Fireworks watching

Hi everyone,
I called yesterday to reserve a boat for fireworks. After an hour and 40 minute wait, I was told the boat was sold out for Epcot. It is 424 with tax which is kind of steep,. I was, still am, hoping for a dessert party by the end of July, but if not I was considering this boat tour.

But if I can’t reserve a boat and there are no dessert parties, does anyone have a suggestion how best to watch the fireworks, like what is a good time to start reserving a spot and what is a decent spot at both parks? Doesn’t have to be the “perfect spot”. MK starts at 9:15 and Epcot at 10. I hate having to give up 2 hours of park time just to hold down a spot but if that’s what I need to do then… Just curious to hear from anyone who has been to MK or Epcot since the fireworks came back earlier this month what their experience was? Thanks

I dont have a lot of Epcot experience. I Only saw the show once on a trip but the lagoon is huge and there are so many spots to watch. I just stood back 10 mins before and watched. I wasn’t up against the fence so people were in front of me. An hour before should be sufficient. Usually at MK I find a spot an hour ahead of time and hunker down with a snack. I’ve heard the bridge in France is a good place to watch but it probably fills up early. I don’t know for the newer shows where the best spots are.

With the current EP show, all the action is up in the air, not on the water, and it’s not really facing a specific direction. Anywhere around the lagoon should be good. You might not want to be directly downwind.
