    We want to have dinner at the Magic Kingdom park and then view the fireworks after dinner. Where, and for what time, should we make reservations to finish in time to see the fireworks from a good spot?

    Hi, there!

     Oh my goodness, Sergei - it looks like you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few short days. How exciting!

     I love all the Walt Disney World theme parks, but Magic Kingdom Park is most definitely my favorite. With lots of family-friendly attractions, incredible dining options, and can't-miss entertainment, a day at this iconic park is always magical! It's my pleasure to answer your questions about your upcoming visit. 

     For a dinner worthy of a fairytale, I recommend Be Our Guest Restaurant. You can expect an enchanted meal at Beast's enchanted castle! The dining room is proud to present a French-inspired prix fixe, 3-course dinner menu that is très magnifique

     Does your family enjoy a meal with character? The Crystal Palace not only features a delicious dinner buffet with something to please every palate, but also the fabulous company of Winnie the Pooh and his friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood!

     To be sure you have time to find a great viewing spot for Happily Ever After, I suggest dining at 6:00 or 6:30 PM. You may find securing a reservation this close to your arrival date to be a bit of a challenge, but not to fret! Availability often opens up due to last-minute cancellations. You can check for availability online, by calling (407) WDW-DINE, or by stopping by the hostess stand as a walk-in. 

     My family never misses an opportunity to see Happily Ever After while we're visiting Magic Kingdom Park. This nighttime spectacular is the most magical way to top off a day of pixie-dusted adventures! We like to find a viewing spot at least an hour prior to showtime. To help pass the time, we picnic! We grab a tray of hot dogs, French fries, and lemonade from Casey's Corner and settle down on the Plaza Gardens while we wait for the show to start. It's our favorite Disney tradition!

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sergei. We're wishing you the most magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
