    We have ADR at California Grill on Sept. 2nd. Wishes is on @ 9pm. Will we be able to watch wishes during our meal or will we have to leave before wishes starts? Do we need to tell them that we want to stay for the fireworks and/or willl they let us? Thx

    Hi Lynda,

    What time is your dinner reservation?  You should feel comfortable dining at a leisurely pace.  If you finish your meal well before Wishes begins, you may return to the California Grill in time to watch Wishes.  They have a lovely walkway just outside the restaurant on top of Disney's Contemporary Resort from which you can watch the fireworks. Just bring your receipt from dinner earlier that night so that they will permit you to re-enter the restaurant.  I did this last December and it was pure magic!  So, whether you are watching Wishes from your table or from the walkway alongside the restaurant, I'm sure you'll have an excellent vantage point for the fireworks.

    Have a lovely vacation this September!
