A nice fireworks show at Disney Mar 18, 2013
Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is a fireworks show, that happens around Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom, and a good way to close out a day or entire trip to Disney World.

It starts off with an introduction from the Blue Fairy and Jiminy Cricket, both from “Pinocchio”, followed by its theme song, “Starlight, Starbright”. Then various Disney songs are played, as you see a nice fireworks show. And you get to see Tinkerbell fly down on a zip line, from the top of the castle, into Tomorrowland.

You can see the show from Frontierland and Tomorrowland, but the best place to see it is on Main Street USA. Not surprisingly, it is the most crowded. So get there ahead of time for a good spot, but be prepared for some pushing and looking over people’s heads, and standing the entire time.

Sometimes, it will happen after either the nighttime light show on the castle, or the Main Street Electrical Parade. So you can watch one of those, and the Wishes fireworks back-to-back. Needless to say, the fireworks show should not be missed at all!

There are usually 2 showings per day. Check the Times Guide for exact times.

Included in park admission!

The Fireworks at Magic Kingdom Mar 21, 2011
Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is the evening fireworks show in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. To build up to the show, changing colored lights play on Cinderella's Castle and the Main Street Electrical Parade winds its way through the park. After the parade, different light patterns play on the castle, including photos of guests taken during that day. (Guests whose wishes have come true!) Finally, Tinker Bell (a live character) "flies" from the top of the castle down to Tomorrowland Terrace and the fireworks are on! Different volleys of fireworks light up the castle, illuminating it from various angles. At last, there is an all-out volley for the conclusion! (It's said Disney is the world's largest consumer of fireworks.)

Our vantage point was from Tomorrowland Terrace at the Dessert Party. The fireworks began at 10:00 p.m. on the night we were there, but can start at different times throughout the year. Check the park event schedule for that day. The best place to be is on Main Street, but it will be crowded! Get a spot for the parade and hold on to it through the fireworks show. There was a second running of the parade at 11:00 p.m. after the fireworks.

Included with park admission.
