    I am arriving on Oct. 29th in the late afternoon, I don't want to waste a day at a park what restaurants outside of the theme parks would give me a good view of the fireworks at that time, thats if they are going on?

    Hi Amber! On Saturday October 29th, 2011 Wishes Nighttime Spectacular will be shown at 9:00 PM. There are several spots that will afford nice views of the Magic Kingdom fireworks from outside the park. The beach at Disney's Polynesian Resort offers fantastic views of the amazing fireworks display. The show's audio is piped-in through several ground-level speakers along the sidewalk. Other options include the boat dock and outside observation deck near Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The Gasparilla Grill Patio, located in the same resort, provides some very nice views of Wishes too. The California Grill observation deck on the fourth floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort is my favorite viewing spot for the Wishes fireworks display. However, it is exclusively reserved for patrons of the California Grill and Bar on the same day. If you want to see and hear Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from inside a restaurant, the choices are Narcoossee's, Ohana's, and California Grill. To read about restaurants in Epcot that will afford great views of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth go here. Be sure to make Advanced Dining Reservations by calling (407) WDW-DINE or booking online here. Have a fantastic and memorable vacation at the Walt Disney Resort!
