    Hi Moms (and Dads)! My hubby and I are coming in September and want to make reservations at Narcoossee's for our anniversary. What time should we try to make our reservations for if we want to be able to see Wishes from the restaurant? Thanks!

    Hi Sue!

    Congratulations on your upcoming wedding anniversary!  Walt Disney World is a great place to celebrate and I think a romantic dinner at Narcoossee's is a practically perfect idea, especially if you're able to enjoy the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular while you dine. In fact, that's exactly how my husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary! The dining room gives you a wonderful view of Cinderella Castle and the fireworks, and with the lights dimmed and the music piped in during the show, it's nothing short of magical.

    It's been my experience that dinner there takes 1.5-2 hours, so I'd recommend making your reservation for an hour before Wishes is scheduled to begin. I'm not sure what specific date you had in mind, but it looks like the show is currently scheduled to start at 9:00 p.m. on these dates around when you'll be arriving:

    September 26, 2015
    September 28, 2015
    September 29, 2015
    September 30, 2015

    Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is scheduled for the other dates below, and on those evenings, the usual fireworks show is replaced by Happy HalloWishes. I haven't seen the schedule for this year, so it could be different for 2015, but in the past those fireworks have started around 9:30 p.m.

    September 25, 2015
    September 27, 2015
    October 1, 2015
    October 2, 2015

    When you make your reservation, be sure to have it noted that you'll be celebrating your anniversary and you might be surprised with a little pixie dust during your meal. Also, be sure to confirm fireworks times as your trip dates get closer to be sure there are no changes.

    Wishing you a wonderful anniversary at Walt Disney World!
