    Hi! We are planning our first trip to WDW in Dec. 08. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to eat dinner & watch fireworks?

    HI Michelle,

    I think the best place to eat with an incredible view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks (ahhh, dessert without any calories!) is the California Grill at the top of the Contemporary Resort.  Not only is the view of the fireworks spectacular, but the overall views of the Magic Kingdom and nearby resorts is wonderful.  In fact, Samantha Brown recently featured it in on a show of her favorite things from WDW for the Travel Channel.  It is probably important to share with you that the California Grill is a more costly restaurant, but it is well worth it.

    At Epcot, the fireworks can be seen if you are lucky enough to have one of the outdoor seats at the Rose and Crown at the United Kingdom World Showcase - just ask for an outdoor seat when you check in for dinner.  

    Have a magical trip; December is an wonderful time to visit!
