    I have ADR at Crystal Palace at 7 on Feb. 17 outside. Is this a safe thing to do (i.e. if it is raining)? Also, can we see the parade and fireworks from there?

    Hi Chrissy,

    Crystal Palace is one of my family's favorite Disney World's restaurants. My boys absolutely love the buffet choices and the flan on their dessert buffet is one of my "must-haves" on every trip.

    I am not aware of any outdoor seating area for Crystal Palace but I do know they were doing some recent remodeling. I have not heard of an addition of an outdoor area, so you may be mistaken on this. I can promise you that any outdoor area would be designed to accommodate guests for the weather issues like rain, so there are no worries there.

    In regards to the firework and parade viewing location, while you may be able to see glimpses of the tops of the parade floats from outside the veranda outside the restaraunt, you will not be able to view it from inside at your table. You can walk just a short way down the path and get a location along Main Street if you are finished with your meal. The fireworks will also not be able to be viewed from inside, however you will have a nice view directly in front of Crystal Palace.

    Hope this helps!
