    Hi, My family will be arriving at Disney on New Years Eve. Are there any recommendations on where to eat with great views of the fireworks without going into the park? We will be staying at Arts of Anim. Is there a view from there?

    Hi there, Candace!

    The best restaurants for fireworks viewing would have to be California Grill in Disney's Contemporary Resort and 'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Resort.

    Because these will be in high demand, I recommend trying to grab a reservation as soon as possible. Give Disney Dining a call at (407) WDW-DINE, or try their online reservation system

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort is situated a bit too far from the Parks to allow any views of the fireworks, but should the reservations not pan out, you could consider heading over to Disney's BoardWalk Area for a great slice a pizza and a decent view of the fireworks at Epcot.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
