    We are staying at the Riviera Resort and I was wondering what time I should make our dinner reservations so that we can make it back to Magic Kingdom for the 9pm fireworks.

    Hi, Julie!

    You must be so excited to be staying at Disney Vacation Club's newest property-Disney's Riviera Resort! I also have a stay booked for 2020, and can't wait! Did you watch the DisneyParksLive stream of the opening and dedication this past week? I was in awe of how beautiful everything looked and loved the unique outfits worn by Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy. I can't wait to see them in person when I dine at Topolino's Terrace-Flavors of the Riviera at the Breakfast à la Art with Mickey and Friends. 

    Speaking of Topolino's Terrace-Flavors of the Riviera, I've heard fantastic reviews of Dinner with a View, so you are in for a wonderful culinary experience in a fabulous atmosphere. If you want to experience Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom, I'd plan on being at the bus stop between 90 and 120 minutes before 9:00 p.m. to travel to the theme park, go through security, enter the park, and locate a great viewing spot. That means you should make your way to Disney's Riviera Resort bus stop around 7:00 p.m., so I'd plan on a dining reservation no later than 5:30 p.m. If you arrive early, that's more time to pick the perfect location to view this nighttime spectacular! 

    We are so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Julie! We hope you'll write back soon if you have any other questions about your magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.
