    Hi Karen,


    You will love eating at the California Grill at the Contemporary Resort.  Wishes, the Magic Kingdom fireworks are at 10 pm in August when I believe that is when you are coming based on your previous questions.  I would suggest a 9 pm dinner with a window table request.  You can always go out on the balcony when the fireworks are beginning, and I would recommend this.  The view is amazing! 


    I would suggest hitting the Water Parks this trip as well as going to DisneyQuest.  My son, who is 14, just loved DisneyQuest when we were there in January.  This is an interactive indoor (and air-conditioned) theme park in Downtown Disney.  You will have virtual computer games, such as Virtual Jungle Cruise and Pirates in the Caribbean:  Battle for Buccaneer Gold.   There a CyberSpace Mountain where you can design a roller coaster and then sit in a simulator and ride your creation.  There is so much to do here in the 5 floors of fun!  Please let me know if I can help you further, Karen.  I know your vacation will be magical!
