    Can someone tell me how fireworks work? It appear that they happen after the park closes so I am not sure where you would go to view fireworks.

    There is no better way to conclude your day than by enjoying the fireworks at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Nichole, I love how you are planning virtually every aspect of your 1st trip to Walt Disney World Resort. You are adding so much pixie dust to your magical vacation and everyone at the Disney Parks Moms Panel appreciates you sharing your questions with us. Thank you so much!

    There are numerous areas from which to view the fireworks and several are inside the theme park. I will use Magic Kingdom as my example but there are similarities with the other theme parks as well.

    You will find the majority of Guests watching the Happily Ever After fireworks display from Main Street, U.S.A or by Cinderella Castle. Once the fireworks conclude, Guests will make their way to the theme park exit. On one of our most memorable vacations, my family and I were on Dumbo the Flying Elephant during the fireworks. There is no other way to describe it other than magical.

    If you are looking for other ways to enhance your viewing experience, there are countless ways to watch the fireworks. Pirates & Pals Fireworks Dessert Voyage sets sail on the Seven Seas Lagoon following a feast of tasty treats at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Another great cruise option is the Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise. California Grill is another great option following a savory meal. Inside the theme park, you will also find great dessert parties. 

    Regardless of where you decide to watch the fireworks, enjoy the amazing display! It's the perfect ending to a magical day!
