No, really. You do not want to be downwind and get all the smoke from the fireworks coming at you. Even if it doesn't affect your breathing it blocks your view.

So, check which way the wind is blowing, then find a place where the wind is at your back or side that isn't blocked by trees, sit, and enjoy!

I completely agree with Rich, You do NOT want to be upwind.  One year we were completely engulfed in smoke not to mention the fallout.  There are plenty of great veiwing spots.  A few of our favorites are:

*The bridge between Future World and Mexico right around the corner from Cantina De San Angel (I left my hubby holding our spot and slipped over to get a couple margaritas & churros for while we were waiting)

*The bridge between France and the International Gateway (I wandered over to Boulangerie Patisserie, the pastry shop in France, for munchies & coffee that time)

*The area beside the reserved handicapped viewing area between Canada and Showcase Plaza (We sat here on the trip when I was pregnant because it is very close to the restrooms.)
