    Hi,Im trying to get a FP for MK fireworks in April. None are listed does that mean they are all gone or is there another way to book the FP? Also I read about an entrance for those who have park hoppers to avoid waiting in line a second time?

    Hi Janice! April is almost here and so is your vacation. It will be a busy month but also a fun month with Easter decorations around in the parks and the resorts. It is a great way to welcome spring once again.

    The Wishes Fireworks are certainly something everyone should see at least once during their stay. I don't think anyone can beat Disney for their magical night time shows and fireworks displays.  Coming later this spring they will introduce a new show in the Magic Kingdom and none of us know how they can beat Wishes.

    Getting a FastPass to a parade or Fireworks in the Magic Kingdom is no longer available. They did not announce the specific reason for taking these off the FastPass choice page but since they have developed the hub area in front of the castle the crowds have had a larger space to stand and watch. Because of this I was always suggesting to guests not to use one of the precious FastPasses for the parades since you only get to make an initial three choices. You can watch the fireworks from many locations in the parks as well and some guests enjoy the views from Tomorrowland while others love to view behind the castle.

    Disney is also now in test mode with a new option for transportation between parks called Express Transportation. This allows guests with Annual Passes or Park Hopper tickets to pay a small fee that will enable them to hop on a bus backstage in a park and be delivered to another park backstage. Guests will not have to pass through security again making it a time saver if you are wanting to get a lot done in one day in many parks. You also have the option to buy a seven day pass so you can use it every day of your stay.
