    Hi There! Quick question...what time should I make dinner reservations at the California Grill to be able to enjoy the fireworks while we eat dessert? Thank you

    Hi Robyn!

    My family loves to dine at California Grill and enjoy watching Wishes from atop The Contemporary Resort. You will want to check out the specific time of Wishes on the Magic Kingdom calendar prior to your visit. If Wishes is at 10:00 p.m. I recommend making a dinner reservation for 9:00 p.m. so you can enjoy your meal and linger over dessert while watching Wishes. If Wishes is at 9:00, make your reservation for 8:00. Even if you can't get the exact time you are looking for, you can go on the balcony at the restaurant to enjoy the Wishes show and then go back to your table for your meal.
    I hope you have a magical vacation!
