Watching Wishes Solo

I have a solo day at Magic Kingdom. Thinking of watching the fireworks. Any advice on where I should watch from? Park? California Grill?

I'd say the park...as a solo you can really move around and just get into places a group could not.

I showed up at 5 minutes before and was able to stand in the middle of main street since I was solo. Just remember to look behind you and make sure your not blocking a kid or someone in a wheelchair

Could not have done that if there were a few of us.

I watched from the Rose Garden one evening and from one side of the Hub another.

Enjoyed being in the Rose Garden as it was very relaxed and comfty to sit on the grass.

Watching from the Hub was good because it meant easier access back into adventureland to get on POTC and Jungle Cruise before the crowds got there and I was easily able to get back to Main Street for the parade
