Alright, so I need some input. My husband and I are going to Disney in June which means we will definitely be seeing the new MK fireworks show (sad we’re missing Wishes). My husband is definitely NOT a big Disney fan. We’re going because of me. So I’m trying to plan our trip to balance his time in the parks, and I’m working pretty hard to make sure that he has a good time. On MK day, he is going to head off in the early afternoon for a round of golf. Then, the plan was to meet back at our campsite to change for dinner and head to California Grill for a 9pm reservation - allowing us to go up early and either get a table with a view or watch the fireworks from the observation deck and then sit down for dinner.
My new concern, though, is that the new fireworks show appears to be castle projection heavy. So a few questions:
For those who have seen fireworks from California Grill, can you see the castle projections (I believe there were some in the Wishes show)? Obviously they will be far off, but what angle are you seeing?
I’m contemplating moving our reservation to earlier in the evening (like a 7pm) or moving it to another outside of the park restaurant and then heading back to MK and coming in to the park for the fireworks show. Keeping in mind that we don’t need perfect firework viewing, would that be a terrible idea?
I know that outside of the park is never going to be as good as Main Street, but I’m willing to compromise my view of the show if it means keeping my husband from being overwhelmed by crowds and enjoying a pleasant evening together.
