    If I have a choice of dining times of 5:50pm or 7:30 for california grill with wishes starting at 8pm, which time will be best for the fireworks?

    Hi, Heather! One of my favorite things to do at Walt Disney World is to time an Advanced Dining Reservation at the California Grill during Wishes at the Magic Kingdom. For an 8 p.m. viewing of Wishes, I recommend the 5:50 p.m. reservation.  More than likely, you will not be seated until after 6 p.m., and depending on the size of your party and how many courses you order, you may be served around 6:45.  Then, you can take your time and linger over dessert until everyone starts gathering outside on the viewing patio around 15 minutes prior to the show. Plus, my preference would be to enjoy the fireworks after my meal. I hope this helps you think about what is your preference, too. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
