    We are planning a visit. Do I need to make a reservation for the fireworks? Also, is there any restaurant where I can dine while seeing the fireworks?

    Hi Linda! 

    One of my favorite Magic Kingdom experiences is seeing Tinker Bell soar from one of the Cinderella Castle spires over the crowd. I'm ecstatic that the Happily Ever After Fireworks Show has returned. The fabulous Epcot Forever is also currently bursting over the World Showcase Lagoon.
    Fireworks are visible inside and outside the park and require no reservation. Entry into the theme parks, however, does require a reservation through the Disney Park Pass Reservation System. If you have a Park Hopper, you may visit a second park for evening fireworks, no reservation needed. Capacity restrictions apply, but my family has not encountered any limitations with park hopping.

    For an enchanted evening, try a Signature Dining experience topped off with a view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks. A meal at Cinderella's Royal Table inside Cinderella Castle is an iconic Disney experience that will allow you a enchanting view of the fireworks. Do know that from this vantage point you will not be able to see the castle projections.

    Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa has a deck for viewing the Magic Kingdom show. My top choice is the California Grill atop Disney's Contemporary Resort. The balcony here offers spectacular views with the music piped in through speakers. This restaurant is perhaps my favorite Disney dinning spot. All three of these dining choices require a Dining Reservation.

    For a unique way to enjoy Epcot Forever or Happily Ever After, consider a Fireworks Cruise. Complete with a captain, snacks, and soft drinks, this voyage sails you to a water view of the fireworks- a fairy tale event for your vacation.

    Wishing you brilliant, night skies during your visit!
