    Wishes is at 10 PM on 6/7/2103. Have Narcoossee's reservation that night. Is 8 PM a good time to go for dinner to view fireworks and Electrical Water Pageant from Window seating. Or is that too late to get a window table? What time would you recommend?

    Hi Nicholas,

    The only time I've ever been able to get a window seat at Narcoossee's is when I was seated just as the restaurant opened. After that, it's really a gamble as to whether you'll be able to get a seat right at the window. In my experience, it's completely luck of the draw as to whether one will become available in the correct party size when you arrive. You can always ask to wait, but this is a gamble as well.

    Nevertheless, I think 8:00 p.m. is a great time for your reservation. Your meal will likely take somewhere in the hour and a half range, maybe slightly more if you get several courses and linger over coffee. This means that you'll be just about done with your meal when the fireworks start. You can then go out to the deck around the restaurant to watch. The show music is piped in there, so it's almost like being on Main Street. I have found the view from the deck to be far superior to the view inside the restaurant.

    Even if you're not quite done with your meal when the fireworks start, you will be allowed to step outside (or up to a window) during the show and then finish afterwards. This is quite common at both Narcoosee's and the Contemporary's California Grill. If you want, you can take your cup of coffee or other beverage with you while you watch, and then return to your table.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
