    Will be in WDW in June - 2 adults & 4 children -can only put 2 on shoulders!! Have tried various spots to view Wishes on Main Street & in front of castle, but 8 & 10 y/os aren't tall enough to see when crowds throng in! Any tips on best viewing

    Hi Julia,

    I have two suggestions for prime viewing.  We love the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party, a special event that starts with a yummy dessert buffet and ends with a great view of the fireworks.  You can get more information by clicking HERE.  It is very popular, so I'd recommend making reservations if you are interested by calling 407-WDW-DINE.  Another favorite viewing spot for my family is from the beach at the Polynesian Resort.  You'll avoid the crowds at the park, and ensure a great view for your children.  We usually make a late dinner reservation at Ohana (you can actually watch the fireworks from the restaurant if you chose to) and then head down to the beach to enjoy the show.

    I hope these help.  Happy planning!
