    Hello, This will be our 1st trip to WDW. We will be there 4th July 2013. Where is the best place to watch the fireworks and do we have to make reservations? We will have a large party (7 adults & 7 kids (ages 5-13). We are not staying in WDW hotel/prop

    Hello Georgia! You must be so excited planning your first vacation to Walt Disney World!  You do not need to be staying on property nor do you need a reservation to see the fireworks.  One thing for sure, you'll want to get your spot early as the parks will be crowded on the 4th of July.  In the past, Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios have all had spectacular firework displays.  You can't go wrong with whichever display you want to see so it really comes down to what park you will be in.  Personally, I'm a Magic Kingdom girl so that is probably where I'd go and my location would be anywhere on Main Street U.S.A. or on the bridge to Tomorrowland.  In reality, anywhere where you can view the castle will be a great view of the fireworks!

    I'd like to link you to a Disney Park blog post from last year so you can read more about what was offered.  Of course, it might not be the same this year but it will give you a good idea on what you can expect.  You can find that post here.

    Have a fabulous vacation and let us know if you have additional questions.  Diane
