    I have a reservation for Cinderella's Royal Table at 7 pm and the Happily Ever After fireworks show is scheduled to start at 8:30. Assuming we'd be done with dinner by then, would we be able to watch the fireworks right outside the castle?

    Hi Susana!

    I think the only thing that can make a magical princess-filled dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table even better is being able to watch Happily Ever After right after your meal!  

    Once you finish your meal, you can go right outside to view the fireworks!  Although there may be crowds, you should still be able to find a place to stand to watch the lovely spectacular!  I do highly recommend finding a place to watch the show in front of Cinderella Castle because as the fireworks are lighting up the sky above, the front of the castle comes alive and becomes a part of some of your favorite Disney stories right before your eyes!  

    My two favorite places to stand in Magic Kingdom Park to watch Happily Ever After are next to the statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse right in front of Cinderella Castle in the hub of Magic Kingdom Park, and by the flagpole near the entrance of the park.  When you are closer to Cinderella Castle, fireworks surround you, and you can see more of the pixie-dusted details, but from farther away, you get to see Cinderella Castle and all of the fireworks as one big sparkling masterpiece!  Every view gives you a different perspective and a uniquely magical experience, so no matter where you choose to watch Happily Ever After, I am sure it will leave you with a smile!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
