Description And Comments

Memorable vignettes and music from beloved Disney films combine with a stellar fireworks display while Jiminy Cricket narrates a lump-in-your-throat story about making wishes come true.

For an uncluttered view and lighter crowds, watch from the end of Main Street between Plaza Restaurant and Tomorrowland Terrace. Another good fireworks-viewing area is the second story of the Main Street railroad station. The spot we'd previously recommended, in the Tomorrowland Terrace area, was apparently so good that Disney decided they could charge for it. To view Wishes from this location now costs around $27.68 per adult and $14.90 per child. The viewing comes with a dessert buffet and nonalcoholic beverages. Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance online or by calling 407-WDW-DINE (939-3463).

Touring Tips

FastPass+ is also available for Wishes, giving you access to a special viewing area just off to the side of the Central Plaza near Cinderella Castle. We don't recommend FastPass+, however, since (1) it's a slightly odd, slightly off-center view, (2) you still need to show up in advance to claim a good spot, and (3), by giving up one FastPass+ selection, you're going to wait in a very long line for one of the park's headliner attractions. You're better off staking out a decent viewing spot around 20 minutes before the show.
