    We are booked at the Poly. We arrive on Nov.15 around 3:00. We want to make ADR for Ohana and then watch the Elec Water Pageant and Very Merry Christmas Party fireworks from the beach. What times are the pageant and fireworks? Best time for dinner ADR?

    Hi Michele!

    Sounds like you've got some wonderful activities planned for your arrival day!  In the past, the fireworks for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party have been scheduled for 9:30 pm.  The Electrical Water Pageant should be at Disney's Polynesian around 9 pm. (please keep in mind that the schedule can vary and the show can be canceled for inclement weather).  I'd aim to be on the beach and ready by 8:45 pm. 

    I'd book my 'Ohana reservations for no later than 7:30 pm, and I'd make sure to check-in at the podium 15 minutes prior to my reservation time.  If you finish early, you can check out the resort, hang out on the beach, or do some shopping.  Keep in mind that if the weather is favorable, other resort guests might have the same great idea!

    Have a magical vacation!
