    Our request for patio seating has always been granted at the Rose & Crown check-in podium if we mentioned a birthday. I just learned that HarmoniUS dining packages exist & are now sold out, so is patio seating still possible without that package?

    Hello Bob!

    Welcome back again to planDisney! I have found that the nighttime spectaculars at the Parks are such a special way to end my Disney Parks day. If my children can be awake till then it is also a wonderful moment for them! 

    Now, I love that you found one of the best ways to watch them: having a delicious meal on the patio at Rose & Crown Dining Room! I wanted to confirm before I responded to you, so I reached out to Cast Members and found out that the entire patio is reserved for those who booked the Rose & Crown Fireworks Dining Package. There are no additional seats available for people who have a regular reservation and are willing to wait as they did in the past. I'm sorry that I don't have better news but I suggest you continue to keep trying to see if a reservation booking opens up. This package has a 2-day cancellation policy so I’m betting that somebody will cancel their reservation around then. I asked a Cast Member what trends they are seeing with cancellations, and they said that usually, cancellations occur in the evenings. This makes sense as I make changes to my plans before going to bed all the time! So, keep checking and consider looking for your reservation in the evenings. You just might get lucky! 

    Now, I don't want to leave you stranded without another solution. Ideal viewing spots for Harmonious fill up usually up to one hour before the event starts at 9 pm. It makes it a bit frustrating if you are a last-minute person but I suggest finding a delicious meal earlier in the day, grabbing a bag of fresh caramel popcorn from Karamell-Küche in the Germany pavilion, and then heading over to the Italy pavilion for a pretty good view. I personally once waited till the last minute last year and just found benches near the International Gateway and watched the fireworks. I couldn't see the barges but I had a seat and my kids had space to move around as there were no crowds in this area. Once the show ended I was able to make a quick escape out of that exit. 

    I do hope this helps and that you get your reservation! No matter what, enjoy yourself and make sure to enjoy Harmonious before it ends on April 2, 2023!

    Have a magical day!
