Disneyland Forever Fireworks Viewing: Main Street

Hello lovely readers!It has been about a month since the premiere of Disneyland’s new fireworks spectacular, Disneyland Forever and I am still obsessed with it.  One of the cool things about the show is that there are multiple areas around the park where you can watch the fireworks and experience the different projections.  Each area has its own little twist and unique moments and I have made it my summer mission to watch from all the different angles and report back to you.

Today, we are taking a look at the most popular viewing area, Main Street.  One of the best parts about Main Street is you can watch the Paint the Night parade right before, and then just move into the middle of Main Street for the fireworks right after.  It is super convenient if you are planning on watching the parade too (and you should).  The projections on Main Street are also totally immersive, since you are surrounded by the buildings…

There are also sections of the show, like the Little Mermaid section, where you have effects on the roofs of the buildings…

And in general, you get a cool look at all the different projections throughout the show…

As for the fireworks themselves, you have a pretty unobstructed view from the middle of the street.  They are high enough to not be hidden behind any trees and there are no buildings or rides blocking your view.

It’s pretty obvious why Main Street is the first choice for most people when it comes to fireworks viewing.  You can see the fireworks themselves, there are tons of projections, and it is convenient after watching the parade.  The main downside of Main Street (in my opinion) is that while you can sort of see the castle, you can’t see any of the projections on it. You get little glimpses and teases, but nothing is fully visible.  Also, getting out of Main Street after is tricky as it is super crowded and you are dealing with people trying to exit the park while others head back in to ride rides.  I would recommend Main Street viewing for first timers, but make sure you check back regularly over the summer for full reports on all viewing locations!  What’s your favorite spot to watch the fireworks from?
