    Can you arrive early for a late booking at California Grill in order to watch the fireworks from the observation deck?

    Hi there, Stuart! Welcome to planDisney, the Most Magical Place on the Internet. I'm so happy that you decided to stop by with your question, and I'm more than happy to help!

    Just like you, I am a BIG fan of watching the fireworks from the observation deck at the California Grill restaurant. Having said that, I'm happy to report that I've always been allowed to step outside to watch the show, even when my reservation is still hours away.

    Stuart, if you want to watch Happily Ever After before dinner, simply head to the host stand and let them know that you have a reservation later that night and that you'd like to head to the observation deck before you check-in for your meal. The Cast Members will then escort you to the restaurant's elevator, and they'll lead you to the observation deck where you'll be able to enjoy the show!

    Fireworks aside, I am so happy that you decided to book a table at this incredible restaurant. It's one of my favorite spots on property... and for good reason! You're going to love the food, the drinks, and the overall ambiance that the California Grill offers. The Braised Beef Short Rib Wontons are my favorite, but you really can't go wrong with any dishes here. You'll want to go back over and over again!

    I hope this helps, Stuart! If you have any other questions for us, please don't hesitate to come right back so we may assist you further. We're always available and more than happy to help!

    Warm hugs,

    Ana Paula
