    Where would it be best to have dinner, Crystal Palace or Tony 's Town Square if we have an ADR at 7pm and want a good place to watch parade and fireworks? Thanks , Moms Panel is excellent.

    Hi Maria!  You can't go wrong with either of those fantastic choices!

    However, as a personal preference, I will go ahead and suggest the Crystal Palace, for a couple of reasons.

    First of all, the Crystal Palace does a wonderful job with their Character Dining Experience with Pooh & Friends, and the buffet is plain ol "yummy in my tummy", as Pooh says!

    Second, the location is key:  the Crystal Palace is located close to "the hub", which is the center forecourt in front of Cinderella's Castle.  This is a great place to see the Parade and the Fireworks.  We sometimes scurry on over to the Tomorrowland side to get a better look at Tinkerbell as she takes her flight from the top of the Castle to "light up the sky" with fireworks!  This is easier to get to from the Crystal Palace, especially as this area and Main Street, U.S.A. become extremely congested during this time.

    If you are concerned about being able to leave the Park very quickly after the Fireworks, however, then Tony's Town Square is much closer to the exit, and would be the best choice in this case.

    I hope this information is helpful as you make your plans.  Have a magical time at Walt Disney World!
