    We are taking our girls to disneyland for the first time in just a couple of weeks! Our oldest is 10 years old and is legally blind. I want to make this experience as special as I can for her! Any tips on getting great seats for fireworks?

    Hi, Mary! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    The Disneyland Resort is dedicated to making sure every Guest has a wonderful and positive experience. You will want to check out the Services for Guests with Visual Disabilities page to see the accommodations available to your daughter. These include audio description devices and braille guidebooks and maps. You can also see the long list of attractions that have audio description available.

    As far as fireworks go, I have a few tips for you! If you are planning on also watching Fantasmic! during your visit, then you should know that if you attend the first performance of the night, you can stay right where you are and watch the fireworks which are usually immediately after Fantasmic! If you want to focus solely on the fireworks, plan to get a spot early in the area in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. You will notice that Cast Members will begin to rope viewing areas off in the evening for Guests to wait for the fireworks. You might also want to try the area near "it's a small world." A lot of folks don't often think of this area to watch the fireworks, but it actually has pretty amazing views!

    I hope your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is full of magic and memories!
