    If we wanted to see Wishes on 11/14 from one of the resorts, which would have the best view/most comfortable way to watch? Is it possible to hear the soundtrack along with the fireworks if you're not in MK? What time should we arrive to watch? Thank you!!

    Hey Dara!

    I have a practically perfect place for you to watch Wishes outside of the Magic Kingdom!

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is located directly across the Seven Seas Lagoon from the Magic Kingdom with a perfect view of the show. They even pipe in the soundtrack. I suggest arriving at least 30 minutes before Wishes. However, if you arrive a little earlier you can catch the Electric Water Pageant as it floats by.

    My family likes to plan a late dinner at Capt. Cook's then head to the Pineapple Lanai to grab a Dole Whip before heading out to the beach. Can you imagine a more comfortable way to watch Wishes then sitting on the beach in a lounge chair with a Dole Whip in my hand? I can't! 

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions about viewing Wishes or any other aspect of your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
