    Time of Fireworks

    I wonder if anyone can help

    We are due to visit for 14 days from end April/May 08

    I want to know if anyone knows what times the Wishes, Fantasmic & Iluminations are on or where can I get this information from

    We are going to have the Disney Dining Plan and I am trying to book our table service restaurants for evening dinner but dont want to miss the above events and not sure what time to book the restaurants for as dont want to miss them

    I have printed off the opening times for all the parks from Disney main website. So for example on Wed 30th April MK closes at 9pm so what time would wishes be on for

    Glad of any advice anyone can give as due to book ADR soon & not sure what time to tell them for dinner

    Regards

    PJ

    The official website Walt Disney World Resort - Detecting Browser Properties . . . has a calendar - look for the link near the top right of the page. When you're looking at the monthly calendar, click on the date to see the times for all parades, fireworks, and special events that day.

    The best info will be found on the Disney calendar: Walt Disney World Resort - Detecting Browser Properties . . .

    Wishes and Illuminations are generally at park closing. So, on the 30th when MK closes at 9pm, there is a 98% chance that is when Wishes will be shown. Same with Illuminations. Fantasmic usually keeps that same rule of thumb, but in busy seasons they have two performances. That's why it's always best to keep an eye on the calendar (link provided) for changes.

    14 days...wow! Have fun!

    Magic Kingdom fireworks are at approximately 9pm daily. Many start lining up at 8:30pm though.

    EPCOT! fireworks start also at approximately 9pm, but you will get a good view and dont have to line up early.

    try booking your dinner ADRs in the park you are seeing the show on the days you want to see them, that way, you will be in the park and get to see the fireworks. Hint - Fantasmic fills up pretty fast and you should be in line about an hour before the show starts (i.e. show is at 7 pm, you would need to be in line at 6 pm, try planning your dinner around that).
    Can't wait to go back !!!
