    Coming Jan 10-14 for anniversary. I've heard some restaurants have view of fireworks during and/or after dinner. Which restaurants are these and what times should dinner be booked? Thanks in advance!

    Hi, Becky!  Two of the best restaurants to see the Wishes fireworks display from the Magic Kingdom are the California Grill at the Contemporary Resort and 'Ohana at the Polynesian.  Both have windows that offer a spectacular view of the fireworks as you dine.

    For either restaurant, I'd say your best bet to see the fireworks is to try and get a reservation about an hour before the start time of the show.  Something earlier might mean you've finished and moved on.  Something later might mean it's going to be harder to get a table near the windows.

    That's kind of a big point to keep in mind.  There are no guarantees for a table by the window.  You can note on your arrival that you'd like a window seat, and I have known people who have even turned down tables in the hopes of a window seat opening up, but they cannot guarantee the table.  California Grill has an awesome observation deck, just in case you don't have a castle view table, and many people at 'Ohana move towards the windows to get a better view.

    Good luck!
