    WDW Oct 31-Nov8 this year. On the evening we arrive, we plan to eat a small meal at the Polynesian Resort and would like to watch the MK fireworks while in the area. Where is the best location around the lake to watch them from. Doing MK 3 days that week

    Hey Shannon!

    I have a practically perfect place for your to watch Wishes outside of the Magic Kingdom. I suggest grabbing a quick service dinner from Captain Cook's at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. (My favorite menu item is the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with teriyaki sauce and pineapple salsa. YUM!) After dinner, stop by the Pineapple Lanai for a world-famous Dole Whip before heading out to the beach in front of the Polynesian to grab lounge chair for the show.

    I suggest planning your evening so that you are on the beach at least an hour before Wishes so you can also take in the Electrical Water Pageant.

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

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