    154 days until my Disney vacation! I have made dining reservations for both 'Ohana and California Grill. Which is the best place to catch the fireworks at MK? Both reservations are around the same time- just waiting to see which provides the best views.

    HI Jasmine!

    The views from California Grill just can't be beat! I've had the opportunity to watch Wishes from atop of the Contemporary a number of times and it is always breathtaking! Many tables within the restaurant offer views of the fireworks, and you'll also have the opportunity to watch from the outside viewing area. Often, if your dinner is timed right at the same time as the fireworks, the wait staff will inquire if you plan to watch outside. If so, they can help time your meal so that you'll have a break between courses. The Wishes music is also played so that you'll have the full experience.

    At Ohana, a small number of tables may have a glimpse of the fireworks but it will not be guaranteed. However, if you choose to time your meal to finish before Wishes, you can watch the fireworks from the beach at the Polynesian. The view from the beach is wonderful and the music is often played here as well.

    I hope this helps! Enjoy your trip!
