    hi Moms! will be staying at WDW for the first time for 10 nights. like our arrival and departure days off from parks plus one day off during the week to do DD. 8 days at the parks, thinking of going to MK 3 days but how many times should we see wishes?

    Hi, Mandi!  Wow, what a nice vacation you have planned, and you should certainly be able to see nearly everything you want to see in that amount of time! 

    I could watch the Wishes Fireworks from the Magic Kingdom every night, I love it so much.  But, I think how many times you see it is going to depend on your family.  My husband, for example, loves to take the opportunity while Wishes is going on to hop into line for some of the most popular attractions.  We can usually squeeze in a last minute ride on Splash Mountain or Pirates of the Caribbean with less wait time while most of the theme park guests are enjoying the fireworks. 

    So, I'd say see them the first night, then play it by ear the other nights.  If it's something you love as much as I do and just don't want to miss, check it out again.  If you feel like you've seen it and want to pack in some fun somewhere else, then go that way.

    I hope your vacation is wonderful!
