    is there special places to watch fireworks for people in wheelchairs in all 4 parks

    Hi Dale!  There are indeed special locations in each park to view the fireworks and parades.

    You can see the Wishes show in the Magic Kingdom from just about any location in the park and a special spot is not really necessary since everything is above you. However, for the parades you will want to hunt down the locations. These would be in the Town Square on Main Street, on the Tomorrowland side of the Partners Statue near Cinderella Castle, and across for the Liberty Tree Tavern in Liberty Square. Talk with a cast member to allow access. These locations may change from time to time so you can always check with Guest Services during the day.

    In Epcot you viewing areas for wheelchairs include in front of the two large shops as you enter the World Showcase circle, in front of Canada, and in front of Italy.  These fill up quickly so get there anywhere from 30-45 minutes before Illuminations.

    At Hollywood Studios you can find a limited number of wheel chair locations for Fantasmic.  As you enter ask a cast member to direct you to their location. There are a few in the front row and they normally direct you to the back so just ask if that is possible.

    Animal Kingdom does not have a fireworks show.

    After each show the crowds are thick and it is in your best interest if you wait just a few minutes to let the throngs of people clear out enough so you can safely navigate your way out of the shows.
