Yes from Narcoossee's.

Maybe from Ohana: there are only a few tables next to the windows here. You are just as likely to be seated in an area with no view at all. If you really want to see Wishes from the Poly, make your ADRs at Ohanas so you can be finished your meal and down on the beach before the fireworks start.

even narcoossee's, i wouldn't expect to be able to see wishes from inside the restaurant. i don't think it's uncommon for people outside to be blocking the views from the windows. YMMV.

We've been on the boat from Narcoosees to Mk during the fireworks and it was fun.

Narcoosees has a patio to walk out on, if you can't see from your table.

You can see Wishes from Ohana and they have the music piped in - we get a late ADR just for this purpose

For Narcoossee's, I don't know when you plan to go, but if the weather is on the cold side, nobody stands outside and the view is great of the fireworks. Also, they really lower the lights and pump in the music. I liked it better for fireworks than CG.

We love watching Wishes (or Hallowishes) from Narcoossee's. We've had a table by the window and even with people outside it wasn't bad, unless they were standing right up against the window. We stood on the deck once since we didn't have a seat at the window and that was really nice also. I haven't been to Ohauna while the fireworks were going off so I can't really tell you what that's like.

'Ohana can be nice if you have a table by the window or where you can see the window. If you're in the middle of the room you would probably need to stand up and get behind the next line of tables. There is an area of the restaurant where you cant see at all and would have to stand up and walk to where you could see. If you wanted to go outside and watch you would have to leave the restaurant, go downstairs and walk out to the beach, so it's not suggested you do this until you've finished at 'Ohana...

It's at a bigger distance than Narcoosees also.

length of dinner

How long does a dinner run at Narcoose's?

I have an 8pm ADR next Saturday night and Wishes goes on at 9 that night. It would be awesome to see it.

Do they really pump the music into Narcooses?!!

We find that at most of the signatures we will spend around 2 hours for dinner- usually a pre dinner drink, appy, main course, dessert and coffee. So 8:00 would work really well for you.

Yes, the sound track for Wishes is played over the speaker system in the restaurant at Narcoosees and at Ohana. It is also played on the beach at the Poly, and at CG.

You can from certain tables. We were there last night for my birthday and we were able to see it from our table.

Yes but there is no guarantee that anyone will get one of those tables.
