The Disneyland fireworks show is a magical experience that you should not miss on your next Disney Trip! The show features dazzling pyrotechnics, music, and projections that light up the night sky. There are many great places to watch the fireworks show, but here are a few of the best:
- Main Street, U.S.A.: Along Main Street U.S.A. and in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle is the most iconic place to watch the fireworks show, and for good reason. The view of the show from Main Street is simply stunning. If you are on the street the projections will be all around you, it's hard to know which way to look! If you're in front of the castle, the fireworks right over the castle, lit up with magical projections, is an awe-inspiring sight. But remember that this area will get very crowded fast, so it's important to arrive early to get a good spot. (pro-tip, if you are towards the end of Main Street, closest to the fireworks, pick a spot on the right so the fireworks aren't blocked by pesky trees! We learned this one the hard way)
- It's a Small World: the viewing area in front of It's a Small World is a great place to watch the fireworks show if you're looking for a more relaxed experience. The view of the show from It's a Small World is still excellent with an awesome view of the projections, but the area fills up later than other places, so you don't have to arrive as early. Another plus is the fireworks are launched next door from the ride, over in Mickey's ToonTown, so you'll get to see them up close and personal.
- The Rivers of America: Just like the view from It's a Small World, the Rivers of America won't be as hectic as Main Street U.S.A. That does not mean that you are missing any of the show, though. The projections are excellent along the river and the view of the fireworks is spectacular.
- Disneyland Railroad: A fun way to travel around the park, The Disneyland Railroad is also one of the more unique vantage points to view the fireworks show. You can board the Disneyland Railroad at any station in the park, and eventually you will be right underneath (but still at a safe distance from!) the show. We wouldn't recommend this for a first time viewing but for seasoned viewers it might be an interesting change!
And lastly a great place to see the fireworks shows is from your suite at the Desert Palms Hotel and Suites! Book your stay today and request a Disney view! (Note that not all room types face Disneyland, requests are subject to availability upon check in.)
No matter where you choose to watch the Disneyland fireworks show, you're sure to have a magical experience.
