    Dear Moms, we are planning our first disney vacation for 11/10-11/16. First, can you see the fireworks in the MK from the California Grill in the contemporary? If so, how do I find out which nights during our trip offer the MK fireworks? Thank you

    Hi there Janis!  California Grill is one of my most absolute favorite locations in all of Walt Disney World, and the delicious food is not the only reason.  Boasting one of the most incredible views of the Magic Kingdom and Cinderella Castle, California Grill is what a like to call, "A Dining Room with a View."

    A good majority of the tables in the dining areas offer an unparalleled view of Wishes, the Magic Kingdom's nightly fireworks display.  To add to the magic, the lights are dimmed in the restaurant at showtime and the soundtrack is even piped in through the speakers, so it's like you're there on Main Street.  If you don't have the best view from your table, fear not... There are two catwalk-style observation decks just outside, which are reserved for the exclusive use of California Grill guests.  When you walk out onto these special spaces, you'll truly feel as if your on top of "The World."  Unexplainable!

    I always reference the unofficial site wdwinfo.com to verify fireworks schedules during my vacation dates.  You'll be able to locate exact times for your specific dates by searching the site.  I recommend booking a reservation for least an hour prior to the start of Wishes to ensure you are comfortable seated before the MAGIC begins! Please call (407)WDW-DINE as soon as possible to secure your table!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
