    Wondering about fastpass for Wishes. Where do you sit? How early do you need to be there?

    Dear Elizabeth,

    Thanks for sending us your questions here to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The planning part of any Walt Disney World Resort vacation is for me almost as exciting as the trip itself!

    At this time, you can no longer get a FastPass+ for Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at the Magic Kingdom. That won't stop you from having a wonderful time though! In my experience, there are truly no bad spots to watch the show. If you really want to be right up front, you might want to arrive up to an hour before the show. However, if you are open to being a bit further back, a favorite place of mine to watch is the grassy area between Casey's Corner and the "hub" in front of Cinderella Castle. Alternatively, if you want to beat the crowds on the way out after the show, try the second floor of the Main Street train station for another all-encompassing view. 

    Moms Panel tip - Be sure to keep your eyes peeled at the beginning of the show for Tinkerbell's absolutely magical flight from the castle's pinnacle, towards Tomorrowland! It's a wonder to behold! Your children will be spellbound.

    Have a pixie-dusted trip!
