    What time should I reserve for dinner at Cinderella’s castle if I want to be out in time to see the fireworks?

    Hello Katherine, and a very warm welcome to planDisney! 

    Cinderella's Royal Table is a truly magical dining experience where royal chefs serve enticing dishes as Disney Princesses greet you in regal style. I would allow roughly an hour and a half for this magical dining experience. Please know that the area around Cinderella Castle is roped off around 20 minutes before Happily Ever After begins, so you'll need to leave before this time.

    Typically, event times are released around 60 days out (also when dining reservations become available), so you should be able to pixie-dust plan your dining and nighttime spectacular viewing in unison. Let's say that Happily Ever After begins at 8:30 pm. I suggest you book dinner between 6 and 6:30 pm to ensure you can enjoy the music, projections on Main Street, U.S.A. and fireworks that embody this fabulous nighttime spectacular.

    I wanted to draw your attention to the various Dessert Parties as an alternative way to dine and watch the fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park. You can indulge in scrumptious treats while enjoying access to a prime viewing spot. Win-win. 

    Katherine, I hope this information helps you today and that you enjoy making all the enchanting moments on offer at Walt Disney World. We love to talk about all things Walt Disney World here at planDisney, so please keep the questions coming.
