    We have a 5:00 pm ADR at California Grill. We plan on going to MK after dinner, then returning to the restaurant or viewing are to watch Wishes at 10 pm that night. Can we park at the Contemporary for dinner and the leave the car there while at MK?

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Danielle!

    I think the evening you have planned for California Grill and Magic Kingdom sounds amazing! You are welcome to use valet parking or self-parking at Disney's Contemporary Resort for your reservation and stay for up to three hours. Based on your reservation time and the time of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, your best bet would be to park your car at the Ticket and Transportation Center prior to dinner and use the Resort Monorail to travel to Disney's Contemporary Resort. Then you can simply take the short walk or the Resort Monorail to travel between the dinner and Magic Kingdom to enjoy the theme park and then head back to the restaurant to see my favorite view of Wishes Fireworks Spectacular!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
