I have this one from yesterday at Dunkin Donuts.  My comment was just "Why?"

(she didn't appreciate me taking a picture of her car either, lol)

The TCD gang popped over to the MK on July 3rd to watch the 4th of July fireworks.

We expected crowds and carefully chose our spot so that we wouldn't behind Ipad guy or a KOS (Kids on Shoulders) guy.  Or course, that is wishful thinking these days.

Right before the fireworks started, a KOS guy showed up out of nowhere.  And, then the guy right in front of us produced two phones which he used to simultaneously record the fireworks show. I've never seen that done before:

The video thing really gets me.  Put the electronic device down and experience the event in person.  Otherwise, stay home and watch it on TV.  Maybe I'm just an old fuddy-duddy.

And fireworks all look the same.....and I've never said to myself,  let me watch a fireworks display over again. Especially one that someone with much better equipment than I will undoubtedly post on youtube by tomorrow.

How did it look from the Fort or other resorts? Were any Fiends out there?

We watched it streaming on the 4th.  They did a decent job, they have steadily been improving with their broadcasts.

It didn't look like there were a lot of themed projections on the castle, just displays of other fireworks?  ( we were watching it on a laptop 10 feet away so it was hard to see small details)

I saw a picture taken from the Poly, looked impressive.

And what was odd that I found out after the fact, was one of the local Tampa TV stations streamed it, and it was an NBC affiliate.

Worst part was getting out on the 3rd, about a half hour after the fireworks.  They closed the side exits and had everybody heading out through Main Street.  They should have told the multiple tour groups from Uruguay that it is not a good idea to use the middle of Main Street as the gathering spot.  They totally blocked the street between the ice cream store and Casey's.  It was a mad house until we got past them.

We initially headed into Tomorrowland, trying to get away from the Hub crowd.  But, they apparently were directing the crowd that way, as they had the auxiliary exit back by the Buzz exit open.  When I saw that, I headed that way.  That was a very easy way to get out.  I have no doubt that Main Street was impassible.

We were watching from the bridge to Tomorrowland and then headed into Tomorrowland where they were herding people out near Buzz.  But in my infinite wisdom, I decided to walk around a while longer and when we were ready to head out they closed that exit near Buzz.  We then watched the projection show and then went to head out near Plaza Restaurant.  I asked the cast member and he confirmed that everybody was heading out via Main Street.  It would have been fine but literally three or four tour group leaders were standing in the middle of Main Street holding flags that said "Uruguay".  They had all the teens with them standing across the entire width of Main Street not moving.  Everybody leaving the projection show had to squeeze onto the sidewalks.  Nobody was happy with them, including cast members trying to get them to move.  Once we got past them (around Starbucks) it was smooth sailing.

Well worth it though.  Here is the final 3 minutes:

Very nice! Thanks.  We were in Epcot and could see some of the high fireworks from the MK.

We love Epcot because that is where the WWIII barge is located now.  Love the BOOMBOOMBOOMBOOMS  of it.  You can feel the sound all thru your body.  During the last booms the sky is full of little red and white explosions.  To me it looked like the area over the lake was filled with confetti.

I love the ending of Illuminations on July 4th.  You're right, the sound is amazing.  We were planning on trying to see them on the 4th, but we had friends over and didn't make it.  Glad we got to the Magic Kingdom on the 3rd though.

Being able to see the MK fireworks on the 3rd is a treat.
