    On our first night we would like to watch the fireworks from the beach at Polynesian Resort. We are not staying at any Disney Resort and have no dining reservations. Are we able to park at the Polynesian Resort? Thank you.

    Well hello there, Nicky. It's so nice to virtually meet you!

    To park at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you must either be a Guest staying at that hotel or have an advanced dining reservation for one of the restaurants there. Furthermore, if you have an advanced dining reservation, you are typically allowed to park there for up to 3 hours.

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort has some great table-service restaurant options that you'll want to consider so that you can park at the resort. While 'Ohana is a fan-favorite, it does tend to be a hard reservation to score, especially if you are less than 60 days away from your intended dining date. However, it's usually easier to snag a reservation for Kona Cafe as it's an underrated gem at the resort. I especially enjoy the Crispy Pork-Vegetable Pot Sticker and the Pineapple-Coconut Bread Pudding here. If you have a reservation for one of these restaurants, you will likely be able to enjoy the night-time spectacular from Magic Kingdom, Happily Ever After, from the beach. Just keep in mind that at especially busy times of the year like the July 4th holiday, the beach is restricted to Guests staying at the hotel.

    Nicky, I hope you get to have a great meal and enjoy the ambiance of this classic hotel...and of course, a unique view of my favorite nighttime spectacular!

    Please feel free to reach out with any other questions to help you find your happily ever after at the Walt Disney World Resort.
