    Is it better to view the Wishes fireworks while dining at the California Grill or to dine there first and return to view from observation deck?


    I think it is better to view the fireworks from the comfort of your own table, if you can get one with a view of the park. Some of the tables are not ideally located, so it is not a 100% certainty that you will love your table-side view.

    The real advantage to planning on viewing from your table is that if you get there and decide that the view is not optimal, you can always just go hit the observation deck anyway. It is just a short walk away, so you can get out onto the deck very quickly. Just make sure the wait staff is aware of what you are doing, as they may ask you to close out your tab before departing to the deck.

    Another important benefit to viewing from the table is that if the weather is not perfect, you can still watch with comfort and ease!

    I hope that this helps? If not, please send me a follow-up question and I will try again!

    Have a magical vacation!
