    Is there a way to dine and simultaneously watch a fireworks show? Our Disneyland visit starts November 17th.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melinda.

    When you visit in mid-November, Holidays at the Disneyland Resort will already be in full swing. During this time, "Believe...in Holiday Magic" fireworks will brighten the night skies over Sleeping Beauty's Castle. The entertainment calendar has not officially been released yet. I suggest checking on the Disney Parks Blog or Disneyland Resort website as it gets closer to your trip.

    There are a few potential dining locations inside Disneyland Park where you can enjoy dinner while enjoying the fireworks. You can try dining at the outdoor patio of Plaza Inn or Carnation Cafe, and timing your dinner reservation around the fireworks. You may have slightly obstructed views from hedges and plants at the Plaza Inn, or people gathering on the sidewalk by Carnation Cafe.

    Over at Disney California Adventure, you can request to be seated on the balcony of Carthay Circle Restaurant and you'll be able to have a great view of the fireworks above Sleeping Beauty's Castle. The restaurant also broadcasts the accompanying music for diners to enjoy. Again, be sure to check the entertainment schedule (when it becomes available) and make your dining reservation for Carthay Circle Restaurant according to the fireworks time.

    I hope this information is helpful for you, Melinda. Please visit us on the Panel again if you have further questions.

    Have an enchanted day,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
