The first fireworks display at Walt Disney World took place at the official dedication of Polynesian Village Hotel on October 24, 1971.
Today, they do not have a fireworks show from the banks of the Polynesian, but they have something very special. You can watch the Magic Kingdom's nighttime spectacular, Wishes, from the beach of the Polynesian. Even better, they pipe the music in so you feel as though you are right there on Main Street, USA enjoying the show. As a mom of three little ones with early bedtimes, this is a great way to be sure Pierre and I do not miss out on my favorite fireworks display in Walt Disney World. Plus, it is much easier managing the crowds to get back to your room too!
