Some of the best sushi I have had with an awe-inspiring view of the Magic Kingdom's fireworks display. Tremendous Filet as well. No trip to Disney is complete without an (extended) evening here.

The only reservation that I could get was for 9:35pm, it will be our first trip. I was really hoping to see the fireworks from this location, will I still be able to? Can we get there a little early and go on the observation deck while we are waiting for our table and watch the fireworks?

Yes. And even if your seated, you can either watch from your table or go outside on the roof and watch. The wait staff will accommodate whatever you choose.
