    My husband and I have a California grill reservation while our daughter is playing in the parks with her grandparents. Would we be able to take advantage of the fireworks viewing area before/after our reservation with our whole group or only two who dined?

    Hey there, Alyssa!

    You are a woman after my own heart. While I love playing the day away in the parks with my little ones, I value quality time and enjoy indulging in some amazing food and wine with my Husband. 

    Alyssa, officially only the members of your party who dined at California Grill will be able to return for the fireworks viewing. They do check your receipt which has the number of people in your party listed. 

    I recommend that you check with the host once you head out to see if they have any leniency in the policy. Perhaps if they are not crowded, they may be able to make an exception, but I would not count on it. 

    If you are looking for a great place to view the all-new Disney Enchantment, I recommend that you set up shop near the flagpole at the back of Main Street, U.S.A. Being so close to the exit, you will be one of the first to leave the park and also have an amazing view. 

    If your parents and daughter need something more low-key after their long day, you can also view the fireworks from the beach at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Be sure to grab a Dole Whip from the Pineapple Lanai before you settle in to watch. One thing that you will want to be aware of is that you will not be allowed to park at any resort that you do not have a dining reservation for, so you will need to use Disney transportation to get there. 

    I just know that you will have a wonderful date night and fireworks viewing experience, Alyssa!

    See you real soon!
