    What would be a good time to dine at Cinderella's table to experience the fireworks from the inside? Thanks for your help, as always. Regards from Down Under! ;-)

    Hello to you Down Under from up here in the Great White North - Canada!

    Congratulations on your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
    I'm so happy to answer your questions for you Karen.

    The best viewing times from inside Cinderella Castle depend upon the time of year of your visit. Based on your indicated arrival date of December 31, 2013 and based on previous years' schedules, the Wishes fireworks are likely to take place at 9:00pm during most of your visit. Into the second week of January, Wishes often takes place slightly earlier at 8:00pm.

    If your plans are to dine at Cinderella's Royal Table during the first week of January, I'd recommend that you consider a reservation time of approximately 8:00/8:15pm. This way, you'll already have been seated and have ordered your meals by the time the fireworks begin. Do note that there's not much of a 'view' of the display itself from inside the Castle - however you'll certainly 'hear' the show and see the sky lighting up around you while you dine! If you're visiting after the first week of January, consider an earlier reservation time of about 7:30/7:45pm.

    Be sure to set aside another evening to fully experience the show from Main Street U.S.A. or from the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage. It's one of my family's favourite ways to enjoy Wishes!

    If you have additional questions about your visit, please feel free to write me back any time Karen. I'd love to hear from you from way Down Under again soon!

    Wishing you a Magical time as you plan your visit to Walt Disney World!
