    Help!!! Which would you suggest for teh perfect Wishes Fireworks experience - Dinner in California Grill or the Premium Wishes Cruise If dinner is the best option what time should we make reservations for - we are travelling in December Thankyou


    The fireworks cruise, for sure!  It isn't cheap, but it is gorgeous and a really great experience.  You'll get a tour of Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon, get to watch the Electrical Water Pageant from the water, and get an incredible view of Wishes.  Fireworks details are clearly visible from the water, and you'll likely not see them from other vantage points (especially from inside the park).  And snacks and refreshments are included as well.  These cruises leave about 45 minutes before the start of Wishes, and you can catch them at the marina of any of the monorail resorts (Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Contemporary).  Call 1-407-WDW-PLAY to book, up to 90 days in advance.

    If you opt for dinner (and don't get me wrong, California Grill is spectacular), I'd schedule it about 60 minutes prior to Wishes if at all possible.  You'll need to call ASAP though, as December reservations have been accepted since June.  It may be too late to get the ADR you'd like.  Disney Dining can be reached at 1-407-WDW-DINE.

    Have a great vacation!
