    I've read that it's difficult to get out of the parks after the fireworks due to crowds. Any suggestions on good viewing spots that also allow the easiest departures from MK and Epcot? Any tips would be great! Thanks!

    Hi Shelly!

         Yes, it can get quite crowded at the end of Wishes and Illuminations: Reflections of Earth with guests all trying to leave the Park.  The best spots that I have discovered for a quick getaway after fireworks are:

    Magic Kingdom

    1. The second floor of the Walt Disney World Railroad Station (walk down the stairs after Wishes is done and you are out of the park)

    2. Main Street USA right in front of the flag pole between City Hall and The Town Square Theater (this offers a quick exit out of the Magic Kingdom


    1.  Near the Mexico Pavilion toward the two stores in the center of World Showcase Lagoon (offers a great view of Illuminations and a quick exit to the front gates of Epcot)

    2.  At the Canada Pavilion on the steps leading up to the pavilion or on the bridge between the Canada Pavilion and the United Kingdom Pavilion (this is another way to exit quickly through Future World after Illuminations is done)

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is filled with magic and memories!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
