Seeing the Magic Kingdom Fireworks

Although you won't be able to fully enjoy fireworks as you would up close at the Magic Kingdom park, you'll still be able to catch glimpses of the firework visual spectacle and sounds.

The best place to watch fireworks at Disney Springs is from the top floor of the restaurant Paddlefish as it is conveniently located right on the water.

Best Place to Eat

Our favorite place to eat is hands down, Wine Bar George. Not only do they feature delicious food options, but they also have unbelievable drinks.

On top of that the staff is extremely friendly, and the environment has a very modern and luxurious feel to it.

We visit Disney Springs constantly throughout the year, whether to just walk around, shop, or eat ice cream, but we never forget to stop by Wine Bar George!

This restaurant is extremely popular with both the locals and tourists, so you'll want to ensure that you make a reservation ahead of time.
