I have a couple of questions about viewing Wishes fireworks from the Polynesian, where we are planning to stay. On our first MK day, I’d like to watch both the evening electrical parade and the fireworks. Since we have two small children, and the fireworks don’t start until 10 pm, I was thinking we could try to leave MK right after the 9 pm parade is over, and head right back to the Polynesian to watch the fireworks from the beach of the resort. My thinking is that we would be able to get the kids to bed slightly earlier since we would already be back at our resort and would avoid the worst of the crush of people leaving the MK after the fireworks.
So, is this idea remotely possible? If we see the 9 pm parade at the Magic Kingdom, can we be back at the Polynesian by 10 for Wishes?
Also, will we hear the music if we watch the fireworks from the Polynesian? To me, that is a big part of the enjoyment, and I wouldn’t want to miss out on the full experience.
