    I have an ADR for California Grill, May 5th @7:30. I saw though that MK closes at 10pm and I really want to enjoy our dinner during the fireworks. Should we try to push it back to 8pm? Also what's the best way in avoiding the crowds to get back to the POP?

    Hi Charlene! Dinner at the California Grill is delicious and magical, with the best views of the Magic Kingdom. On your date, Wishes is being held at 10 pm. Personally, I would try to delay my reservation until around 9 pm. No worries if you can't change it, the Contemporary has great viewing locations, or you can head to the beach at Polynesian resort.

    After dinner, I would walk back to the Magic Kingdom, and board the bus to Pop Century. The walk is less than 10 minutes, but you can also take the monorail. Don't be discouraged by the lineups at the buses, they put on additional buses at busier times. If you're still awake and raring to go, you could hop on a bus from the Contemporary and head to Downtown Disney for some late night shopping and a night cap.

    Wishing you a magical vacation Charlene!
