    Hi, I have dining reservations at the California Grill at 7:30pm Dec. 14th and would like to know if that is a good time to see the fireworks over the castle?

    Hi Bill,

    On December 14th, the special holiday version of Wishes is scheduled to be shown at 9:30 pm.  Your 7:30 pm advanced dining reservation at the California Grill will put you in a good position to enjoy the fireworks spectacular above Cinderella Castle from your table.  At signature dining restaurants like the California Grill, dinner is served and enjoyed at a leisurely pace.  It sounds like you might be enjoying dessert just as the fireworks begin.  If, however, your family prefers to progress through your meal at a brisker pace you can still enjoy an unparalleled view of Wishes from the walkway just outside and to the right of the restaurant atop Disney's Contemporary Resort.  If your choice is to watch Holiday Wishes from that location, just be sure to bring a jacket.  It can be chilly out there in December. 

    Best wishes to you as you plan your magical Walt Disney World vacation!
