    Which Magic Kingdom fireworks show is the best and is there a way to see both? We are going July 22 and I see that Wishes is at 10 and Celebrate at 10:35.

    Hi Nancy!

    I absolutely love watching the fireworks at Magic Kingdom. There is nothing like seeing the beautiful display of fireworks sparkle over Cinderella Castle while set to Disney music. 

    The Wishes fireworks show is absolutely amazing. When I hear "star light, star bright" I get chill bumps all over, as it is the soundtrack to pure joy with my family. You can see Tinker Bell take flight over Cinderella Castle, which is especially spectacular to view from above while standing on the balcony of California Grill.

    Wishes occurs nightly at 10:00 p.m. and is the only fireworks show, unless there is a special event that night. There was a special Fourth of July fireworks show "Disney Celebrates America", but that won't occur on July 22. 

    There is also the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade at Magic Kingdom, but that occurs at 3:00 p.m. Therefore, I'm not aware of another fireworks show at Magic Kingdom at 10:35 p.m. on July 22, but I'm sure you will be extremely happy with the Wishes fireworks show at 10:00 p.m.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
