  • Fireworks Viewing vouchers at WDW

    After booking a trip to WDW they sent me all my travel info. Included was vouchers for "preferred standing room viewing of Illuminations and the MK fireworks."

    Since they were free I made the reservations.

    Anyone else do this? How is the view?

      I have never heard of that before, and I have never seen them blocking off a section of the Hub for such viewing... Sounds like a silly idea for a show that can be seen well from so many areas.... same for IllumiNations.

        While I've never encountered the vouchers, there is one reserved seating location I'm aware of for Illuminations. It's at the UK pavillion, next to the Fish and Chips shop, and the view is pretty good.

        Besides that, got me.

          It can't be that. They say there is no seating, this is a reserved standing location.

          They said for me to go to the Plaza Landing at MK and to the Morocco Pavillion in Epcot. I assume the viewing area is there, although it is possible that we check in there and they walk us someplace.

              This doesn't have to do with the thread but, Sweetie, when and where did you get that picture with Jiminy Cricket?

                That is a great location to watch IllumiNations..as long as the winds are not blowing out of the east/southeast of the park, otherwise, you will die of smoke inhalation once the pyro goes off.

                  The plaza landing is not to bad at all for MK fireworks. (for those who dont know, its a seating area outside of the Plaza restaurant down towards the moat). I remember watching the fireworks from there when I went with my family in 2001 (before they started using it for reserved standing)

                  As for Morocco, the only place I can really see them roping off there is the Friendship boat launch.... but that cant hold that many people....

                    Awesome advice!

                    As for J Cricket, I just happened to find him outside Spaceship Earth on a weekday morning in April 2005.

                        We did it for Fantasmic, it was nice because the arena was already full and we still got seats in an closed section.

                          I have never heard of the fireworks vouchers, either. This must be a new program they're experimenting with -- anyone remember the Dinner and Show program for Fantasmic?? I use to do that one all the time until they stopped running it. Has it come back? It was great because we could have a late meal and just walk right into the reserved seating area at the Fantasmic show minutes before it started. That program I get, but the fireworks vouchers???? As someone said before, there isn't a bad place to stand to see the fireworks. I've even watched them from a ferry boat taking me from Fort Wilderness to The Magic Kingdom. The ferry captain stopped the boat in the middle of the lake and we had an excellent view. True we couldn't hear the music of see the castle change colors during the show, but it didn't seem to bother anyone on the ferry!!
                          Hey, enjoy the vacation and let us know how your vouchers turned out!!!!!

                            American Express does the voucher program. As I said on another thread...my girlfriend and I were told to leave an area outside Tomorrowland because the space was reserved for 'American Express' customers. You did a good thing by getting the voucher. If I had know this...I would have gotten one also . Enjoy.

                              How long ago was this? A couple years ago (around 2003) Visa took over as the offical card for Disney.
