    where is the best place to eat dinner at Magic kingdom and also where is the best place to watch the parade and fireworks

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by to bring us such good questions.

    Jennifer, when it comes to dining at the Walt Disney World Resort, you will find that there are options galore. There are also those fan favorites that are not to be missed! As soon as I read your question, without hesitation, I had an answer! You must try dining inside Beast's Enchanted Castle at Be Our Guest Restaurant. A fan favorite, you need to make this reservation as early as possible. Reservations can be made up to 180-days in advance. You don't want to miss this experience! The restaurant is stunning, with three dining areas that are inspired by the beloved film, Disney's Beauty and the Beast. I was in awe when I first dined here; instantly transported to Belle's world. The attention to detail is unparalleled, and the food, well ask the dishes! It really is delicious.

    Pro-tip! If you can't find a reservation when you first look, don't lose hope! Keep checking back as guests often change plans and you never know when availability will pop up.

    My favorite spot to watch my new favorite firework show, Happily Ever After, is right in the middle of the hub. Try to make your way there about an hour before the fireworks are scheduled so you can get a prime viewing spot. I love being front and center to Cinderella Castle, but not too close, so you can get a really magical view of the projections and the fireworks. I try finding a spot a little further back than the partners statue. Oh, and bring tissues. It is breathtaking!

    Thanks again for stopping by! For any additional planning tips, advice, or questions, don't hestitate to bring them our way. 

    See ya real soon,
