    While at the Magic Kingdom, if my family does not want to watch the WISHES fireworks, where is an uncrowded part of the park to enjoy the rides ?

    Hi Louann!
    I would have to say most of it. On nights when Wishes is performed, people begin staking out prime viewing spots up to an hour or more in advance. There is a noticeable decline in ride wait times and general traffic leading up to and during Wishes. I would, however, choose a side of the Magic Kingdom that I want to be on before the show starts. For example, do you want to hit Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin in Tomorrowland, or do you want to ride Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain over in Frontierland. Fantasyland gets quiet pretty quickly, too.To maximize rides while the waits are short, choose which ones are most important to you and your family and go for it! That said, if you have never seen Wishes, it is incredible and worth viewing at least once. Enjoy your trip!
