    Hello, we planned a last minute first time trip to Disney and I was just wondering where is the best place to view the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom? We have a preferred viewing voucher, but it's all booked up! Thanks!!

    A last-minute trip is always fun because you don't have to spend weeks or months anticipating!  Our family has viewed the fireworks from many different locations at the Magic Kingdom-some planned, and some we just happened to be in when they started.  If you really want the best views, including seeing Tinkerbell "fly", I would suggest anywhere around the hub in front of Cinderella Castle-if you want to sit, whether on a bench or on the curb, you will need to arrive nice and early, possibly as much as one to two hours in advance depending on time of year and crowd levels.  However, if you don't mind standing, you can make your way over to that area 15 or 20 minutes in advance and still find a good spot.  Another great viewing area is on Main Street U.S.A., facing towards Cinderella Castle.  If you're looking for an area that may be a little quieter and less crowded, Frontierland across from Country Bear Jamboree also provides a great view, although you will not see Tinkerbell and may miss some of the lower fireworks in front of the Castle.  Enjoy your first visit and the fireworks- they are truly magical!
