Want A Disney Fireworks View While Eating Dinner? Visit These Restaurants

Disney fireworks are spectacular. Many Guests highly anticipate the Disney nighttime spectaculars they will enjoy during a visit to Walt Disney World. Generally, you will likely plan to watch the Disney fireworks inside a Disney Park. However, you may wonder if enjoying a dinner with a fireworks view is possible. Several Disney restaurants offer just that. Whether you want to celebrate something special, enjoy a date night during your Disney vacation, or escape the crowds, consider dining at the following Disney restaurants. 

California Grill

California Grill is arguably the best restaurant in the Walt Disney World Resort if you hope for a fireworks view. Located on the 15th floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, you can enjoy panoramic views of the Walt Disney World Resort. In particular, you’ll get spectacular views of Magic Kingdom Park, Seven Seas Lagoon, and the surrounding Disney Resort hotels. Should you be eating when Happily Ever After begins, your view of the fireworks will be enhanced by the dimming of the lights in the restaurant. Alternatively, between courses and at the end of your dining experience, you can watch the nighttime spectacular from the rooftop terrace. Wherever you view Happily Ever After from in California Grill, the music is piped in, offering you an incredible viewing experience.
