    My husband and I are planning a trip in late November. We want to see the fireworks at the MK but i thought watching them from one of the restaurants may be better for us then crowded main street. Any recommendations as to which restaurant and time?

    If you're willing to dine outside the park, Lori, the California Grill is the very best option both for fireworks viewing and a spectacular meal.  The view from the restaurant is second to none.  They even "pipe in" the music that accompanies the fireworks display; it's like having a skybox (isn't that what they call those celebrity football rooms?) from which to enjoy the show.  I would recommend making a dining reservation for one hour before the fireworks are scheduled to begin.

    If you'd rather stay inside the park, there really aren't any notable restaurant options for viewing the fireworks, but there is a dessert party held at the Tomorrowland Terrace that may offer a less crowded viewing.  Have a great trip.

I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
