    Can fireworks at the Magic Kingdom still be seen from the observation deck on the 4th floor of the Contemporary Resort if dinner reservations at Chef Mickey's are snagged for 8pm on 7/25/2023 or 7/27/2023?

    Elizabeth! Your question has all the makings of a GREAT Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Chef Mickey’s, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and Happily Ever After fireworks viewing!

    Great job scoring a Disney Dining reservation for Chef Mickey’s! That is a very popular character dining location! Nicely done! The Happily Ever After fireworks show is scheduled to take place at 9:20 PM on July 25 and July 27. With an 8:00 PM dining reservation at Chef Mickey’s, you might be cutting it a bit close. The fourth-floor observation deck is a popular location for viewing the fireworks show from Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Guests will most likely gather early to get a good viewing spot. I would recommend getting to your viewing location no later than 8:30 (at the latest) to secure a good viewing spot. With that in mind, a 7:15 PM reservation time would probably allow you time to enjoy your meal, meet the characters at Chef Mickey’s, and get to your viewing location!

    Elizabeth, keep in mind that the fourth-floor observation deck is occasionally used for private parties. It could be closed to Guests. In that case, you might want to make your way over to the “bridge” that connects Disney’s Contemporary Resort to Bay Lake Tower. This also offers a good view of the fireworks!

    Happy Planning!
