    Re: Intriguing, weird, unusual, neat places to watch the fireworks?

    I watched them from the ARCO Station on the corner of Ball Road and Disneyland Drive once.....pretty loud from there.

    From the tunnel underneath the railroad tracks backstage behind FL Theatre and next to Toontown. It's loud as hell and you don't get much music (you can sort of hear it in the background), but you get to actually see some of the fireworks launch. There are other places to do the same thing, methinks.

    If you want to be NEAR the hub, but not in the thick of the crowds, I like watching them from an angle & through the trees on the bridge that leads to Carnation Plaza. It's usually not as crowded & you get a fun angle.

    My Favorite place to view the fireworks (other then the hub,) is from Storybook land.

    you see, all the boats stop where they are, so if you can time it right, you can get an amazing view from London park.

    great view and never crowded!

    One time we watched the fireworks from the top level of the Mickey and Friends parking structure. Obviously there was no music and such, but we were the only ones there watching it and it's a really unique view of things. Definitely a cool memory.

    Re: Intriguing, weird, unusual, neat places to watch the fireworks?

    There are a few places that I really like, actually.

    I love working Greeter at the Opera House during the fireworks, because the view from there is actually quite good. You don't see the castle or Tink at all, but you couldn't ask for a better view of the shells.

    Big Thunder is an amazing place to watch this show, if you luck out on the timing. On the day Space Mountain reopened, I was hanging around the park with a friend (she was a CM at the time, I was not). We were standing in line for Indy at 8:30. We had another pair of Indy Fastpasses, and we wanted to do that, Fantasmic, fireworks, Thunder, and Space Mountain before the park closed at midnight. We didn't think it would be possible to do everything, so we decided to skip fireworks. So we got off Indy, ran around and rode it again, then hurried over to Fantasmic and got a spot along the rope at the back of one section. The second the show ended, we ducked under the rope and scurried over to Big Thunder, which had no line. Basically, by the time we got through the first tunnel and out into the open, the big shells had just started. Our timing was perfect, so we were going through the interior areas of the ride during quiet times in the sky. As soon as we got off, we ran around the front and rode it again. The show was still going at this point, so we decided to head around Big Thunder Trail to head toward Tomorrowland. We saw Tink as she made her reappearance at the end, and ended up in Fantasyland near Casey Jr. for the finale, with fireworks going off all around us. It was AWESOME. (That was a longer story than I expected.)

    Since DQ mentioned backstage areas, I must add K-Lot and the Adventureland offices as favorite places.

    You get a pretty good view from the San Francisco area of DCA, too.

    For a quick in park and close to the castle sets. Near the roped off area near the base of the Matterhorn. Theres no one in front of you except a happy CM and you have the castle fireworks to you left and tink above as well as a great view of the big ones from out back and the hub fireworks. Best of all the loud music piped in.

    I have seen them from the top of the SunWheel. I got on the SunWheel (stationary Cars) just as they began. It is an awesome view. You don't get to see the entire display, but it is definitely worth doing at least once. I did wish the music was there also.

    I'm surprised I haven't seen this one mentioned yet... the smoking area across from Haunted Mansion actually affords a pretty decent view of the fireworks, although the trees do obscure some of the low-flying ones...

    This is also a great place to watch Fantasmic from, away from the throngs... of course, bear in mind, it IS a smoking area, so if smoke offends you or makes you ill, this option may not be best.

    The Fantasyland side of the Matterhorn is a great place to catch the fireworks, but like Big Thunder, you have to time it just right.
