    What are the best family places to eat outside of the park so we could see the fireworks at Magic Kingdom?

    I would choose the California Grill for the best viewing of the Magic Kingdom. However you can also capture some of the fireworks from Narcoossee's at the Grand Floridian and 'Ohana's at the Polynesian. These restaurants all welcome children but they are a bit pricey.

    For a truly family-friendly dining option, purchase your meals at the Grand Floridian's Gasparilla food court, and dine outside at the convenient tables overlooking the marina. You'll be staring at the castle! View the fireworks from this location or simply walk to the dock before the show. The Wishes music is even piped in for your enjoyment. 

    This is one of my favorite spots in WDW! Don't forget to linger for the Electrical Water Pageant show seen on the Seven Seas Lagoon.
