    Fireworks viewing?

    Where is the best place to view fireworks without having to wait for hours?

    We will sometimes get a dessert and a table at the Plaza Inn. Usually don't have to get there super early but you also don't get to see much of the castle. Mostly the overhead stuff.

    We always show up a few minutes before the show on main street next to the ice cream parlor it decent spot

    It's a music Celebration
    Come on, come on, come on
    Strike up the band,
    Feel the beat, what a great sensation
    Come on, come on, come on
    Move and clap your hands,
    Get into the Spirit
    Let everyone hear it,
    So come on, come on

    I like the view from farther back towards the end of Main St. The fireworks look huge from there and you can get there about 10-15 minutes before the show to grab a decent spot.
    And if you go on a really slow night, it might look like this.

    If you are fine with missing the projections on the castle and Tinkerbell, you can view by IASW. We don't usually see large crowds back there, and it is easy to grab a good viewing spot close to fireworks time. Get a popcorn, find a spot, and enjoy!

    Re: Fireworks viewing?

    At Disney World, my favorite places are either on the bridge that connects the castle to Tomorrow Land or down by the water to the right of the castle where the swan boats used to be. The crowds are very manageable, especially by the water.

    In fact, one of my favorite Disney moments happened there. I was waiting with my folks for the fireworks to start with another family who had a little girl who was probably five or six. There were just a couple other families in the area, so it was great. There was a computer glitch somewhere along the line and, without warning, music, a light change, or Tinkerbell, the fireworks just started. (I'm sure someone got fired that night!)

    The little girl was completely distraught that she didn't see Tinkerbell anywhere. A CM who happened to be close-by jumped at the chance to ease this child's concerns. His quick thinking?...Tinkerbell ate too much rocky road ice cream after dinner and "got too fat to fly that evening." He told her she was going to work out all day tomorrow and she'd be back for the fireworks tomorrow night! The little girl totally accepted it as fact and the dad high-fived the CM. Brilliant? TOTALLY!

    Re: Fireworks viewing?

    In front of IASW, along the Rivers of America (there are usually Fantasmic crowds though, but they even shoot lasers during the Star Wars segment!), from the top of the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure, from the esplanade, from Fantasyland by Dumbo, walkway of Innoventions, and sometimes there are many open spots on Main Street or in the hub. It's not unusual to walk up 5-10 minutes before the show and find a descent spot on main street or in front of the castle
