Wishes from Grand Floridian?

Is there a good spot to watch Wishes from the GF? We have seen it several times from the Poly (awesome!) and once from BLT (wouldn't recommend).I wanted to have dinner and then watch Wishes from one of the resorts since it looks like we wont be in MK at night this trip. Thinking of 1900 Park Fare since I can not get 'Ohana, although I will keep trying. TIA

We’ve seen Wishes from Narcoosee’s and had a spectacular view and a great meal (opinions vary on the food). They have a nice verandah to view the show and the Electrical Water Pageant. The music is piped in similar to the Poly. While you are closer to the action at the GF, there is nothing quite as nice as seeing the show from the Poly beach! Have you considered dinner at the Kona Grill if you can’t get ‘Ohana?

p.s. Be mindful of the diners trying to see from inside the restaurant and try not to block the view…

I have thought of Kona but we are not crazy about the atmosphere of the restaurant. We have been happy with the food, just wish is wasn't open to the lobby like it is.

You can watch it from the marina area -- not straight on viewing like at the Poly, but you are much closer to the fireworks from the GF.
