    Hello this will be mine and my family's first trip to Disney and I was wondering where is the best place we can watch the fireworks and have a great seat? Sadly I can not get reservations to the dessert party on any of the days I will be there :(

    Hi Heather,
    The Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at the Magic Kingdom is one of my favorite parts of my trips to the Walt Disney World Resort. The great thing about the fireworks display is that it is visible from nearly all outdoor areas of the park. A standing spot on Main Street USA is a great vantage point (the fireworks are high in the sky, so everyone can see) but if you prefer to be seated, I would suggest two places with open seating. Be advised, these are first come, first served and you might want to claim your space several hours in advance to ensure that you secure the spot you want. First, the Walt Disney World Railroad has some balcony seating at the far end of Main Street USA. It's a beautiful vantage point, as you have to opportunity to see all of Main Street and Cinderella's Castle while watching Wishes. Second, there is very limited seating at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, which is at the end of Main Street on the right hand side if you are facing Cinderella's Castle.

    Heather, I hope you and your family have a great time!!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
