    Thx for your help! Arrive 8/16 @ 5pm. DD 9 & DD12 want to see MK Magic or Epcot Illuminations show 1st night. Any restaurants with good visability for either show? What time are the fireworks at the parks? Girls want to explore parks rather than eat.


    Within the Magic Kingdom there are really no restaurants with great seating for watching the fireworks. You can view them from outside the parks at a few resort restaurants, most notably;

    • California Grill
    • Narcoossee's
    • 'Ohana
    • As for IllumiNations, there are a few choices.

    As for , there are a few choices.
    • Rose and Crown
    • Les Chefs de France (kind of)

    You can also view the fireworks portion of the show from the outdoor seating at the nearby Big River Grille and Brewing Works.

    Wishes is at 10pm
    IllumiNations is at 9pm

    With these later times, I would consider eating wherever you want to dine, and then get to a fireworks viewing site, rather than worry about where you can eat AND see the fireworks.

    Please feel free to send me any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
