Wishes, Disney's breathtaking 12-minute fireworks display is narrated by Jiminy Cricket and with background music from several Disney classics, and a climactic moment, Tinker Bell still flies overhead from the Castle to Tomorrowland. The fireworks go off nightly during summer and holidays, and on selected nights (usually Mon and Wed–Sat) the rest of the year. See your Times Guide for details. Numerous good views of the action are available, so long as you're standing on the front side of the castle -- get too far off to the side or behind and it loses much of its symmetic and meticulously choreographed visual effect. Disney hotels near the park (Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Contemporary, and Wilderness Lodge) also offer excellent views. You can even hear the soundtrack the show piped in to the ferry to the Ticketing and Transportation Center and at the California Grill restaurant atop the Contemporary Resort.
