    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.

    Wishes gives me chills and make me cry. I also love Illuminations but Wishes is my favorite.

    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.
