    We are excitedly retuning to Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party! Can u tell me the best restaurant that will be open to watch the parade and or the fireworks? We are super excited!

    Hi Brande!

    You are going to love Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP)! You are correct that not all of the restaurant's will be open during the party, so it is definitely smart to plan ahead.

    During MVMCP, Pecos Bills will be open until 10:00 p.m. and that is my absolutely favorite place to eat at Magic Kingdom. The location will not get you close to the fireworks and parade, but you can plan to eat there early in the evening and then enjoy the festivities.

    If you are looking for a great place to eat while enjoying the parade on Main Street and a view of Wishes over Cinderella Castle, I recommend Main Street Bakery. Despite the name, it is more than a bakery, they have wonderful sandwiches to choose from as well. You won't be able to see the fireworks from inside, but you can take your food and eat it while securing a prime spot in front of this location. Just make sure to score a seat early because Main Street fills up fast with those wanting a front seat view of the show.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
