    What is the name of the resturant where you can watch the fireworks? What time should you make your reservation?

    I believe the restaurant you're thinking of is the California Grill, located on the top of the Contemporary Hotel. The views of the fireworks are amazing. During the show, they dim the lights in the restaurant and pipe in the music, so you can get the full experience of the show from that wonderful vantage point.

    The timing of the fireworks varies seasonally and even daily within a season. You should check the schedule posted on the Magic Kingdom calendar on the WDW website, found HERE. Click on the boxes inside the calendar grid to be brought to the schedule for parades and fireworks.

    I think you'll be doing great if you get a dinner reservation anytime from about 1.5 hours before the fireworks start until showtime. That way you'll be able to be in the restaurant dining during Wishes.

    Enjoy!
