    We are going to our 1st family trip to Disney in May and I booked a dinner at the Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom at 8:25pm. Can any moms advise if we are able to see the fireworks inside the restaurant?

    Hi Jessica! 

    The Crystal Palace is my favorite place to dine in the Magic Kingdom and I absolutely love the Wishes fireworks show.  Unfortunately, you won't be able to really enjoy the fireworks while inside the Crystal Palace.  Depending on where you sit, you might be near a window and might be able to catch a few glimpses of the fireworks, but that is about it. 

    If that is your only night in the Magic Kingdom and you really do want to enjoy Wishes, then I recommend trying to get an earlier advanced dining reservation.  If the Crystal Palace is unavailable earlier, another Table Service restaurant that m y family really enjoys is the Liberty Tree Tavern.

    By the way, I think the best place to watch Wishes is on Main Street just outside Casey's Corner; about 10 to 20 yards from Casey's Corner towards Cinderella Castle.

    Good luck and have a magical time!
