Thumbs up

Thank you guys!!
I'm guessing we're going to see some amazing fireworks everywhere.
But at least I know the top ones to make my priority!

I am REALLY hungry for Hallowishes right now!
(Is it wrong I'm more excited about them for ME than for my little cousins?? jajaja!)

Thank you thank you!!

Smile Hallowishes is great!!

The castle lighting, the music the atmosphere makes this one the tops! Second in my book is Epcot's Illuminations. It's a wonder that more people do not know about Hallowishes!

Hallowishes is just incredible! Definately my favorite.

The only thing that comes close for me is the 4th of July Fireworks. Both the Magic Kingdom ones, which are totally different from Wishes, and the Illuminations version they do for the 4th. They seemed extra big, extra loud, and the tag at the end is very special.

I'm going to vote for Wishes, but the bump over the other fireworks is because I truly love the "Let the Memories Begin" show before it--cheesy, but it made me cry to see all those little kids having so much fun!

I forgot about this one...now I'm torn--that one is so uplifting and strikes just the right note at Christmas!

Hallowishes! Although, Illuminations with the "Let There Be Peace on Earth" tag for the holidays is amazing!

It's a toss up for me;
Wishes because it's classic...and tugs at your heart.
Hallowishes for the wow factor. The finale really lights up the sky, it's amazing.

Another vote for Illuminations with the extra Chistmas piece at the end.
