Where can you get dinner and watch the fireworks at Disney World? Here are some suggestions:
Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom – is an old-fashioned hot dog stand located at the castle end of Main Street. Casey’s Corner’s seating is mostly outdoor and is a perfect spot to eat and watch Wishes.
Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party in the Magic Kingdom – You will not be able to sit because it is a standing room only event, but it does offer a reserved spot for viewing the fireworks and offers desserts to snack on while waiting for Tinkerbell to FLY RIGHT OVER YOUR HEAD! The Tomorrowland Terrace restaurant is closed for this event and a dessert buffet offered. The cost is $15-$35.99 per person and reservations can be made by calling (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463) or contacting your travel agent.
‘Ohana at the Polynesian Resort – family-style restaurant is a perfect place for watching the Wishes fireworks show over the Magic Kingdom‘s Cinderella Castle. When the fireworks are about to start, the dining room’s lights are dimmed and the show’s music is piped in. For the 9:00 Wishes show, ask for 8:00 dinner reservations and request a table by a window. Note: You will not always get your window seat.
California Grill at the Contemporary Resort – is on the 15th floor of the Contemporary. This restaurant is much more “upscale” than ‘Ohana and the menu changes weekly. This is also the very best place in the Walt Disney World Resorts to view the Wishes fireworks show.
La Hacienda de San Angel in Epcot – the menu features Mexican dishes and the back tables are right on the World Showcase Lagoon.
Rose and Crown Dining Room at Epcot’s World Showcase – is a pub-style restaurant with patio seating on the World Showcase Lagoon and is the perfect spot to view the IllumiNations fireworks and laser show.
Reservations are HIGHLY recommended for all of these dining options.
