    My husband and I have a 7:45 dinner reservation at the Grand Floridian Cafe. We would love to catch the MK fireworks at 9:20pm from the GF resort. Will we have an issue parking our rental car on property?

    Hey there, Yu Wen! Welcome back to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great planning question!

    Before you know it, you'll be embarking on your next magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. I know you must be getting so excited! Since you have your Advance Dining Reservations all set and you plan on watching Happily Ever After from the oh-so-perfect viewing area at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, it sounds like your planning is off to a fantastic start. Now, let's tie up your loose planning ends so you can sit back, relax and start your pixie-dusted countdown!

    I think you will be happy to hear that since you have a dining reservation at Grand Floridian Cafe, you should have no issues parking in the parking lot at the Grand Floridian. Standard self-parking at the Resort is complimentary for day Guests with a dining reservation, and typically, you can leave your car in the lot for up to three hours to allow time to dine, shop and enjoy the Resort. You should have plenty of time to enjoy dinner and fireworks! What a way to wrap up the best Disney day.

    Yu Wen, while everything at Grand Floridian Cafe is fantastic, I must recommend the Buttermilk-fried Chicken. I daydream about this delicious fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Mmmm. Enjoy!

    I hope this was helpful, Yu Wen, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable upcoming summer vacation. May it be full of food and fun. Stop by any time with any questions you may have!

    You've got a friend in me,
