    Hi there! My husband and I are visiting WDW for the first time in April to celebrate our Anniversary. I have dinner reservations at the Plaza restaurant, and they overlap with the 8:55 fireworks. Is it possible to see the fireworks from the restaurant?

    Congratulations on your upcoming Anniversary, Alicia! 

    The Plaza Restaurant is such a lovely place.  It does face Cinderella Castle, but there are some factors that may contribute to whether or not you will see any of the Happily Ever After fireworks.  Just a small amount of tables are against the windows and people outside will likely be standing in your view.  To experience this amazing show in it's entirety, I suggest you plan a night to get close to the castle with a prime view.  Still, if you want the chance of a glimpse from The Plaza, check-in at least 10 minutes early and request a table along the windows.

    Since you are celebrating your Anniversary, make sure to stop by Guest Services for a special Celebration Button that you can personalize.  Happy Anniversary to both of you, Alicia!

    Magically yours in 2018,
