    I am going to DISNEYLAND in CA and am looking to make a dinner reservation somewhere where I can have a view of the parade and/or Fireworks while we eat. Any recommendations?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer. Thanks for stopping by with another question for us.

    Unlike at the Walt Disney World Resort, there isn't exactly a place at the Disneyland Resort where you'll have unobstructed views of parade and fireworks while having dinner. Some dining options with obstructed views are outdoor seating at Plaza Inn, Carnation Cafe, or the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe. Please be aware that Plaza Inn has tall hedges, while Guests stand along Main Street, U.S.A. outside Carnation Cafe; these will hinder your view of "Paint the Night" parade, but you'll be able to see the "Disneyland Forever" fireworks. 

    May I suggest the Dining Package available at the Blue Bayou Restaurant, or the On-the-Go Dining Package at Aladdin's Oasis for "Paint the Night"? You'll receive a voucher for reserved viewing areas with the dining packages. While you won't be dining while enjoying the parade and fireworks, you'll be able to experience the nighttime spectaculars with great views. 

    For a splurge, if you happen to stay at the Disneyland Hotel and have access to Concierge Level, a great place to view the "Disneyland Forever" fireworks is at the E-Ticket Lounge. There are snacks and beverages available in the evening, and the background music will also be broadcasting while you enjoy unobstructed views of the fireworks.

    I hope this information is helpful for you as you continue to plan your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. Please visit us on the Panel again if you have further questions.
