    My family and I will be at WDW over the 4th of July weekend. Where is one of the better spots to see the fireworks?? Also has anyone seen La Nouba??

    Hi Teresa!

    Historically speaking, the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios will have special fireworks for the 4th of July.  Epcot historically has run Illuminations with a special holiday "tag" after the normal show.  All three are great firework shows!

    If you want to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks, then you absolutely have to get to the park sometime before Noon.  Based on the past, there is a good chance the Magic Kingdom will close due to capacity in the afternoon.  Needless to say the park will be crowded.  Alternatives include watching the fireworks from the Polynesian Resort Beach or on July 3rd, because Disney "rehearses" the show on July 3rd.

    Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios will also be crowded, but Epcot, at least, can absorb huge crowds and so won't feel as packed as the other two parks.  If you don't like crowds, then definitely go to Epcot on July 4th; it will still be very crowded, but it will be better than the Magic Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    La Nouba is spectacular.  I took my family there on our last trip last October.  Both of my sons, age 11 and 6 at the time, absolutely enjoyed it.  My 11 year old said it was the best show he has ever seen in his entire life!  Definitely something to try if you are interested!

    Have a magical vacation!
