    Will be at DisneyWorld Orlando - 2/17 - 2/21, with 6 year old twins boy/girl. I know it's late - still planning! Overwhelmed. Are there any restaurants where we can go for dinner and have a view of the fireworks? Dinner shows? Thank you so much!!

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Haya!

    Oh, my. Your visit to Walt Disney World is just around the corner; you must be so excited!

    I see that my Disney Parks Moms Panel buddy Rayna answered your earlier question about dining and healthy meals, so I am going to build on her suggestions in helping you with this one. We've got you!

    For a great dining experience with lots of character, try 1900 Park Fare's Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner. Located at your hotel Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, many Guests enjoy dining, then view Magic Kingdom Park's spectacular Happily Ever After right there from the resort. 

    My family's favorite resort dining choice---just a short monorail ride away from both Magic Kingdom Park and your resort hotel--is California Grill. The view of Magic Kingdom Park fireworks from the restaurant is spectacular, and the observation deck offers an even better view, should you wish to venture outside. As for the menu? Oh, my goodness...you'll dream about it later that night. :-) 

    For a great view of Happily Ever After from inside Magic Kingdom Park, try a delicious buffet at The Crystal Palace, where Winnie the Pooh and Pals meet you at your table. You will be finished your meal in about an hour, so time the end of that dinner for about 30-45 minutes prior the start of the fireworks. When you exit the restaurant, it's just a one-minute walk to some prime viewing locations directly in front of Cinderella Castle.  In addition, Tony's Town Square Restaurant is another great dining location that is just steps away from one of our favorite firework viewing locations: right in front of the Walt Disney World Railroad - Main Street, U.S.A. Station.

    Two fantastic Dinner Shows--Guest favorites--are Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show and Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. Both are top-notch!

    Keep in mind that Guests adjust their travel plans as dates get closer, so if a reservation is not available today, check back again. Someone else's cancellation could be your ticket to your favorite experience yet!

    Send more questions as you plan, Haya. We love to help!
