Seems like we're all doing polls today :)

What fireworks show do you like the best?

I love wishes and think it's very cleverly done, especially at the events BUT my eye wateringly, sighingly favourite display of all is Illuminations

I can't comment on Fantasmic since I have never seen it, however...Illuminations would be the absolute fave.

We've seen it from all over the place. We've stood directly in front of the castle. We've sat on the veranda at Tomorrowland Terrace. We've been all over Main Street watching it. We've watched it from 'Ohana and California Grill. The BEST place to view it is if you can be part of a Grand Gathering and do the fireworks cruise. You are out in the water and can see the front of MK, the train station and the castle. It is breathtaking.

We should! The fireworks cruise is loads of fun. You meet Captain Hook and Mr Smee at the Contemporary and have snacks and drinks. Then you get divided up into 2 boats and sing your way down to the dock. There are jokes and songs and trivia contests on the boats. I won an eye patch :p015:. They set you so you can see the Electrical Water Parade and position you in front of MK. There is usually banter between the 2 boats. When you get back to the Contemporary, you meet Peter Pan. Well worth the money IMO.

I like to set up by the train station, that way I can get out before the crowd gets to me.

Yes, Illuminations for me too. I always end up crying when she sings We go On :cry1::cry1:

OK, Ive decided I need a severe sprinkling of Pixie Dust. Wishes does nothing for me (am I allowed to say that? :oops: ) Illuminations on the other hand makes my whole body tingle. I love the fireworks there. Today I was driving on the back roads with the music playing as loud as I could make it, just wishing I was in Epcot.

In my humble opinion the fireworks at MNSSHP are the best of any and the final salvo is set off all over the park not just behind the castle.
Can't pick between Wishes and Illuminations though so I haven't voted.

MNSSHP fireworks are the best I have ever seen - absolutely fantastic!

I voted Wishes just because I prefer the backdrop of Cinderella (sorry I meant Dizneyblondes :lol:) Castle.

I do love Illuminations though they are very different so it is hard to choose :)

The fireworks at the Pirate and Princess Party were outstanding and I thought they were the best till we saw the test fireworks for NYE at MK (the night before) WOW is all I can say.
