    Hi! Our vacation starts 8/15/13 and we just got our Magic Bands! I added Wishes and Illumminations to 'My Plans' in My Disney Experience, and they both show a preferred viewing area,". Does that mean we will be able to view the fireworks from there?

    Celia, how amazing! You have been sprinkled with pixie dust! The chance to test out the new Magic Bands is an opportunity only some selected guests get to experience.

    Preferred viewing areas for fireworks are an option with FastPass+. There is a difference, however, between adding IllumiNations and Wishes to your itinerary with My Disney Experience and choosing a FastPass+ for preferred viewing of these nighttime spectaculars. If you picked these two events from "Make FastPass+ selections"  under My Disney Experience you are good to go. If you simply added Epcot's and the Magic Kingdom's pyrotechnic shows to your plans, underneath the name of the event the statement " reminder, this is not a reservation" will appear.

    Enjoy the fireworks display!
