I had a very magical experience with the Wishes FP+ viewing at the Magic Kingdom. The area set a side is VIP in every way. It is located at the rose garden on the right of the castle. A very special area – it is a relaxed, sit down (or lay down spot). No pushing and shoving allowed or needed! (Editors Note: Rumor says that this area will not be available after the Hub Expansion is complete).
First, you are led into the rose garden area onto the softest grass. It felt like a velvet rug. Oh, the wonderful feeling of the Mickey Magic grass. And the smell of the flowers was fabulous! I was ready to go on a magic carpet ride. Then the beautiful music comes on with the popping of the fireworks in rainbow colors. The view is so incredible, it was the best view I have ever had for anything in the Magic Kingdom. Then Tinker bell flew right above my head! It almost felt like I could reach out and touch her. It was so magical!
The view of the projection on the castle along with the music – Everyone was singing – Let it go! This made a perfect ending to a beautiful day. I felt like a celebrity in this area. Disney could not have picked a better place for this viewing. To me it is a not to be missed experience – well worth one of your FP+. It felt like a little piece of heaven to me.
