will be perfect; however, I like to stand right at the end of the walkway from Future World to World Showcase. The paved areas that border World Showcase Lagoon offer the perfect view AND you'll be that much closer to park exit...and your resort bus...when it's time to go home.

    Send more questions as you plan, Pam; we love to help!
