Be Our Guest reservation and Wishes

We have BOG ressies for 8:05p in June. I was wondering where would be the best spot for viewing Wishes, since we'll probably just be finishing up right before the fireworks. Will we be able to see anything from the beast castle??

I have seen Wishes from behind the castle (Cinderella's). It is a very different experience from seeing it in front of the castle. Many fireworks are directly above your head or not completely visible, rather than seeing them as they highlight the castle as a central focus point. It's not a bad experience, just not the OOOOOoohh, AAAAAHhhh I get from the front of the castle. It's not the FULL experience I guess. About 1/4 of the way up Main Street is my favorite viewing spot, but to each his own on that! Enjoy your trip!

We watched the NYE fireworks from the Beast's castle bridge. It was phenomenal. Of course the firework show was bigger, but it was a great spot.

We have 6:40 reservations in September and Wishes starts at 8 that night. Will we likely be done with our meal by then? Thx!

It'll all depend on how close to your ADR time you're seated. It's not unheard of for BOG to run behind schedule (15-30 minutes). Once seated, I'd allow between 60 and 75 minutes for the meal (for two to three courses and eating at a normal pace). Add time if you want to meet the Beast after you finish eating. Overall, I'd say it's unlikely that you'd out of the restaurant in less than 80 minutes, but you can make things go a little faster (e.g., reduce the number of courses, order everything at once, ask for the check early, forgo meeting the Beast, etc.).
