    Hi My family and I are visiting in early February. One night we have 8:15 p.m. reservations at LaHacienda Restaurant. I understand you can see the firework show in Epcot - how can we get window seats?

    Hello Bernadine and thanks for bringing such a great question to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    It sure sounds like you've made a super start on your February 2019 plans to visit the magic of Walt Disney World Resort with a delicious and well timed Advanced Dining Reservation at La Hacienda de San Angel at Epcot.  In my opinion La Hacienda de San Angel would be one of the nicest dining spots for your family to catch a spectacular performance of the iconic IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth before it sadly comes to a close during the second half of 2019.  Although of course I'm ridiculously excited to know what extravaganza will be created by Disney Imagineers to replace it!
    In my own experience of trying to snag a great table with an enviable fireworks view is to simply ensure any Advanced Dining Reservations are made within a good time-frame to allow your party to be comfortably seated within at least 1 hour (if not a little longer) of the scheduled firework performance time; schedules can be checked via this handy Park Hours & Calendars link.  
    Plus upon arrival at the restaurant podium I always make my polite request for table which benefits from a nice view and explain that I'm willing to wait a little longer to be seated if it improves my chances of availability. However we must always bear in mind that requests at Walt Disney World Resort can never be guaranteed but in my past experiences Cast Members have done their very best to accommodate my wishes based on their current seating availability.
    Have a great Disney day.
