It’s a little crazy but I was at Disney World twice in under a month. I’ve had a very busy spring. As part of both trips, one for my Traveling Mom retreat and the other for DisneySMMC, I had the opportunity to experience fireworks at Walt Disney World in special ways. I thought I’d share some of the unique ways to watch fireworks at Walt Disney World with you, in case you want to plan a little extra magic on your next Disney vacation.
IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party
IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is a 12 minute show offered at Epcot.
Behold the past, present and future of Earth at this stunning fireworks show that celebrates the spirit of humanity.
The IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party, offers attendees a special viewing area complete with a variety of internationally inspired desserts.
Here’s a sneak peek of the show I shared on Instagram!
This video was taken with this cool new wearable video camera I received during the TMOM retreat. It’s hand free and you wear it at your eye level, giving you a more accurate point of view video that other cameras you might wear on your chest. Check out a full review of the Panasonic HX-A500H POV Wearable 4K Camcorder at Traveling Mom! The best feature is that it’s immersible up to 3 meters, I wish we had it last summer for snorkeling in Roatan!!
Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party
Enjoy the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, the biggest and brightest fireworks ever shown at the Magic Kingdom.
Wishes come true as the voices of beloved Disney characters narrate this spectacular fireworks show
The Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party offers a buffet of decadent desserts, along with hot and cold beverages along with a fabulous view of the fireworks in a special VIP area.
Dine at California Grill at Contemporary Resort
One way to enjoy a fabulous view of the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom without buying a theme park ticket, is having dinner at the California Grill. The California Grill at the Contemporary Resort is located next door to the Magic Kingdom and offers a fantastic view of the fireworks outside its windows. And you don’t have to schedule a late meal, diners from earlier in the day can bring their receipt back to the restaurant to access the California Grill’s outside observation deck during the show! They even pipe in the music!
Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage
The Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage is another unique way to Wishes Nighttime Spectacular without theme park admission! I think it would make a fun splurge on a non park day!
Grab yer mateys and embark on a cruise of Seven Seas Lagoon—featuring fearsome pirate encounters and a fireworks finale!
I’m pretty sure my boys would LOVE the pirate encounters! 🙂
