Summer is here, and that means warm weather, longer days and of course, later nights at the Disneyland Resort! One of the most popular nighttime activities during the summer season (weather permitting of course) is the “Magical” fireworks spectacular at Disneyland park. Who doesn’t love to see the night sky light up to music from classic Disney stories like “Pinocchio,” “Mary Poppins,” and “Sleeping Beauty”?
Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite places to enjoy the show. If you’re a “Magical” regular, maybe give a new location a try and let us know your favorite viewing spot in the comments!
- Main Street, U.S.A. – There is something exciting and awe-inspiring about watching fireworks bursting into the shape of Mickey Mouse in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle from Main Street, U.S.A. It’s like a Disney icon trifecta.
- “it’s a small world” – This location even offers its own mini-show, with projections onto the attraction that complement the fireworks and music.
- Rivers of America – This is a fantastic place to catch not one, but two Disneyland park nighttime spectaculars. Arrive early to watch the first “Fantasmic!” show of the night and then stay right there in your spot to watch “Magical.” Be sure to check the Entertainment Guide when you arrive, of course, as show times are subject to change.
Bonus tip: “Magical” can be seen from many areas of Disneyland park, but the show’s soundtrack can be heard in all three of the viewing locations listed above.
And if you’re lucky enough, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the fireworks from a Disneyland park attraction – adding a little extra magic as you sled down the icy slopes of the Matterhorn or plunge into the Briar Patch at Splash Mountain.
Now it’s your turn – where is your favorite place to enjoy “Magical?”
