    Hi, Have ADR at California Grill for 11/26 at 7:45. Want to see Wishes and the Electrical Water Pageant. What time would the pageant take place and where would be a good place to view it? Thanks !!!

    Hi there, Karen!

    The night and time for your California Grill reservation are very lucky ones, indeed! According to the official Magic Kingdom calendar, Wishes! Nighttime Spectacular will occur at 8:00pm. You'll have the perfect viewing spot for it: atop Disney's Contemporary Resort (and the audio for the show is piped in). And even if you do not get a window table, you can head toward the outdoor catwalk and enjoy it al fresco!

    The Electrical Water Pageant has a pretty similar circuit nightly:

    Polynesian Resort -- 9 p.m.
    Grand Floridian -- 9:15 p.m.
    Wilderness Lodge -- 9:35 p.m.
    Fort Wilderness -- 9:45 p.m.
    Contemporary Resort -- 10:05 p.m.
    Magic Kingdom -- 10:20 p.m. (only during Magic Kingdom Extra Magic Hours).

    You are welcome to "hang out" at the Contemporary to watch the pageant at 10:05 PM, following your leisurely meal. Because there's no guarantee that you will be seated promptly at 7:45 PM, I would hate to recommend any other viewing location to you. Your best bet, I think, is to relax at the beautiful Contemporary until the pageant floats by.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
