    I read that Ohana/Polynesian Resort is a good place to watch Wishes out of the park. Are there other locations for other park shows? I heard you can see Illuminations from Carribean Beach Resort although it doesn't sound like it's the best place to do so

    Hi, Melanie!

    Ah, an evening relaxing at the beach at the Polynesian watching Wishes!  This is just about the perfect way to spend an evening.  Toss in a Mickey Mouse ice cream bar and I might never leave. The views of Wishes! from here are amazing.

    The only other "million dollar views" of Wishes! would be from a boat cruise on the Seven Seas Lagoon or from a few locations at the Contemporary Resort.  Besides that, you may catch a few glimpses, but these are the best views from outside the Magic Kingdom.

    As far as other locations, you can catch some of the fireworks from Epcot from the Boardwalk area.  While it is nice, to really experience Illuminations you need to be in Epcot near World Showcase Lagoon. 

    To fully engage in any of the nighttime spectaculars, you will want to plan some evening hours in the park.  However, you can still see some magic in the sky as you wander around the magical world of Disney!
