    I will be visiting Disney w/ my husband and 3 kids (ages 7,5 and 4) in mid Feb. I am wondering if we should try to view the Magic Kingdom fireworks show at the park, or if it is better over dinner, say at the California Grill.

    Hi Beth,

    Watching Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from the California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a lovely experience and is obviously much less crowded than watching from the Magic Kingdom itself but, I really don't think that you can beat seeing this amazing fireworks display from just in front of Cinderella Castle.

    The view from here simply cannot be beaten and although there will be lots more Guests around watching the show, the atmosphere is fantastic.

    If you are concerned about the crowds, perhaps you could consider booking the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party which also provides a wonderful vantage point of the show.

    Wishing you a magical trip!
