    Thanks for all your help with our previous questions! Could you provide us with some good options to watch the evening fireworks? We didn't want to financially commit to any events/dining, as our youngest may be asleep by that time. Any tips? Thanks!

    Hi Kendra,

    Thank you again for letting me help you with your vacation planning.  I totally understand not committing to any dining or events until you know how your children will do all day at the parks.  Many a time we had to stroll or carry out sleeping kids earlier than we thought or actually wanted to leave.  I can give you a couple of locations for viewing the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom.  I find that the in front of Cinderella's Castle is a great location, but it is so crowded and almost claustrophobic especially if you are in a stroller.  I like to go behind the castle instead by Prince Charming Regal Carrousel.  My girls when they were younger were often frightened of the loud fireworks and preferred this location as well.  If you want a front view with less crowds than if front of Cinderella's Castle, you can head by the Crystal Palace just off of Main Street U.S.A.  
    IllumiNations:  Reflections of Earth at Epcot  can be seen anywhere around the World Showcase.  I prefer around Canada but since the fireworks show is in the middle of the World Showcase Lagoon, all spots around the lake are just fantastic!  I am so excited for your trip, Kendra!  I know you will have the best time.
