    We're visiting over easter weekend and following week. How do you know where fireworks are each night and best place to view from?

    Hi Mary! There are three parks that will offer some fireworks during the time you will be visiting Walt Disney World. The first spot to go to is the Magic Kingdom where you can view the famous Wishes show each night at 10pm. The best spots to see the full show are in front of the castle on Main Street however, you can see the fireworks from many other locations in the park.

    Illuminations show is done in Epcot each night at 9pm. Find a spot without trees blocking your view of the center of the lake at any location around in the World Showcase. If you can figure out which direction the wind is blowing it is also good to take that into consideration so you won't have smoke blowing in your face. There is quite a bit of the show done at water level so it is good to find a spot early.

    The last park to have a show that includes fireworks is in Hollywood Studios. On Saturday, March 30 they will offer this twice at 8:30pm and also at 10pm. All of the other dates of your visit they will offer it at 8:30pm but they often are known to add a second show depending on the park crowds. The seating is first come and many guests line up as much as an hour before the show begins. To guarantee a spot you can book a dining package for this at one of the many Studio restaurants. All seats inside the outside theater will offer a good view.

    Hope you can enjoy all three shows during your stay!
