I thought watching the fireworks on Thanksgiving night would be a wonderful way to cap our day. After reading this blog, I am a bit panicked at whether or not to tackle this. From the four options below, what would be your recommendations? (BTW: the blog is http://blog.touringplans.com/2015/07/15/wishes-fireworks-viewing-without-fastpass/)
For context: we have a party of three 70+ year olds, a 10 month old, a 7 year old, and 2 parents. It’s important to note that we will be in Fantasyland immediately beforehand, as I promised my son he could return after Thanksgiving dinner and hit all the ‘midway’ rides we had to skip in our 2 days of touring. The HUB and Main Street are not an option for us if I want to be on speaking terms with my husband in the morning
Option 1) Storybook Circus (near 7DMT and Dumbo)
Option 2): Old Fantasyland -the area from the Mad Tea Party up to the Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel (right under fireworks)
Option 3) Tomorrowland up at the Noodle station. According to one commenter, there’s usually not very many people, you can see all the effects, and Tinker Bell flies right over your head!
Option 4) Forget about the fireworks.Too much of a hassle.
Finally, am I to assume if we choose any of the above alternative locations, that catching Celebrate the Magic is out? If so, that is ok. If we have to be at the HUB or on Main Street to catch celebrate the magic, it’s not worth it.
Any advice would be great. It’s been twenty years since I’ve been to WDW, and even though I had been at least 5 or 5 times throughout my youth into my twenties, I don’t think I ever caught the fireworks.
