    Celebrating our 10 anniversary @ WDW in May! I was so excited to get an ADR @ California Grill @ 9PM just as Wishes was scheduled to begin, now I hear that we should have made a much earlier res. Are we going to miss it? What are our options now?

    Hi Christian! What a romantic way to celebrate your tenth anniversary! California Grill is a wonderful restaurant with a fantastic view of Wishes!

    If I were you, I'd plan to arrive at the restaurant at least fifteen minutes before your 9 p.m. reservation. If your table is not ready, just tell them that you would like to wait on the observation deck, perhaps with a cocktail from the lounge. Guests who dined at California Grill earlier in the evening are permitted to return to the restaurant and watch the fireworks from the observation deck, and many guests dining during Wishes will leave their tables to have a better view of Wishes from the deck.

    If you prefer to watch Wishes from the comfort of your table, you may want to move your reservation to an earlier time so you can be assured that you will be seated before the fireworks begin.

    Don't forget to mention that you're celebrating your anniversary -- you may receive a little pixie dust!
