    Hi! This is my family's first time at Disney and we have dinner reservations at Cinderella's Castle at 8:30 pm. Do we need to do anything special to check in for the dinner and we will be able to see the fireworks?

    Hi Natalie,

    You are going to absolutely love dining at Cinderella's Royal Table! It is so enchanting!

    You will want to arrive at Cinderella Castle by 8:15 to check in. The hostess stand is located outside the entrance to the restaurant, in the archway at the base of the castle (on the Fantasyland side).

    Unfortunately, if you are dining during Wishes, you will not be able to see the fireworks. This is an incredible show that you will not want to miss, so I highly recommend that you schedule this in for another one of your evenings at Walt Disney World.

    Wishing you a wonderful first Disney vacation. Please let me know if I can assist you further,
