If you’re anything like us, you probably know all of the best places to see the fireworks at Walt Disney World. With the Magic Kingdom’s current fireworks show, Disney Enchantment, the go-to viewing location is in front of Cinderella Castle, of course, but you can also find incredible views of the show from Fantasyland, and even outside of the park at nearby resorts like Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. While these viewing locations all cover place to see the fireworks on the ground, what about seeing them from the sky?
Check out this video, posted to TikTok by user @clems0nchristy to see a rare look at the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom as seen from a plane soaring high above this Disney theme park:

@clems0nchristy shared that she caught this little-seen view of the popular Disney fireworks show while on her flight out of Orlando International Airport following a Disney vacation. One TikTok user, @derekblack7, even replied to the video saying, “Aww you got to experience the magic one final time!”
Catching that one last glimpse of Walt Disney World as you prepare to head home following a vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth is a feeling many of us Disney Fanatics know well, but given varying travel schedules and the simple probability of being in the ‘right place at the right time’ to catch a moment like this one, it is not all that common to see the fireworks from the plane.
Other comments from Disney fans who watched the video on TikTok admitted that they would have cried at the sight of seeing the fireworks one last time after a trip like this, and the original poster agreed that she did, too, while filming the experience.
Of course, we can’t guarantee it as there are so many considerations that go into the route a plane takes upon takeoff, but if you happen to have your next flight to or from the Orlando International Airport during the fireworks, be sure to look out the window…just in case!
