    Hello! Am bringing niece (3) & nephews (8 & 10) to WDW and is their 1st time. Hope you can help Questions: 1. what is best Char brkfst dining? 2. Where is best to see fireworks for each park?

    Hello there Giselle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We're glad you're here! How exciting you are introducing your niece and nephews to the "Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time! What a fun aunt! 

    My family has created so many magical memories at Character Dining Experiences! My children love being able to enjoy a delicious breakfast while being greeted table-side for photos and autographs by their favorite Disney Characters! Our personal favorites include Chef Mickey's featuring the "Fab 5" at Disney's Contemporary Resort and 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast at Disney's Polynesian Resort, which features Lilo, Stitch, Mickey, and Pluto. Guests may begin booking Advanced Dining Reservations for Character Dining Experiences 180 days in advance by calling Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or by going online here

    My favorite spot to watch Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park is at the end of Main Street, U.S.A. closest to Cinderella Castle. At Epcot, my family likes to watch IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth along the lagoon between the Mexico and Norway Pavilion. We have found there to be minimal obstructions in this area. I also enjoying watching from the Showcase Plaza, between the two gift shops. The key to finding the best location for both nighttime shows is to grab a spot early. We usually grab a spot at least 45 minutes prior to the start. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to visit me again with any additional vacation planning questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Giselle!

    Happy Planning!
