    I have ADR for 8:50pm at California Grille-June21st . Fireworks at 10. I'm assuming we'll still be eating and can go outside to view or, if we are lucky, can view from our table? It will be our daughters 13th bday. Any other helpful info?

    Hi Liz! 

    You are going to love California Grill! We eat there every time we visit and we love dining atop The Contemporary resort and watching Wishes from above! It's like nothing you've ever experienced! The time of your Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) is perfect. You can enjoy your dinner and then at 10:00 p.m. go outside on the balcony and watch the entire Wishes show! Not all of the tables are located near a window, but all guests are invited to view Wishes from the balcony. Even when I have a window seat, I prefer to go outside and watch. The entire restaurant dims the lights and even plays the music from Wishes inside and on the balcony! 

    Make sure to mention that you are celebrating your daughter's birthday on your ADR. You may even have a special birthday treat brought to your table to celebrate the special occasion! 

    You will check in at the podium located on the 2nd floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort. Then a Cast Member will take you to the 15th floor in the elevator. It's an absolutely magical experience! 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
