    10/10/18 we have a dinner package for Fantasmic! and Blue Bayou. Is there a way to watch the fireworks before our Fantasmic! show at 10pm? Also on 10/11/18 we have reservations at Carthay Circle at 830pm. Can we watch Paint the night parade on the balcony?

    Hi there, Justine!

    Thanks for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your questions. It sounds like you have made some delicious plans at two of my favorite Disneyland Resort restaurants for your upcoming trip.

    You are just going to love the ambiance and food selections for the Fantasmic! Dining Package at Blue Bayou Restaurant. This is one of the most unique dining experiences as you get to watch Pirates of the Caribbean boats float by in a romantic nighttime setting. I highly recommend the filet and lobster dish as this was cooked absolutely perfectly the three times I have had it here! Fantasmic! is scheduled at 9:00 PM and 10:30 PM the night of October 10, 2018, but unfortunately it doesn't look like any fireworks shows are scheduled this evening. If your dining package is for the 10:30 PM showing, you will have time to watch Paint the Night over in Disney California Adventure Park before your show as this takes place at 7:45 PM that evening giving you plenty of time to make it over to Disneyland Park for your show. Keep an eye on the Daily Events Schedule and Disneyland app for all entertainment show times.

    Over in Disney California Adventure Park, the Paint the Night Parade is my absolute favorite parade with its millions of dazzling lights and catchy music. Since this parade is scheduled for 8:50 on Ocotober 11, 2018 it is possible you may be able to view this from the balcony of Carthay Circle Restaurant but not guaranteed. If the balcony is seating dinner Guests then you may not have access to this viewing location. I would plan on viewing this parade on another day of your trip in case you don't get to see it during your dinner. It is not to be missed!

    I hope this helps, and have a Fantasmic vacation!
