watching dreams

Coming closer to New Years Eve my kinds reminded me of their fear - fireworks. Well not exactly fireworks, but the sound, big bands, shooting, bombs - like my little one thinks about it.
I don't want to miss Dreams. No way. But I have some questions:

Are Dreams very very loud? Lots of fireworks? Big bangs?
Could you recommend a nice spot where we could see dreams, but not so loud?

I doubt there's an indoor spot for that...

There are quite a few fireworks but they're not loud, at least not in the way regular fireworks are. They're all done in time to the music so there are no unexpected bangs or anything. I know some people don't want to spoil the surprise but you or your children might find it helpful to watch some or all of Dreams on youtube just to get an idea of what to expect.

Thanks. Watching on YouTube is not the same as watching live. Will try. Any spot recommendations?

Speaking of Dreams, I've just watched the new WDW show 'Celebrate the Magic' on Youtube.

I was a bit disappointed with it considering how good Dreams is. It lacks any sense of story and feels like a load of random scenes. It's also missing the fireworks (I know there's a couple at the end) and the fountains of Dreams.

It's nice to see us getting the better show for a change!

I have not seen Celebrate the Magic , but I saw live The Magic, the memories and you.
While I agree with you if you consider this show alone, in the Magic kingdom there is a sequence of Electrical parade, projection and then Whishes. It's a stunning 1-2-3.

they use low, 'silent' fireworks to keep the neighbours happy. I've set louder bangers off in my back garden so I'm sure you'll be fine. Just stand a little further back. We got a great view just left and behind of the gardeners shed
