    Hi guys! Love the Panel! I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for fireworks viewing in the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. Thanks for you help!

    Hi Lindsay,

    I'm thrilled to hear you love the Moms Panel!  Don't you just love the fireworks?! I get teary every single time! You can view the fireworks at Magic Kingdom throughout the park but I think the view is best from the Main Street side of Cinderella Castle.  My favorite spot is in the Rose Garden because Tinker Bell flies right over your head from the castle to Tomorrowland. There also isn't as many people traveling through it during the fireworks and it allows for a little more elbow room. 

    Illuminations at EPCOT can be viewed anywhere in the World Showcase that offers a clear view of the lagoon.  My favorite spot is at the Rose & Crown Pub in the United Kingdom Pavillion.  Before you select a location, check to see which direction the wind is blowing and sit opposite of it so that the smoke from the fireworks blows away from you.

    Whatever location you choose for either park, make sure you arrive super early and plan to stick it out.  A lot of people plan their whole evening around the fireworks and will often claim their spot well over an hour in advance.  If the parade is being held prior to the fireworks at MK, you'll want to plan accordingly as many people won't leave after the parade and will sit at the same place for both.

    Please let us know if you have more questions. It is an honor for us to assist you in planning your trip!
    Wishing you many magical memories!
