I have only been to Walt Disney World twice and as an adult. Wishes Fireworks after a day of Magic Kingdom fun, is the perfect ending! The fireworks are absolutely breathtaking. Not your standard 4th of July fireworks in your city! Music is synched in from a few Disney movies & is played throughout the viewing area.
Must see!

So fantastic! The music is tear inducing and magical. A great experience. A MUST! Never miss it. Try to go at a time of year when there is no holiday. They change the show to holidays (boo for halloween, christmas for Nov and Dec).

We took someones advice and viewed the fireworks from the other side of the lake at one of the transportation centres. We would do this again as you can fully appreciate how good they are. We have viewed them from within Disney and didn't get the full effect

“Just like you imagined - castle + fireworks”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

The fireworks were good, but the backdrop of the Disney castle made it memorable. Plan to get food early because we had to hunt for a place after 9pm after realizing we were starving, and the lines were long.

Love this fireworks show. It's hard to find a bad spot to view them. For years our favorite spot was Tomorrowland Terrace until it was taken over by a special dessert party and made unavailable (unless you paid for attending the dessert party). So far we've viewed from in front of the castle & by the Crystal Restaurant (too many trees). Last year we viewed from the wall leading to the Haunted Mansion. I would suggest being mindful of which way the wind is blowing. Watching by the Liberty Bell/Haunted Mansion area & not noting the wind direction got us ashes in the eyes. We usually see these fireworks twice. Once has to be in Magic Kingdom & the other in our 2nd favorite place, the Polynesian. We either see them from the dining room in O'Hana's (they turn down lights & pipe in music) or on the beach (which is wonderfully relaxing).
