Best Places to View Disneyland Fireworks

“it’s a small world!”

The “it’s a small world” location not only offers an excellent view of the fireworks, but has its own mini-show, with projections onto the attraction that complement the fireworks and music.  The best place to watch the fireworks in this area is to stand on the right hand side of the attraction as you face “it’s a small world!”.

Normally, this section is roped off as reserved.  However, if you go right behind the reserved section, you can stand and watch the fireworks and get an excellent view.  I recommend bringing a picnic blanket, so that you can lay it down it and reserve your spot.  The Disneyland Electrical Parade also comes out from this area.

There are two ways to watch the fireworks along Main Street USA.

First, you can save a seat to watch the fireworks by sitting on either side of Main Street USA.  This provides a great view of the castle too.  Just make sure to bring a picnic blanket, because you will have to sit on the concrete to reserve a spot.  People start lining up along Main Street USA about 2 hours before the fireworks begin.

Secondly, if you sit at the end of Main Street USA towards the entrance of Disneyland, you will be immersed in lights and special effects while your eyes are drawn to the fireworks at the end of the street above the castle.  The end of Main Street USA is also a nice location to view the fireworks if you plan to leave right afterwards.

In Front of Sleeping Beauty Castle

There is something awe-inspiring about watching the Disneyland fireworks burst into the shape of Mickey Mouse live in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.  Walt Disney himself is also projected onto the castle.

The best spot to view the Disneyland Fireworks near Sleeping Beauty Castle is in front of The Hub, the circular street surrounding the Walt and Mickey statue.  The Hub is also a nice place to see Sleeping Beauty Castle lit up at night.  People start arriving approximately a 1. 5 hours before the fireworks begin to reserve spots around the Hub.

Rivers of America

During the summer months, the Rivers of America 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 the Disneyland fireworks.  Be sure to check the Entertainment Guide when you arrive, of course, as show times are subject to change.

Enjoy your time at the happiest place on earth!
