    My family has booked our WDW trip for 12/31-1/6, and we would like to see the lights and shows in the MK. I was wondering if new Cinderella's Royal Table is open on New years eve night? and if so what would be the best time for dinner? Thank You

    Hi Melinda!

    Cinderella's Royal Table will be open New Year's Eve.  If you want to be able to see the fireworks, I'd schedule dinner for either after their scheduled performance (park calendar should be released at the beginning of June), or for no less than 3 hours before their scheduled performance, as the best view is not inside the castle. 

    New Year's Eve is one of the busiest times at Walt Disney World, and it's not uncommon for it to close to further admittance due to reaching capacity (they have different levels at which they begin denying guests--guests with dining reservations are factored into those levels), so make sure you get there early, AND you get those dining reservations early!

    Have a magical vacation!
