    We have 3 kids fr 5-13. We are keen to view fireworks both in Epcot & Magic Kingdom whilst dining. We have a dining plan. What are the best restaurants which will enable us to view the fireworks in both parks When booking online, is a cc needed?

    Hi Christina!

    In my opinion, there are no good restaurants at the Magic Kingdom to see the fireworks from while dining.  So Instead, I recommend dining  before Wishes so that you can watch Wishes outside.  My favorite location is just outside Casey's Corner at the end of Main Street.  Wishes is beautiful and definitely a "must see" at Walt Disney World.

    In Epcot, the two best restaurants in respect to viewing fireworks are La Hacienda de San Angel in the Mexico Pavilion and the Rose and Crown in the United Kingdom Pavilion.  Between the two, I prefer the view from the Rose and Crown with its outside tables, as at La Hacienda you are looking through large windows.  Illuminations is spectacular and for many guests, their favorite nighttime spectacular at Walt Disney World.  I recommend making an Advanced Dining Reservation at 7:30 and just staying until Illuminations start at 9:00.  A credit card is not needed for a reservation at either location!

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
