    Hi; if I have a reservation for Be our guest for 9:35pm will I still be able to see the firework show before dinner?

    Bonjour Maria!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're glad you stopped by with your question.

    I'm so excited to hEAR you snagged a dining reservation to the enchanting Be Our Guest Restaurant. Dining inside Beast's enchanting castle is one of my family's favorite experiences when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Happily Ever After is also at the very top of our "must do" list of experiences. I can certainly understand why you would like to experience both during your upcoming trip.

    Happily Ever After is a spectacular fireworks show at Magic Kingdom Park which lasts approximately 18 minutes. At this time, the Park Hours page indicates Happily Ever After will be featured at 9:15 p.m. during your dates of travel. To be honest, I have found it can be quite challenging to quickly maneuver out of the crowd following the fireworks show. I would recommend securing a spot near or on the bridge leading to Fantasyland in order to exit the crowd as soon as the show ends and head straight to Be Our Guest Restaurant. Although I don't make a habit of arriving late for dining reservations, I have never been turned away if arriving a few minutes past our reservation time. Based on my own personal experience, I believe you should have time to watch Happily Ever After if you will head straight to Be Our Guest Restaurant immediately following the show.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you, Maria. Let us know if you have any new questions as you continue to plan a magical trip!

    Bon Appétit,
