    Reservations at Chief Mickey's for 5:30 with our grandkids (4 & 1 1/2 years old ). Staying at Saratoga Springs & using Disney transportation-is there a place to watch the MK fireworks without going into the park & close to transportation?

    Hi Frances!

    It's so wonderful to have you with us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You are going to love your dinner experience at Chef Mickey's! There is just nothing like enjoying a meal with your favorite Disney pals while the monorail whirs by overhead.

    You can certainly check out the beauty of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular without the need for a theme park admission ticket. If you are a Disney Vacation Club Member, I highly recommend that you make the short stroll over to Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort and tell the smiling Cast Members at the concierge podium that you would like to zoom up to the Top of the World Lounge. This spectacular observation deck and lounge is an exclusive benefit for Disney Vacation Club Members and the view just cannot be topped. 

    If you are not yet in the DVC family, consider a Ferrytale Dessert and Fireworks Cruise! Enjoy an assortment of delectable delights and view the evening entertainment from the glistening water of Disney's Seven Seas Lagoon. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 407-939-3463.

    Another great location for viewing is from the elevated walkway connecting Disney's Contemporary Resort and Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort but the echo can make the experience noisy. 

    Finally, the very best rides along the "Highway in the Sky", the monorail, are during Wishes Nighttime Spectacular. While you will only see a sample, it really is beautiful!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
