    We currently plan on going to Magic Kingdom Sunday, but weather may impact that. We have dinner reservations at 6pm at Chef Mickey. If we dont go in the Park is there a spot in the area to watch the fireworks that night?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jerry!

    Boy oh boy, I bet you are bubbling over with excitement that you'll be right in the middle of the magic at Walt Disney World Resort in just a few short days! You're arriving at the perfect time! Not only will you get to experience The World's Most Magical Celebration, but you will also be here during the very beginning of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. This EPCOT Festival is hands-down my favorite yearly event at Walt Disney World and an absolute must-do. Be sure to check it out while you're here!

    It's no secret that the weather in Florida is fickle and unpredictable. It seems to change by the minute! For this reason, I strongly recommend you pack a poncho and umbrella for your park days, especially if the weather shows even the slightest chance of rain. The good news is that if it does rain, it typically doesn't last too long. My husband and I learned this over the years and eventually embraced doing the theme parks in the rain. We throw on our ponchos, pop open our umbrellas, and just go with it!

    Don't let the risk of rain hold you back from experiencing everything your heart desires! Many of the attractions at Magic Kingdom Park are indoors, which means you will still have plenty of fun, exciting things to do and see while you wait for the rain to stop. Fantasyland is a great place to find yourself in a downpour, so maybe plan your day to be in that area during the predicted rain. Peter Pan's Flight, Mickey's PhilharMagic, and "it's a small world" have indoor line queues and are close to one another. Plus, Haunted Mansion and The Hall of Presidents are nearby in Liberty Square.

    Chef Mickey's is the perfect restaurant for the end of your Magic Kingdom Park day, because it's just a quick monorail ride away to get to Disney's Contemporary Resort. You'll feast on delicious all-you-care-to-enjoy fare while watching the monorail zoom by above. Plus, you'll get to see Mickey and his pals while you dine - score! If you decide not to venture back to Magic Kingdom Park after your meal, you do have the option of heading to the fourth floor terrace at the Resort for a great view of the fireworks from there. You can even do a little after-dinner souvenir shopping at one of the Resort's merchandise locations

    Jerry, I hope this information helps put your mind at ease. Whether you find yourself "singing in the rain" or basking in the sunshine, you're sure to have a swell time on your magical vacation!

    See ya real soon,
