Guests are piling into the theme parks at Walt Disney World now that fireworks and nighttime spectaculars have officially returned. Guests tend to claim their “perfect” spot as early as possible, whether that’s around the hub in front of Cinderella Castle to get the perfect view of Happily Ever After — or around World Showcase Lagoon for EPCOT Forever.

But, thanks to Bioreconstruct on Twitter, we now have a new “perfect” view of the fireworks — and you don’t even have to leave your couch!

Bioreconstruct (@bioreconstruct) took to Twitter to share a handful of photos this morning, which showcase beautiful bird’s eye views of Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom:

In this next photo, you can see just how far away the fireworks really are from Magic Kingdom. While watching in the theme park, it looks as though the fireworks are being shot off right behind Cinderella Castle, but thanks to its aerial photo from bioreconstruct, you can see they are actually shot off at a distance:
