I thought the train station was shut, if not that's where we'll be watching them from tonight, we watched Wishes from there and its a great spot

No it's open but the trains aren't running. It's a great spot to watch from!

It's not as good as being close up and that's the oky negative of being up there. You still get the general gist of it and can see a lot of the projection but obviously not in as much detail. For us the benefits of the elevated position, view of all main street, less crowds and a swift exit at the end outweighed the one negative of not seeing every projection close up but everyone is different.

We've always tried to be in main street for MK fireworks , also the bridge by tomorrow land is go stop but not sure about the projections as we did this for wishes.
In Epcot we stay by UK but if you can get a dinner booked for either rose and crown or use the lounge/ bar they let you in a private viewing area which is great or at they did.
This trip we've booked spice road table as that's a great place to see them too ☺

Think I would be prepared to forego the close up of projections for a quick exit, especially with a 7 year old! Thanks for the tip 👍
