    We made reservations for a 9:20 dinner at California Grill for the Wishes fireworks which are at 9:00 that night. Would they allow us to check in early, grab a drink and go to the balcony to watch them before our dinner?

    Hi Samantha,

    I'm so glad to hear that you were able to get a reservation at the newly re-imagined California Grill. You are in for a treat.

    You should have no problems checking in early for your dinner. I would plan to arrive no later than 8:40 to be sure you have time to get upstairs for Wishes, especially if you want to grab a drink first. I was lucky enough to be able to watch the fireworks from the new California Grill viewing area this week, and I can tell you that the view is even more spectacular than before. (So is the food, by the way.)

    Have a magical (and delicious) evening at California Grill! Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you as you plan your visit. Enjoy!
