    I will have the extended family with me on a future trip to Disney World. I'm thinking of a night time gathering at the California Grill for fireworks and drinks. Can we just go up? Or do we need a reservation for dinner?

    Hi Jamie! The California Grill has a spectacular view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks! For this reason and the fact that the food there is fabulous, the California Grill is a very popular restaurant that usually books up well in advance. The restaurant does have a lounge area that's available to guests on a first-come basis; you could try walking up to the check-in podium to see if there would be availability in the lounge for your family. However, since it sounds like you're traveling with a large group, I recommend that you make a reservation for the California Grill; doing so is the the best way to ensure that you'll all be able to view the fireworks from the restaurant that evening. 

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
