    We will be staying at the Coronado Springs next month and we are wondering if we could see the Wishes fire works from any location on the resort.

    Hi, Lisa! Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is my favorite Moderate Walt Disney World Resort hotel. I stayed there twice last year and you would have loved my view one evening!

    On that evening, my daughter and I were headed for a quick swim before bed. While crossing the bridge that connects El Centro (the main building where you will find the Check-In desk, Concierge, and dining locations) to the Dig Site pool complex, we were able to watch bits of the fireworks shows from two Disney Parks. The best ones we could see from that vantage point came from Disney's Hollywood Studios. We were also able to see some of the higher shots from Epcot's IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. This was not a perfectly ideal place to view the fireworks, as we could not see the lower features of the shows, nor could we hear the music that makes these fireworks shows spectacular. But, it was a great pixie-dusted way to end our evening. I did look for Wishes nighttime spectacular while in the area. I noticed some bright spots in the sky in the direction of Magic Kingdom Park, but it was nowhere near the better view we had of the fireworks being blasted from Disney's Hollywood Studios. If you would like to enjoy a unique view of Wishes nighttime spectacular, I highly recommend you look into Ferrytale Wishes: A Fireworks Dessert Cruise or the ever-fun Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage.

    I hope you enjoy your stay at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Lisa! Please let us know if you have any further questions!
