    Hi, I'm looking for places that you can sit and watch the fireworks, rather than be standing in the crowd with everyone else. Do you know where I can look for getting reservations for that? We have passes for Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Magic Kingdom,

    Welcome BACK, Ashlee!

    Watching a fireworks show or nighttime spectacular at Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park is a like a cherry on top of your perfect Disney Day. It can be a lot to find, and then hold, your perfect viewing spot for almost an hour before the start of one of these shows. Luckily, Disney has plenty of ways to ensure that you'll have a reserved spot for every show in each park.

    All of these nighttime entertainment options offer some sort of Dessert Party, most of which are all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet experiences. Happily Ever After in Magic Kingdom Park actually has five options, with two taking place in the park and three from various locations nearby.

    Some nighttime options offer FastPass+ seating sections. I enjoy using a FastPass+ reservation on these reserved seats, but it does tie up your ability to make bonus FastPass+ reservations while you're those parks that day.

    Another way to secure a seat without sacrificing a FastPass+ reservation or accidentally eating too many tasty treats is to book a Dining Package. In addition to enjoying a meal at a specific dining location, you'll receive a VIP seating pass for that evenings show. The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade also offers a Dining Package, which helps minimize your wait time for this terrific afternoon parade.

    I hope this helped, Ashlee, and We'll See You Real Soon!
