    We want to eat dinner one night at the California Grill and time it so that we can watch the MK fireworks soon after finishing our meal. For what time would you recommend making our dinner reservations?

    Hello Jodi!  Since you want to have finished your meal prior to Wishes beginning, I would recommend you make your dining reservation about 90 minutes or so prior to the start of Wishes.  This should give you ample time to go through the check-in process and enjoy a relaxing dinner.  In case you don't know, you actually check-in for the California Grill on the 2nd floor of the Contemporary.  From there, you will be escorted up an elevator to the California Grill when the time is appropriate.

    Enjoy your vacation!  Diane  :)
