    Have you watched wishes from a different area of the magic kingdom park? Any recommendations?

    I've watched from several different places. What kind if view do you want? If you want to see all of the castle then main street is your best bet.

    I was thinking not a traditional one, what can you see from frontierland or near Dumbo for instance?

    One of my favourite evenings was when we watched from behind the Castle. We sat down near Dumbo and had sundaes from Mrs Potts. The fireworks were exploding overhead. Magical. :)

    Oh, I'd forgotten about that. Maybe someone can let you have a current map. :)

    We watched it from behind the castle one time. It was between the carousel and teacups. There was a young girl there in a wheelchair. She LOVED the fireworks! Every time they exploded she'd squeal and laugh, laugh, laugh. It was the best time we've ever had watching Wishes!!

    Slightly off kilter here but we watched Wishes from the roof terrace at BLT the other year and I was amazed how far away the fireworks were discharged.
    This definitely ain`t the best viewing point! :lol:

    Another vote from behind the castle, it is completely different and the view and feeling is amazing. It feels as if the fireworks are right above you.

    All the seating has gone from that area for the time being, so I guess the only place you could grab a seat would be at Pinocchio's Village Haus or on the wall by Pooh.

    We watched it from under the castle :)

    You do have to bend or sit on the floor, and may miss some, specially the villains part, but I loved watching the fireworks explode over the carrousel, plus, thats where Cindy watches from ;)
