9) Watch fireworks

You don’t need a park ticket to see the fireworks at Disney.  The Wishes Fireworks show at Magic Kingdom is viewable from the Grand Floridian boat dock. Narcoossees restaurant, also located at the Grand Floridian, receives the audio soundtrack, so you can enjoy the fireworks synchronized to the music. There’s a little bit of delay due to the distance, but it still works. Seeing the fireworks reflect off of the lake is beautiful.

From the Boardwalk, you can walk to the “back door” of Epcot, or over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The walking path begins directly behind the Boardwalk’s Atlantic Dance Hall and continues to Disney’s Hollywood Studios Parking lot. It takes 10-15 minutes. Time it just right and you can enjoy the music and perhaps a glimpse of IllumiNations or Fantasmic!
