    Get a seat at the Main Street Train Station. You will have a great view and can buzz right down the stairs and out the gate before the mad dash hits for buses, boats & monorails.

    Watch Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from Fantasyland near Dumbo. Fireworks launch all around you. There’s usually a fun Cast Member “conducting” show & pointing out where to look for the next burst.

    Be sure to make a wish during the show.

    You'll have a great view and Tinkerbell will fly right above you if you watch from the rose garden on Main Street.

    You will never see a better, more spectacular and well choreographed fireworks show in your life. The perfect viewing spot is in the middle of Main Street, right by Casey's corner or so.

    Drew McLellan · August 27, 2011
  • Randy O.

    Don't get stuck too close to the Castle. Try and Watch from back down Main Street for a better overall view.

    Try to get reservation at tomorrowland terrence restaurant for fireworks and dessert.

    If you've already seen the show from in front of the castle try watching from Fantasyland for a completely different experience!

    I definitely cried, where do I get the soundtrack for Wishes??

    Watch wishes from behind the castle in Fantasyland. A whole new experience.

    The tip about it being gone is wrong. Wishes is still shown nightly and still amazing as ever. A must see! And a great way to end your day at the magic kingdom!

    The fireworks might look best while sitting in front of cindy's castle, but for a closer view of the large fireworks, chill by the carousel in fantasyland. Less crowds too.

    Remember, we must always believe in our wishes, for they are the magic in the world.

  • Alex M.

    Don't worry too much about people standing in front of you, after all the fireworks are in the sky!

    Alex Moody · August 23, 2013
  • Randall M.

    Be careful of all the fat people on gocarts trying to do 90 mph down Main st.

    Randall Murphy · September 23, 2012

    Watch from Fantasyland for a 360 show!

    I live about 15min away.. Every night at 10 I hear these fireworks.. It's annoying . Haha

    IF you don't have to get the effect with the castle, stand by Dumbo! Fireworks come right out of the roof tops here and you are literally in the middle of them. Better than any 4th of July!!

    If you had a Disney childhood, be ready to cry! A wonderful show, the fireworks are just spectacular. Don't forget to make a wish! Best spot is next to Casey's Corner. ENJOY!

    I watched in Liberty Square and it was perfect. Great view of the castle, not too many people.

    Pick a good spot early.

    Watch the fireworks from behind the castle next to the carousel. Amazing to watch the fireworks erupting all around you!

    Rick Chu · August 16, 2011
  • Stephen J.

    If you're a DVC member staying at Bay Lake Towers with your points, go up to the 'Top of the World Lounge' for the best viewing experience. It's truly magical!

    Stephen Juliano · May 29, 2011
  • Gregorio F.

    Yeah still goes on!

    Gregorio Feliciano · March 2, 2011
  • Joe R.

    'Go the Distance' and make sure you see this Disney masterpiece. Best viewing near the end if Main Street near the info board IMO.

    Joe Romero · February 9, 2011
  • Kristen

    One of the best places to watch now is in front of Be Our Guest. The fireworks launch right behind Beast's castle so they're very close (also very loud).

    Kristen · June 8, 2013
  • Nicole F.

    Amazing! Makes me cry every time!

    Nicole Ford · April 27, 2013
  • Albert Q.

    on my personal experience the best seats are just at the between the caseys and the ice cream parlor and the wlat and mickey statue infront the castle

    If you watch from the center, cut through the gift shop after the show. You will avoid the crowd and get to the boat/monorail before the lines fill up.

    I can watch this from my balcony! - WaltCast Podcast

    The light-up Mickey ears flash & glow in synch with the show!

  • Kevin H.

    Sad, to see the real one you'll need to go to California and see it at Disneyland. Oh and tinker-bell flailing her arms around was embarrassing...

    Kevin H · October 14, 2013
  • Kenny S.

    Get a seat early

    Kenny Stanley · August 21, 2013
  • James N.

    Stand behind the castle in new fantasyland for 360 fireworks!

    James Nicotri · February 22, 2013
  • Erin G.

    If you are not into crowds, watch from fantasyland :)

    Erin Greene · October 15, 2011
  • Chelsea H.

    This is a must see! A great place to watch is from the Rose Garden, which people don't seem to know about too much, so it's not crowded

    Chelsea Hudlow · October 5, 2011
  • Marc Z.

    The best spot to view the fireworks is the middle of Main Street next to Caseys.

    So magical.. brought back so many childhood memories! Loved it 💕

    Sit almost right in front of the statue of Walt Disney and Mickey. You can see everything and it's beautiful!

    Emily Truax · June 19, 2013
  • Vivian N.

    People, please sit down!

    Vivian Noveline · January 20, 2013
  • Robert

    Sit on the terras in front of the Plaza restaurant for an excellent view on the lightshow and the fireworks. Be sure to be there 1,5 hours before it begins. Look: http://www.bit.ly/Magickingdom

    This performance always makes me cry. You'd be surprised how easy it is to find standing space in front of the castle.
