My trip is just 40 days away! I currently have a dessert party booked for our last night, where we plan to let the kids stay up and watch fireworks. However, for $613, I’m getting cold feet about the cost That’s a lot of Mickey Bars!
I haven’t been to WDW in over a decade and my last time seeing fireworks at MK was on NYE.
If we cancel the dessert party, where should we “camp out” for fireworks to get the best view of castle projections and Tink flying? I don’t care about Main Street projections. How early do we need to get there for 8:15 Enchantment? 7pm? We have some adults that can hold spots while littles ride attractions.
I would personally skip the party. I have done it many times in the past, but it’s simply not worth it now. They’ve priced me out.
Tink flies straight towards Tomorrowland Terrace you you’ll want to be on that side of the hub. I would personally stand directly behind one of the planters on that side so that no one is directly infront of you. If you have people who can hold the spot I’d send them there an hourish early.
I agree with this. This is where we try to stand. It’s not the absolute perfect, straight on view of the castle, but it is good enough to see the fireworks and projections. What this spot has that the straight on view doesn’t have is Tinkerbell flying right over the top of you (and I am tearing up just typing that sentence at this moment!)
As a point of reference for you, two weeks ago on a night that was a late close (11:00 PM); deluxe extra hours; no party, the Hub reached maximum capacity 50 minutes before show time. Cast Members were doing everthing they could to keep additional people from trying to squeeze in. Your littles may have a difficult time trying to join up with the adults that are trying to hold spaces.
This is helpful. I’m still leaning toward cancelling the dessert party, but will def need a backup fireworks spot, based on this. It’s the last day of the trip so we will have to see how everyone is doing too. Thanks!
Just following up here for those still curious. We snagged an excellent spot for fireworks about an hour before Enchantment on a CL4 day. We had a fence in front of us which meant no obstructed view for the kids. Thanks to this group for the insight!!
