I find it amazing how Disney makes all the different images on the castle. The fireworks are great. They almost surround you. It gets very crowded but most of the time you're looking up, so it's not a problem.

Absolutely fantastic show!! The light show is my favourite part and is incredibly clever. The music, lights and pictures all flow so well. The fireworks and well planned to great music and are very breath taking! We waited in the rain for an hour and it was well worth it!! Also well organised monorails, buses etc at the end to... More

You can watch this from the California Grill restaurant at the Contemporary Hotel. I like that the show included the latest Disney songs from Frozen.

The atmosphere was amazing to start of with, everybody is all happy and cheerful and the children are all buzzing after seeing the Disney characters on The Electrical Parade (which in itself... More

Even though it was my second time it was still amazing. A must see... Try to move back during the fireworks otherwise the castle obstructs your view.

Amazing fireworks! Disney knows how to do it right. We watched by Haunted Mansion, so we were able to see everything but avoid most of the crowds. The fireworks were brighter than any I've ever seen before. I think Disney must sprinkle some magic pixie dust in them or something. Highly recommend seeing this fireworks show while at Magic Kingdom.

I have been to orlando numerous time and the only must on my list is magic kingdom and the wishes fireworks! They are absolutely amazing, the best I have seen anywhere. Would highly recommend. We watched from the train station last time and had a great view and managed to escape before the crowds hit the gates!

Great as usual. Try viewing them back in the new area, Fantasyland. We sat on stools back by Gaston's place and it was perfect, not crowded at all. We had just arrived and still found a good spot. Don't miss this.

This is a fairly obvious review but it is fireworks on another level, a magical must do. Also there is a mass exodus from the park at this stage I don't know what the exit pedestrian and vehicular traffic is like because we didn't get involved, the fireworks start at ten but the park and rides stay open til 1am....
