    Hello, i am a magic key holder and i am recently enrolled in the DAS program, i will be going on June 16th i will at the parks. My question is i have seen reserved areas in front of the Castle to watch the fireworks. I will be with little ones that day.

    Hi there, Zachary,

    Thanks for the chance to share some advice and support for your upcoming visit to the Disneyland Resort. I'm sure you are excited to experience all the wonder of "the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy."

    My family and I feel grateful for the ways that the Disneyland Resort helps to accommodate Guests with disabilities. The services and support, including the Disability Access Service help to make the experience as smooth and magical as possible for those with special needs. We love the way that it allows our party to have full control over our experience with booking and experiencing attractions with the return time self-selection tool in the Disneyland mobile app.

    Guests who have a difficult time tolerating longer waits in a traditional queue may use the Disability Access Service (DAS) to book return times at participating attractions. As an accommodation for queue-related needs, DAS focuses on Guest needs at participating attractions. Although DAS does not provide accommodations for nighttime spectaculars and other entertainment, I have some recommendations to share with you for those types of experiences.

    • Guests participating in Disneyland Resort VIP Tours have the option to request access to reserved viewing areas for participating entertainment offerings. This includes fireworks spectaculars, subject to availability.
    • Guests who purchase a Plaza Inn Dining Package have access to reserved viewing areas for designated entertainment. My family loved this experience with the Magic Happens parade. On select dates, such as July 4th, this experience may also be associated with fireworks viewing.
    • Another experience I highly recommend is the Celebrating Disney100 at the Disneyland Resort Guided Tour. This wonderful tour is worth it for the storytelling and history alone. And as a bonus, it includes reserved viewing for the Magic Happens parade among other goodies.
    • Guests of the Tomorrowland Skyline Terrace can enjoy spectacular sweeping views of Tomorrowland and beyond. Although it is not an advertised nor guaranteed component of the experience, on select nights, Guests of the Tomorrowland Skyline Terrace may even have a unique view of the fireworks spectacular.

    Tony's Tip: Some Guests like me can have a challenging time in heavier crowds. If seeking a fireworks viewing location at the popular hub location in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle feels intolerable, I recommend viewing the fireworks in front of "it's a small world" instead. That location offers an even more immersive experience with the higher-flying fireworks. And the projections on the "it's a small world" façade for select shows are incredibly vibrant and engaging.

    I hope you and your little ones have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort, Zachary. As a Magic Key holder, I hope you have the opportunity to return many times to The Happiest Place on Earth. And should you have any more questions along your Magic Key holder journey, I hope you will visit us at planDisney again.
