    Hi Looking for some resteraunt reccomendations to run alongside watcing fireworks / shows in the parks... any tips welcome. Many thanks

    Hi Tracy!

    I assume you mean you want to watch the nighttime spectaculars in the parks while dining.  You really can only do this in Epcot.  In Epcot, you should look into getting a reservation at La Hacienda in the Mexico Pavilion or the Rose and Crown in the United Kingdom Pavilion.  In both cases you want want to make a reservation about 60 minutes before show time (90 minutes if visiting during a busy time at Walt Disney World).  When you arrive at the podium for check-in, explain that you would like a table with a view of Illuminations.  Some guests also enjoy watching the show from Tokyo Dining in the Japan Pavilion, but I have never done that myself.

    I hope this helps!  If this wasn't your exact question, please write back!
