    I have a million questions, but to start off, where are the best places to view Wishes fireworks and Fantasmic! ?? We will be inside the parks for both events. Also, where is the best place to view the Electrical Water Pagaent? Thanks for your answers!

    Hello, Shannon!

    These questions are a great place to start!

    First, for Wishes, consider what your next step will be when the show is over. (Exiting the park? Be closer to the exit, right in front of the Main Street, U.S.A. train station, for example. Staying for Extra Magic Hours? Try the tables in front of Casey's Corner on Main Street, U.S.A.)

    For Fantasmic! we always  either arrive an hour prior to the show or book a Fantasmic! Dining Experience at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, which will give you access to VIP seating at that night's performance (you'll still have to arrive early, but you'll have great seats, not far from the front row.)

    Depending on where you're staying, you can view the Electric Water Pageant from a variety of locations. We most recently enjoyed a great view of the Electric Water Pageant from our room at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  However, we've also watched them from the beach at Disney's Polynesian Resort, as well from our Lagoon View room.  Basically, if you can get yourself to any waterfront location surrounding Bay Lake, you'll be able to see it. Times will vary, though, from property to property, so decide the place from which you'd like to view it (based on home resort or a dinner reservation, perhaps?) and then either call the location from which you'd like to see it or send me another question with the location in mind and I'll let you know the details!

    No matter what, when I hear "Fireworks" from Disney's The Little Mermaid soundtrack,  I feel the need to race toward a lagoon-side viewing location (even if I'm in my land-locked classroom!) It's just another example of that extra Disney magic that's out there, if you know where to look for it!

    Please send additional questions as you think of them; I'd love to help!
