    A friend and I plan to spend a day going to resorts to see the Christmas decorations. We'd like to end somewhere where we can look at the Castle but don't plan to go into the Magic Kingdom as the time wouldn't permit it. Where would we get the best view?

    Hi JoAnn!

    To me, the best views of Cinderella's Castle away from Magic Kingdom are Narcoossee's at Grand Floridian or California Grill at the Contemporary. Both of these places offer great food with picturesque views of the Castle.

    You could even look at the boat tours, such as the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage, which departs from the Contemporary and voyages around the Seven Seas Lagoon.

    Both resorts are actually in pristine locations for viewing Magic Kingdom and Cinderella's Castle, so you'll find various areas on resort grounds in general that offer great views as well.

    Have a Fantasmic time at Disney World!
