    If planning dinner, at 1900 Park Fare during MNSSH, what time should reservation be to watch fireworks from the beach? Also do you have to be a guest of the hotel to watch fireworks from the beach?

    Hi Pamela,

    The fireworks schedule varies daily. Since I'm not sure when you're traveling, I can't advise you on exactly what time to book your reservation. But you can find out the schedule yourself by checking the park calendar on the Walt Disney World website. To find the fireworks show times, click on the individual boxes inside the calendar and you'll be brought to a more detailed schedule for each day.

    I would make your 1900 Park Fare reservation about an hour and a 1/2 to an hour and 3/4 before the start of the Wishes fireworks. Dinner should take you just over an hour. Then you'll want to walk around the resort a bit and secure your viewing spot.

    There's no need to be a guest of the Grand Floridian to watch the fireworks from there, everyone is welcome. The best spot at the GF is actually on the dock near Narcoosee's restaurant, not on the beach. The music from the show is piped in near the dock, enhancing your experience.

    Have a great time!
