As we were about to eat, the sky had grown dark at WDW, so we talked about how wonderful our meals were and how beautiful the view was becoming as Disney World began to come alive with lights. My spouse ordered a Florida black grouper with cashew sauce and bok choy over basmati rice for dinner. We all really enjoy steak, therefore we chose the oak-fired filet of beef with nicely cooked fluffy potatoes and asparagus for ourselves.

The filet was almost as bright a highlight as the fireworks, which began illuminating the sky above Cinderella Castle halfway through dinner. The most difficult part? Deciding whether to watch the fireworks from our table or go outside on the designated platforms. We snuck out for the very end of the show after stealing a few more bites of deliciously grilled steak.
