Best park to visit on 5 November

We are due to be in Orlando on Bonfire night and am just wondering which is the best Disney park to see the fireworks at. Are they extra special for this night? Thanks

I don't think the US celebrates the burning at the stake of a man who tried to blow up the houses of parliament, but I could be wrong x

I've not been at bonfire night but I can't imagine they do anything different as it's a British thing. I bet they all think we're mad celebrating a failed plot to blow up parliament.

USA does not celebrate Nov 5th ,bonfire night, (was originally the end of the pagan year) as the event celebrates an unsuccesful attempt to blow up the british parliment... USA prefers to celebrate success and do so on July 4th when they successfully kicked us out.

Why do we a celebrate failure?

Since it is only a British tradition there is nothing special. If Wishes is on then I would head there to get my firework fix!

We are usually home a couple of days before Bonfire night but no longer go to any displays here because after only seeing Wishes or Epcot a couple of days before all the British displays pale in to insignificance!

100% Wishes at Magic Kingdom. Illuminations at Epcot is brilliant, until you see Wishes.

My understanding is that they were trying to blow up King James who was due at parliament that day (opening possibly). I think it was another one of those Protestant/Catholic things . He designated it a day of celebration when they failed (fair enough I suppose and kind of a success for him).
I believe it's still quite big in Newfoundland, which is a little bit closer if the OP is really desperate.

LOL July is also a much better time to stand outside watching fireworks! After 22 years in the UK I still struggle with finding any enjoyment in standing in cold rain in a muddy field watching a bonfire or fireworks.

I made a real effort when my oldest DD was 5. I couldn't really explain why the Scouts had built an effigy of Cliff Richard and his Summer Holiday Bus and set them on fire! She was terrified and I felt abit disturbed as we were on the grounds of a Catholic Church.

Have to agree that most Americans will have never hear of Bonfire Night.
