    I have a 6:55pm dinner reservation at CRT, will I have enough time to get a decent spot to view the fireworks?

    Welcome, Jessica, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Congratulations on securing a dinner reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table. This continues to be one of the most sought-after dining destinations in the land. Who wouldn't want to dine with Disney royalty beneath the soaring stone archways of Cinderella Castle? You're in for a magical evening, to be sure.

    Since Happily Ever After appears to be scheduled at 9 p.m. during your visit, you should have plenty of time to dine at a leisurely pace and then find a spot to watch the fireworks over Cinderella Castle. (Be sure to confirm the show time on the Times Guide as you enter Magic Kingdom Park.) It is advisable that you arrive 15-20 minutes early for your dinner reservation and let your server know when you are seated that you'd like to view the fireworks that evening. It will likely be crowded in front of Cinderella Castle when your dinner is over, but it will still be possible to find a place to stand and enjoy the show. If you're looking for a less crowded place to see the fireworks, I recommend the bridge in front of Splash Mountain in Frontierland. If you don't mind crowds, however, you can't beat the view from Main Street U.S.A. or the courtyard immediately in front of Cinderella Castle. As long as there are no trees or lampposts blocking your view of the sky above Cinderella Castle, you really can't find a bad viewing location of Happily Ever After. 

    Enjoy your dinner with the Disney princesses and the magical fireworks display that will follow.

    Best wishes,
