    Hey would you recommend eating at the crystal palace during the time of the fireworks? And can you see them from inside the restaurant or do you have to go outside

    Howdy Emily!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I love the fireworks displays throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, and dining while watching the fireworks is the best!  I am so happy you shared this question with us!

    I love dining at The Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom Park!  This is the perfect dining experience to end the day inside the Magic Kingdom Park.  While dining you might catch a glimpse of the Happily Ever After fireworks show.  If you want to view this entire grand finale to your day, then I would recommend stepping outside of the restaurant so you do not miss any of it!

    I really enjoy dining at ‘Ohana located at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort!  This dining experience is just a monorail ride away outside the front gates to the Magic Kingdom Park.  My family and I love this dining experience while enjoying the Magic Kingdom Park’s Happily Ever After fireworks show.  Make sure to plan your reservation time around the fireworks show.  When Happily Ever After begins, the restaurant will dim the lights and you will be able to view Happily Ever After from the huge windows in the restaurant.  Also, they pipe in the music and all the little touches that bring Happily Ever After to life!  Then after you are finished with dinner you will not have the large crowds and it will be an easy exit back to your hotel.

    There are so many special things to do and see in the month of August!  To stay informed of everything, check out the Disney Parks Blog.  Also, If you have any more questions during your planning, please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Emily!  We love and look forward to helping you with all your planning questions!  Happy planning!

    See Ya Real Soon,
