    Hi. We are visiting Disney from 9/3-9/ 4 yr old daughter is afraid of the noise of fireworks. Where can we watch the fireworks without being "right there"...i want our 2 yr old to enjoy them, but don't want our 4 yr old to be frightened.

    Hi Jeniffer,

    Those fireworks are noisy aren't they, I can still remember having to leave fireworks shows when my daughters were little because they were scared, we then progressed to watching with me standing behind them covering their ears. Finally aged about 7 they could enjoy them fully, this coincided with their first trip to Disney which was lucky!

    There are several fireworks shows in Disney but the best one to watch from a distance is the Magic Kingdom show Wishes, this also happens to be my favourite. A lovely place to watch is from the beach at the Polynesian Resort, you can get there via the resort monorail from Magic Kingdom. You get a wonderful view of the fireworks but without all the bangs, they even pipe in the music. There is also lots of room for your little ones to run around whilst you all watch!

    Have a fabulous trip,
