Best time to book Narcoossee's to view Wishes

I want to book an ADR for Narcoossee's for our trip in April and wondered what would be the best time to be able to view Wishes. We have never been so I don't know what to expect as far as being able to see the fireworks.

Dh and I went last September at our reservations was at 8:45. We had perfect timing. It was beautiful also. They turned down the lights and we were able to walk outside and watch them from the porch there and then when we came back our appetizers were there for us. We enjoyed it.

Check what time Wishes will go off during your stay. It varies depending on the date/season. Try to book dinner 45 minutes or so before Wishes. If thats not possible, you can always arrive early and watch Wishes while you wait for your table.

I would try and make your ADR about 45 minutes before Wishes is scheduled to start. Though, I don't think all of the tables have a view, so you may be out of luck. But, you can always ask when you get there.

I booked Narcoossees for 8:25 to see Wishes at 9pm....and then I realized that is was going to be a MNSSHP night and Hallowishes wouldn't be until 9:30. So, maybe I'll see it, maybe I won't, but I'm not going to be disappointed if I don't.

Good luck!!

The first thing is to check what time Wishes is. You can then either book beforehand - we usually go for at least an hour beforehand or, if it's early, you can go for a time just after Wishes. We've done that before in the winter months.

We booked around 45 min before Wishes. We had a window table, but it doesn't make a difference, as everyone from the restaurant goes outside, and stands in front of the windows! So we had to go out too if we wanted to watch.
