    Hello Kirsten. On one of our evening's I would like to bring the kids to downtown disney or the boardwalk area for a late dinner... will we be able to see the wishes fireworks show from either of these locations? Is one better than the other for this? Thx

    Hi Faye!

    It's nice to hear from you again! Thanks for choosing to visit me again.
    Downtown Disney and Disney's BoardWalk areas are fantastic places to spend an evening with your kids.

    You won't be able to see Wishes fireworks from either of these locations. Wishes is best viewed from inside Magic Kingdom Park on a day you're planning to spend there, or, from the beach of the nearby Grand Floridian or Polynesian Resorts if you should happen to arrange dinner reservations there.

    I'd highly recommend that you consider spending time on Disney's BoardWalk for dinner (or following dinner) during a day spent at Epcot Park. You'll enjoy enough time to walk to and stroll around the area and still pop back inside Epcot's International Gateway in time to view their nighttime show - IllumiNations.

    Downtown Disney is one of my favourite places to spend an evening. Consider visiting following a day spent at Animal Kingdom since the park closes earlier than other locations around 'the world.' There are many choices for dining, outdoor entertainment, shopping, and even the exciting Characters In Flight tethered balloon for a view of Walt Disney World like you've never experienced before!

    If you'd like recommendations for dining options in any of these areas, please don't hesitate to ask.
    I hope to hear from you again soon Faye!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
