    My daughters birthday is July 4th and we wanted to make reservations at a restaurant that we can still get a great view of the fireworks but everything in magic kingdom seems to be booked already. Any ideas so that we can have a great experience for her?

    Hi Sarah!

    Tell your daughter happy birthday from the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    There are several restaurants that offer a spectacular view of Wishes that aren't in the parks. Narcoosees at Grand Floridian offers a great view of Wishes and the Electrical Water Pageant. Ohana in Polynesian also offers beautiful views of the fireworks.

    California Grill is currently closed, but they may reopen by July. If they do reopen in time, this is a great location for watching Wishes, as you can see it from above the Magic Kingdom.

    You can also get a great view of Wishes from the beach at Polynesian and Grand Floridian. That is a great option if you can't score a dining reservation at one of those locations during Wishes.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
