    Hello, we are getting married on the 7th November and wondered where the best place would be to watch the enchanted firework show without been in the park ? Many thanks

    Welcome to planDisney, Wesley!

    Congratulations on the exciting news! I'm sure you and your Happily Ever After will have a "practically perfect" time at The Most Magical Place on Earth. What better way to round off the evening than watching Disney Enchantment? If you don't have tickets for Magic Kingdom Park that day, you'll be pleased to know that there are a few other locations to watch the show. Although you won't be able to see the fantastic projections on Cinderella Castle or Main Street, U.S.A, there are a number of places where you can get a great view of the fireworks. 

    My absolute favorite is California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Everything about this restaurant—the food, the drink, the service, the ambiance—is second-to-none. However, the stand-out feature is the view. You'll get spectacular views over Seven Seas Lagoon and Magic Kingdom Park. My wife and I have watched the fireworks from here on a couple of occasions. Unfortunately, securing a dining reservation is really tough. Since you're only a few days out, you'll have to hope for a last minute cancellation. However, I would keep checking between now and then to see if any availability pops up. 

    There are other restaurants that offer views of the fireworks, like Narcoosee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (currently under refurbishment), and 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort (which will also be difficult to get a last minute reservation). 

    I would recommend Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise, which is available on select Wednesday and Saturday nights. You'd be able to enjoy delectable desserts and magical water views of Disney Enchantment. However, unfortunately, November 7 falls on a Monday. Oh, bother!

    All is not lost, Wesley! Here's an idea: Hop on the monorail and go to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Maybe enjoy a celebratory drink at Trader Sam's Grog Grotto. Then try catching a water taxi back to Magic Kingdom Park when Disney Enchantment is starting. I've done this before and it's kind of like getting a free fireworks cruise! 

    I hope that's helpful, Wesley! I hope you have a magical trip.
