    I have a 5:20 reservation at California Grill. I would like to be able to view the evening's fireworks from the restaurant. I imagine we will finish dinner well before the fireworks. Would we be able to go out to the observation deck after dinner?

    Welcome to planDisney, Aaron! Thanks so much for stopping by and asking this great question. I'm happy to help! 

    I'm excited for you that you were able to score a dinner reservation at California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort! I have a summer vacation planned at the Walt Disney World Resort too and I'm hoping to try this beloved dining spot for the first time. I'm especially excited about the 50th Anniversary Celebration Menu! I'm happy to say that you will be able to watch Disney Enchantment from the observation deck after your meal. You will need to hang onto your receipt and return to the restaurant's podium 30 minutes before the start time of the fireworks. Because your dining reservation is on the earlier side of dinner, you might have some time before the fireworks start. Depending on the amount of time you have, I would recommend hopping on the Walt Disney World Monorail Transportation and taking the time to explore the other hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection. I have always found resort hopping to be a fun way to check out other properties for future dining and hotel reservations! 

    As you are planning, please visit us again at planDisney if you have additional questions. I'm wishing you a magical vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth! 

    Happy Planning!
