    We're headed to Disney in two weeks with my 4 year old daughter and almost two year old son! What is the best location for viewing the fireworks show that won't be too crowded, but will still offer a good view for the show? Thanks in advance!

    Hi, there!

     Raven, it is my pleasure to answer another question about your upcoming visit to Magic Kingdom Park. Happily Ever After is my favorite nighttime spectacular at Walt Disney World Resort. I get goosebumps every time I hear the music begin! I think you and your little ones will really enjoy it. 

     Since projection is a key component of Happily Ever After, the best location for a prime view of Cinderella Castle is on Main Street, U.S.A., between Casey's Corner and the statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse. Unfortunately, this will likely be a crowded space. If you want to sacrifice personal space for view, arrive to that area 30-45 minutes before the show begins. 

     If space is more of a priority for you, I suggest standing on Main Street, U.S.A., between Main Street Confectionary and the Emporium. This location is convenient because of its proximity to the park entrance. When our boys were 2 and 4-years old we often stood in this spot because we could exit quickly after the fireworks had ended. 

     Raven, are you familiar with the Happily Ever After dessert parties? Making a reservation for either the Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing or the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace will guarantee you and your family prime, uncrowded viewing of the fireworks show. As an added bonus, you can enjoy a buffet of delicious treats and beverages. What a "sweet" way to end a magical day at Magic Kingdom Park!

     Thanks for stopping by!
