This is the best fireworks show out of the all the parks in WDW. They start with a fly-by from Tinkerbell. The music is fantastic, especially for the Halloween Shows. The fireworks are usually right in front of you or over your head. You can literally feel the explosion of the fireworks in your chest. They way they are timed... More

Observed the fireworks from Bay Lake Tower's Top-of-the-World Observation Deck on the 15th floor (don't get me started about the 16th floor of a hotel with no 13th floor). Great view, sound is piped in...Dreams Really Do Come True!!!

Unless you have little ones that hate loud noises, you really should always make sure you see the Wishes fireworks. Beware of huge crowds and rude people reserving tons of sidewalk space but the actual show is incredible.

These are the best fireworks in all of WDW, and totally worth doing. BUT, another great option is to hit the rides during the parade and fireworks, while the lines are much much much shorter!

Don't get behind trees! They will block your view. The fireworks can be seen from just about anywhere except the area to the left of Main street.

Main Street in Hollywood Studios was very crowded and the screen could not be seen by those at the back, better if another screen could be sited near the rear area.

Awesome, awesome, awesome....get a comfortable spot early, preferably close near the entrance because the fireworks are best seen over the lake.

Disney trip planners always know the best. We were fortunate to have a good planner who recommended staying at Narcoossee's restaurant at the Grand Floridian. We were not disappointed. Perfect view of the water light show and fireworks. Would recommend this for anyone, just plan your reservation for around the fireworks.

The Wishes fireworks show is excellent. Beginning with the projections on Cinderella's castle and carrying through to the finale, the show is very impressive. It is timed well with the soundtrack to the show and manages to tell a story. Having seen it close to 50 times, I am still captivated each time I see it. It is a great... More

We watched the show from behind the castle&on the aladin ride! Great show but defiantly can get crowded so try get a seat as early as possible.
