    We're heading to Disney World in early November, and would love to see the fireworks show one night. However, my son's in a wheelchair, and the last time we went to Disney there were no handicapped viewing spaces available anywhere. Any ideas?

    Hi Chant!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for visiting us and submitting this excellent question. My family and I love visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the month of November. It's such a magical way to kick off the holiday season. Plus, the weather is usually cool enough to be comfortable walking around in jeans but not so cold that we're freezing.

    My Mouseketeer rolls his way through Walt Disney World Resort in a wheelchair, too! I'm so excited to share with you my son's favorite viewing area for the Happily Ever After fireworks show at Magic Kingdom Park. We've found that right outside the entrance to the Walt Disney World Railroad station on Main Street, U.S.A. is a great place to watch the fireworks above Cinderella Castle. This station happens to be elevated, allowing your son to have a bird's eye view down Main Street, U.S.A. as well as a fantastic view of the fireworks because he can sit right up to the railing without someone tall in front of him! One thing I do want to mention is that Happily Ever After has beautiful projections on Cinderella Castle during the show and your son might have difficulty seeing the details of them from farther away. Also, this is an extremely popular viewing spot so I recommend arriving well in advance before the start of the show.

    Another idea is to book reservations for the Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing at Tomorrowland Terrace. You and your family will not only be guaranteed a prime viewing location but delicious desserts, too!

    Chant, I hope I was able to give you a couple good places for your son to view the fireworks this upcoming November.
