    My 3 year old son has a sensory disorder. He loves to watch fireworks but the sounds bother him. Is there any locations we can view the fireworks but they are quieter? I was told California Grill is a good location but they don't have any reservations.

    Welcome Katherine!

    I have a great solution for you. I suggest hopping on the resort monorail and heading to the beach at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. This is the perfect location to watch Wishes outside the Magic Kingdom.

    My family loves to eat at the newly refurbished Captain Cook's quick service restaurant before heading to be beach to get a lawn chair where we can watch the Electrical Water Pageant, Celebrate the Magic and Wishes. (I will say, at this distance, Celebrate the Magic is merely a brightly glowing castle but I think your son will still enjoy it.)

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a magical vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
