It has been so long since I went to WDW, I’m not exactly sure how to word this question. It’s about trying to find a place to stake out for the MK fireworks. (They’ll be HEA when we’re there in September, and I’ve never seen that particular show.)
'Way, 'way back, when we used to go to WDW regularly, I would stake out a table at the lower terrace in front of the Plaza Restaurant.
By 2004 or 2006, that terrace was roped off and was a preferred viewing section for, I think, American Express card visitors? I’m not sure. I don’t remember. I do remember staking out a place on steps to that lower terrace from the Tomorrowland Terrace restaurant area.
Now… from looking at maps, it looks as if the lower terrace doesn’t exist at all any more. It looks like the whole area has been elevated and expanded to add several rows of tables and chairs with yellow-and-white-stripped umbrellas. That’s lovely. People have to eat, after all.
There are no trees at the hub… It looks like there are astroturf patches of fake grass around the hub? OK…
So… Can I stake out a table in front of the Plaza Restaurant for the MK fireworks? Or are they reserved for somebody more special than I am?
I was really kind of hoping that dessert parties would come back before I arrive, but I think I’m out of luck. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I am an old lady with bad knees who can’t easily sit on the ground or get up from sitting on the ground, so I would prefer to be seated at a table if I’m going to have to snarl and growl at interlopers while I wait for pyrotechnic greatness.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!!!
