It shouldn’t be surprising that the fireworks at Magic Kingdom are popular. Most people are willing to stay at this theme park until the very end of the day to watch the magic light up the sky. So, what can you do to make the most of your firework’s experience at Magic Kingdom? Well, I came up with a few of what I consider the best tips for watching fireworks at Magic Kingdom with your family.
Okay, so you won’t really be able to avoid the crowds during the fireworks at Magic Kingdom. But you can do all you can to make sure nothing is blocking your view of the nighttime magic.
I recommend standing behind the statue of Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney for the best views. Don’t stand right in front of the castle, because you won’t get the full view of the sky.
Town Square is another area to avoid, because the buildings on Main Street block a lot of the view. If you can avoid standing near the pole on the second floor of the train station, you can find amazing views from there.
You may want to check out locations early in the day, so you know exactly where you want to go when the time comes to claim your spot.
Speaking of claiming your spot… It is best to arrive at your chosen spot early whenever possible. You never know how many other people have claimed that spot in their heads. Some people even sit in their spot all day long, so they can watch the parades and the fireworks.
It isn’t easy to get the best pictures of the fireworks at Magic Kingdom. Especially when you use your smartphone.
While a DSLR camera will offer the best results, you can change your camera settings too. See if your camera has a fireworks or nighttime landscape setting. Use those settings for better results. You can also manually switch your settings in between pictures. However, that will probably make you miss at least half of the show.
You may prefer to skip the photographs during the fireworks at Magic Kingdom and take a video of it instead. This is what many of the pros do. You can easily take snapshot pictures from the video to use as pictures when you get back home.
Depending on what time the park closes, you may have time for a few more rides after the fireworks end at Magic Kingdom. Or you can grab a bite to eat. The lines will be much shorter at this time, because most people rush out after the sky goes dark.
If you want to avoid some of the crowds during the fireworks at Magic Kingdom, consider checking out the Dessert Party. There are a couple options, and I can book either one for you as I am personalizing your Disney vacation itinerary. Simply let me know if you want this included in your magical family vacation.
Another option for really avoiding the fireworks crowds is to take a Sparkling Dessert Cruise. You can book a cruise on one of the ferry boats. The boat will take you out onto the Seven Seas Lagoon.
While you are cruising along, you can enjoy a few sweets and beverages.
The only downside to this cruise is you won’t see all the projections on the side of Cinderella’s castle. But you can still hear the music and narration, as well as the fireworks in the sky.
These are my best tips for watching fireworks at Magic Kingdom with your family. My goal is to make sure your entire Disney vacation is full of magical moments like these. This is why I will personalize your itinerary, so your family doesn’t miss out on any of the activities you want to do the most.
