    What is the best spot to watch the magic kingdom fireworks from outside the park?

    Hi Lauren!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You will love Happily Ever After - the fireworks display at the Magic Kingdom Park.  The show also includes some amazing projections onto Cinderella Castle, which are best viewed from within the park, but the spectacular fireworks can be seen from several nearby spots around Seven Seas Lagoon.  I would make a dining reservation - for a couple of hours earlier - and then view the show afterwards.   At Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, I would choose Narcoossee's - a favourite lakeside spot of mine, with a viewing deck just outside.   Or California Grill on the 15th floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort which has its own observation deck.  Another great spot is from the beach, at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, after dining at 'Ohana or Kona Cafe.

    Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, online, by calling (407) 939 3463, or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.   The show time for your arrival date is currently 9.15pm, but please note that times are subject to change.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
