    I want to make reservations for Cinderella's Royal feast for January 22, 2012. What would be a good time for dinner reservations if we'd like to see the fireworks from inside the castle? Or it that even possible? Thanks

    Hi Amy,

    It sounds like you have a lovely evening planned for this coming January.  Since the fireworks will begin promptly at 8 pm on January 22nd, I suggest you plan dinner for 5:30 or 6 pm.  After dinner, I recommend that you head out to the central hub right in front of Cinderella Castle to watch Wishes.  Watching the fireworks from inside the castle is inadvisable because, at best, you would have a partially obstructed view.  You would be much better off to see the fireworks from outside the castle. 

    My concern, however, is that if you don't already have dining reservations for Cinderella's Royal Table, you might not be able to get them at this point.  Many guests call 180 days in advance of their arrival to reserve a table at this phenomenally popular restaurant.  You may want to have a second choice in mind when you call (407) WDW-DINE to make your reservations.  Feel free to post again to the Moms Panel if you would like some alternative suggestions.

    Best wishes for a pixie-dusted vacation!
