    First trip to Disney June 2010. Made reservations for Rose and Crown 7:45pm hoping to see the fireworks from there (recommended by someone) Extra hours that night but we're staying off resort. Do you think this will be crazy busy? Any better suggestions?


    OK, without knowing exactly what day you made your dinner reservations for, here is my educated guess;

    On June 1, 2010, which has evening extra magic hours, the IllumiNations fireworks show starts at 9pm. Will the park be busy? Yes. Summer time crowds are busy. But they are busy everywhere, so stay for the show. 

    I would then get to the Rose and Crown extra early, say at 7:15. Tell them you have a reservation at 7:45, but are willing to wait it out for a seat on the outdoor deck area.

    IF you get a great outdoor seat, then eat until it is time to watch the show, and count yourself lucky for scoring such a great view!

    IF YOU DON'T get an outdoor seat, enjoy your dinner. Make sure you finish by at least 8:30, so that you can go get a spot to view the fireworks. You won't get the best view, but if you migrate over towards Canada and the Futureworld side, you should be able to get a decent one.

    This fireworks show has a lot of elements, so don't worry about "will I see it all". Instead focus on getting a comfortable spot where you can enjoy the evening, see the fireworks, and take it all in!

    Have a magical vacation!
