Is there any place where we can sit down and have a late dinner or coffee and dessert and also watch the evening fireworks in DLR? Same goes for parades. Are there any good places to sit and enjoy a meal and watch the parade (this goes for DCA and DL)? I like to be efficient with my time (like most people) so if I can do two things at once it would be a bonus. Thanks!

Oh and I am aware of the WOC and Fantasmic dining options. Not sure if we'll do this this trip.

Plaza Inn is right at the end of mainstreet before the hub but the trees will block your view of the fireworks. You can see most of the parades from there though.

Hmm, any thoughts on getting a light meal or snack at the new Jolly Holiday Bakery, and sitting outside to watch fireworks? I haven't been there since JHB opened, so I'm asking because I don't know. We'll be there in February, though, and it might be a nice way to see fireworks. Trees in the way?

You could when it was the Plaza Pavillion. I'm sure it is a good alternative to the Plaza Inn. They both have some trees in the way but I'd guess the Plaza Inn is better because as I recall the trees on the west side are pretty big.

If you want to eat and watch at these locations, show up early, about 60 minutes before a show starts. Scout it out earlier in the day, because the problem isn't getting a table, it's getting the specific tables you can watch from.
