5 Things You Should Ask Cast Members at Magic Kingdom

Cinderella Castle Fireworks

4. Where is the best spot to watch Wishes?

The times guide will tell you what time Wishes is, but it won’t tell you where the best spot to watch it is—and that’s where the cast members come in. Most cast members have seen Wishes at least once, and some may even have a favorite spot that you haven’t thought of watching it from! While I personally love to watch the fireworks spectacular from the hub area in front of Cinderella Castle, I have also found a few other spots that offer a fresh perspective and are equally as magical. You can watch it in New Fantasyland, either by Gaston’s Tavern or by the carousel, or even in Tomorrowland right by the gift shop that you exit Space Mountain from. Because the music is piped through the park, you won’t feel like you’re missing something by not being in front of the castle if that area is too crowded for you, which it can be during peak times throughout the year.
