    Hello Mom's Panel!! I will be taking my 5yr old daughter to WDW in September. We were only able to get dining reservations for Cinderealla Royal table at 935p. Do you know if we would still be able to see the Wishes Fireworks from inside the castle?

    Hi Andrea!

    Cinderella's Royal Table inside Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom is a fabulous place to dine.  I think your daughter will absolutely love it.  Unfortunately, you really can't see Wishes from inside Cinderella Castle.  You might be able to catch "pieces" of a fireworks exploding, etc, but you really can't enjoy the show from the restaurant.

    My recommendation would be to keep your dining reservation, as they are extremely hard to get, and just watch Wishes another night.  If you don't want to come back to the Magic Kingdom, it is possible to watch wishes from the beach at the Polynesian Resort and the Grand Floridian.  Another option is watching Wishes from the California Grill on top of the Contemporary Resort, but that is also a hard reservation to get; if you decide to go with the California Grill, it's not that important to have a reservation during the fireworks.  If you eat there earlier in the day, you just need to show your receipt later in the night to get access to their special balcony to watch Wishes.  By the way, watching Wishes from that location is pretty amazing!

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
