Hey Shawn…thanks for the info! I’m a WDW CM and I’m hoping you can tell me where all the limited time food items are located….I know where to get the Lone Ranger root beer boot mug at Pecos Bills, but where are the apple pie cupcakes, the strawberry shortcake, etc.

Will Wishes still be played at the Magic Kingdom on July 6th? I’ll be there this date and I love Wishes!!

Leonilda – Through July 7, our nightly fireworks spectacular at Magic Kingdom will be Disney’s Celebrate America! Wishes returns Monday, July 8, at 10 p.m. Wishes is a terrific show, but I think you’ll also really enjoy the Independence Day show, with extra fireworks launched from locations around the park. It’s epic!


Leonilda from Sao Paulo on July 2nd, 2013 at 11:57 am

Ok, thank you!!! I will surely enjoy this show too!!

Great show, we watched from our balcony at the Contemporary. People started camping spots at 4pm for the show!
