    Great panel! Our holiday is in Aug 2013. Can I ask which parks do an evening firework display and are there any restaurants we could dine in which would give us a view of the fireworks and what time I should make reservations, please? Thank you!

    Hi Emma!

    The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney's Hollywood Studios offer a nighttime spectacular that is absolutely a "must do".  Wishes is a fireworks show that is best viewed on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom between the train station and Cinderella Castle.  Illuminations is a fireworks show that takes place on World Showcase Lagoon in Epcot.  Fantasmic is fabulous that take place in a special stadium built for the show in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    The only show that can be really viewed from inside a restaurant is Illuminations in Epcot.  Three Table Service restaurants come to mind:  La Hacienda in the Mexico Pavilion, Rose and Crown in the United Kingdom Pavilion, and Tokyo Dining in the Japan Pavilion.  I recommend making an Advance Dining Reservation for 1 hour before Illuminations.  If you want to help increase your chance of getting a really good table and seat for Illuminations, then you might go with 90 minutes before show time.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
