    Is Narcoosee's a good bet for dinner to see the MK fireworks? I have a 7:30 reservation (the earliest I could get - and yes I am 178 days out from our trip!) We will be there in Oct. (8pm fireworks.) How long does the firework show last? Thanks!

    Hi, Kelley!

    I see that you're planning an October trip to Walt Disney World Resort! I personally think there's something really special about visiting in the fall. It's my family's favorite time of year with two awesome seasonal events: Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

    You're going to love dining at Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa!  Narcoossee's is a Signature Dining location and a great bet for both a delicious meal and Wishes fireworks viewing. You will also be able to see the Electrical Water Pageant floating by on the Seven Seas Lagoon.

    I recommend arriving at the restaurant 20-30 minutes in advance of your reservation time, if possible. I would (very nicely) ask the host/hostess if your family could be seated at a window table facing Magic Kingdom (if one is available). While you can see the Magic Kingdom fireworks from just about any seating location in Narcoossee's, a table right next to the windows will give you the best view from inside the restaurant. There are also lovely panoramic vistas from the exterior verandah. You may be able to request of your server that your next dining course be held while you step outside on the verandah to watch Wishes. 

    Wishes Nighttime Spectacular lasts approximately 12 amazing minutes. 

    Enjoy your dinner at Narcoossee's, Kelley - and I hope you have a great view of Wishes! Please let us know if we can assist you further with planning your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth!
