    Hello! In your opinion, which is better: experience Wishes in MK or from view at California Grill? We are Mom, Dad & 7 yo daughter & 1st time Disney. Thank you!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Terry! 

    I'm so excited for you! Nothing beats the magic of your very first Walt Disney World® Resort vacation. The memories your little princess will forge during this trip will last a lifetime. 

    When it comes to viewing Wishes Nighttime Spectacular for the very first time, nothing will create that lasting impression more than seeing them in front of Cinderella Castle. I can see the look on your daughter's face now as Tinker Bell takes flight high above the Castle Forecourt as the crowd cheers in delight! That's definitely something that will be missed watching them from California Grill.

    There's also something magical about watching the Castle hub area and Main Street USA come back to life from the dimmed light that sets the stage for the nighttime shows.

    I hope this helps, Terry! And please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have as you continue planning and preparing for your first visit. Oh, and don't forget to ask for "1st Visit" buttons upon check-in if you're staying at a Walt Disney World® Resort Hotel. They are free and I'm sure your princess won't want to take it off the entire trip. Cast Members love recognizing first visit guests.

    Have a magical trip!
