Fireworks are one of the most magical experiences Guests can have while visiting the Disney Parks. Whether they find themselves at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Paris Resort, or even Shanghai Disney Resort, this traditional nighttime show will be the perfect way to close their visit for the day.
Although different celebrations and COVID-19 measures have caused changes to them, Guests can, again, close their day in the most magical way possible, as nighttime entertainment is gradually making its way back into the Disney Parks, with many beloved shows coming back throughout the year.
However, there is one detail that makes fireworks slightly complicated for some Guests, and that is finding the right viewing spot. While many Guests like to save their place hours in advance of the show, others find it tedious, as it takes time away from their day that they could spend on attractions.
Even when Guests find what they think is the perfect viewing spot for the show, there is always the risk of having the party in front of them somehow blocking the show. TikTok user Skipper James (@skipper_james) gives a humorous example of this on a POV video he posted, where he pretends to be a parent standing in front of you and putting his kid on his shoulders, completely blocking the view of the show for the Guests behind him.
While there is nothing wrong with parents doing this, as everyone should get the chance to enjoy the fireworks show, especially younger Guests, it is something too common and, to some point, frustrating for many. James confirms this belief as the caption on his video reads, “This has happened to you if you’ve been to Disney.”

Fortunately, not only did James voice the problem, but he also brought the solution. In a following video, he shared what he considers “the BEST kept Disney secret!” showing Guests a hack to get the best Fireworks view. He tells Guests that all they have to do is bring a ladder, as it is not on the prohibited item list, and it will allow them to see over everyone’s head, including kids on shoulders.
This is, of course, a joke, as Guests are not encouraged to bring a ladder into the Parks, in addition to security most certainly stopping them for intending to do so. James even stated in his comments, “This video is for informational purposes only, do not attempt” as many viewers started joking about someone actually following his advice, also stating Disney would quickly revise their list of prohibited items once they saw the video.
Check out the bizarre hack below!

While this is all for good fun, we do not encourage Guests to try and bring any items into the Parks that would disrupt other Guest’s visit or their own. Please be aware of the rules and regulations that Walt Disney World Resort and other Disney Resorts set out before arriving, as breaking them could result in being kicked off property, banned for life, or being arrested.
