Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Hi, our trip is 4/7-4/13 (SOON!) We have ADR's at Ohana on Sat. at 5:20 PM and wanted to visit the beach of Poly for Fireworks... are we going to end up with a very long time in between? Traveling with 2YO and 4.5YO. How soon should we get a spot to watch?

  • Cynthia:

    According to the Magic Kingdom calendar for Saturday, April 12, Wishes firework show will be held at 10 p.m. Because I usually give myself about 1.5 hours for a table service meal, your dinner would probably end around 7 p.m., three hours before the showing of Wishes...

    Although there are a few shops at the resort that could pass the time, with little ones who might not have a long attention span, I would recommend looking for a dining time that is later in the evening if you want to see the show from the Polynesian Resort's beach (like 7:30 or 8 p.m.) If you can't get a later reservation, consider hoping on the boat at the Poly pier and making the loop from it to the Grand Floridian on to the Magic Kingdom and back to waste a solid 40 minutes. The lights of the resorts glow on the water and are sure to mesmerize the children.

    I usually like to get down to the beach about 30 to 45 minutes before "show-time" so I can snag a beach lounger, but if you don't mind sitting on the sidewalk or taking a towel to spread out on the sand, you can head down to the beach nearer to its start-time.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!
