    If we are eating dinner at the Crystal Palave at 8:40 will we miss the fireworks at Magic Kingdom?

    Hello Dolores!

    The Crystal Palace is a sentimental favorite for my family. It was the very first character meal we brought our children too. At the time, our toddler's bedroom was decorated in a Hundred-Acre Wood theme, and he was so excited to meet all his favorite pals. We try to dine here every time we visit Magic Kingdom Park. The Crystal Palace has a lovely salad bar, and was always a great place to have my children fill their rumbly tummies with lots of fresh fruit.

    Whether or not your dinner will conflict with the Happily Ever After evening spectacular will depend upon the date of your visit. The time of the show varies throughout the year. I recommend taking a look at the entertainment schedule for the date you plan to visit to see what time Happily Ever After is scheduled. The schedule is currently posted through the beginning of September. Do keep in mind park hours and entertainment schedules are subject to change.

    If you are concerned about missing Happily Ever After, perhaps check if your reservation time can be changed. Other guests' plans change all the time, and you may be able to secure a different reservation time. If not, I recommend arriving a bit early for your meal to see if by chance you can be accommodated. As soon as you finish your meal, you will be in an excellent location to watch Happily Ever After right as you exit the restaurant. You may even be able to catch a glimpse of the show through the windows of The Crystal Palace.

    I hope that helps! Please feel free to visit the Moms Panel again with any additional questions.
