    We have dinner reservations at Be our Guest in the Magic Kingdom at 8:35 pm, will be able to be done and then be in a good viewing area for the Wishes fireworks at 10:00? Its our first trip to Disney World!

    Hi Debbie,

    You are going to love dining in Be Our Guest. The food is superb, and the decor makes you feel as if you have stepped right into the Beast's castle.

    I usually allow an hour to an hour and a half for a nice table service meal, so you should be finished near the time the fireworks begin. You will want to be sure to allow time at the end of your meal to greet the master of the manor if he is there.

    To give you a bit more time, I'd suggest checking in at by 8:15 or so on the chance that you can be seated a little early. And you can tell your server that you hope to catch Wishes. He or she can help you pace your meal accordingly.

    You don't want to feel hurried, through. Make sure to enjoy the ambiance and the food. And don't miss dessert.

    Experiences vary, based on crowd levels, but I can tell you that my family had an 8:50 reservation on Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed a leisurely dinner. We exited Be Our Guest shortly after the fireworks show ended.

    Because you will be leaving the restaurant about the time the show begins, I recommend planning to watch from anywhere in Fantasyland that you can find a spot. One of my favorite fireworks memories is sitting on the ground near the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel with my niece on her first Magic Kingdom visit. It felt as if the show was reigning pixie dust right down on us.

    I hope that is helpful. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions as you plan your visit. Enjoy!
