The crowds are very thick on Main Street, U.S.A.® Area during and after Wishes Nighttime Spectacular. If you want to exit the park immediately after the show, watch from a spot closer to the Walt Disney World Railroad Station on Main Street, U.S.A.® Area. If you’re looking for viewing spots with minimal crowds and unobstructed views, try the terrace of the Tomorrowland Terrace or the second story of the Main Street Railroad Station. (However, these locations require saving your spot well in advance of the show.) Disney begn charging for the viewing spot in the Tomorrowland Terrace-- $27.68 per adult and $14.90 per child. You receive a dessert buffet and nonalcoholic drinks, along witht the viewing spot, for the cost.
FastPass+ is also available to use for special viewing areas. We never use FastPass+, though, for Wishes Nighttime Spectacular because we can usually find just as good of viewing spots without it, and we would rather not give up using FastPass+ for a headlining ride! Mommy Frog can pretty much narrate the entire Wishes Nighttime Spectacular show along with Jiminy Cricket and she still needs a tissue by the end of it. As many times as we've seen it, we still “ooh” and “aah” when Tinkerbell flies from the castle. No matter how much you fight it, when you hear "Star light, star bright" at the beginning of this show, you're hooked forever.
Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is a fireworks show in Magic Kingdom® Park. The duration of the show is about 12 minutes. Fireworks schedules vary by season, so check the Times Guide when you enter the park or Undercover Tourist’s apps for a current schedule. The show can be viewed throughout the park, but to see Tinker Bell fly from the castle, a spot in front of Cinderella Castle is recommended.

The same show designer who created the nighttime spectacular "Believe" at Disneyland® Park also developed "Wishes." "Wishes" is available most nights at the Magic Kingdom® Park. Check the Magic Kingdom® Times Guide for current and updated information.
The show is presented as the Park's "good night kiss" to its Guests. This dazzling musical storytelling spectacular is bigger and brighter than any fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom® ever! Fireworks effects are launched from 11 different locations with 655 individual pieces of pyrotechnics. Wishes fireworks show is the newest nighttime spectacular in the Magic Kingdom® replacing "Fantasy in the Sky" which made its debut in 1976.
