    hi moms! coming WDW 9/13! want to make ADR @ california grill 9/22, only 9:30pm left, is there anywhere i can watch the fireworks from at the contemp.? or any chance of being seated early? - also will i have trouble returning to POR that late at night? :)

    Hi, Katie!  You can always head early to the California Grill to see if there might be a cancellation for an early time.  There are no guarantees, but you might get lucky!  

    There is a fourth floor observation deck at the Contemporary Resort, and it's a great spot to be to catch the fireworks.  You can also just walk out at the back of the resort and see them, as the Contemporary is just a quick walk away from the Magic Kingdom.

    As for returning to your resort, the easiest way is via taxi, which are readily available outside the resort.  Alternatively, take the bus from the resort to Downtown Disney, then the bus from there back to your resort.  Easy peasy!

    Have a wonderful time!
