    We have dinner reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table at 9:05 pm and the fireworks show starts at 8:30 p.m We really want to see the full show/projections on the castle. Will it be possible? How will we enter the Castle? Any recommendations?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Alexandra. I'm so glad you're here! It looks like you'll be arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort TOMORROW. I'm squealing in excitement for you! And, ok, I'll admit - I'm totally jealous too!

     It sounds like you have a perfectly magical day planned at Magic Kingdom Park. Ending a long day of pixie-dusted adventures with a performance of Happily Ever After AND a dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table sounds positively dreamy! I'm pleased to tell you that you should have no trouble enjoying Happily Ever After and making it to your dining reservation on time. Let's chat about the details!

     I recommend watching Happily Ever After closer to Cinderella Castle than the Main Street, U.S.A. Walt Disney World Railroad Station. Watching the show from the end of Main Street, U.S.A. is lovely because you can see the projections along the street, but watching closer to the castle will make it easier to get to Cinderella's Royal Table. I recommend finding a viewing spot 30-45 minutes before showtime. I know this might seem excessively early, but the earlier you secure a viewing spot, the better viewing spot you'll have! Happily Ever After lasts approximately 20 minutes. The moment the show ends, you'll want to head towards the bridge that leads to Liberty Square. As soon as you cross the bridge, hang right, passing Sleepy Hollow, and walk along the walkway that leads to the back of Cinderella Castle. Stop by the check-in desk for Cinderella's Royal Table, and before you know it, you'll be dining with beloved Disney Princesses in a storybook setting!

     I hope this was helpful, Alexandra. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
