    I have a reservation for California Grill dinner at 5pm. On that day, the Enchantment fireworks will be held at 9pm. After finishing my dinner, can I come back to the reataurant to watch the fireworks show?

    Hi there, Hawk! Thank you for coming to planDisney with your question. I'm so excited for you to experience the magic of Walt Disney World in a few weeks!

    It sounds like you've done some excellent research! California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort is one of the finest dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort. I'm always filled with anticipation of the evening ahead as I'm whisked away in the restaurant's private elevator to the 15th floor. When asked what makes this my favorite meal on property, it's a toss-up between the delicious food and the fantastic view of Magic Kingdom Park!

    Meals here usually take about an hour and a half, so you'll be able to witness a beautiful sunset! Patrons who dine here earlier in the evening are welcome to return to watch the fireworks; just be sure to bring your receipt and show it at the check-in podium to access the observation deck. Since Disney Enchantment is scheduled for 9:00 PM that night, I recommend getting back to the restaurant by 8:45 PM to secure your spot. 

    In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort, California Grill is serving a 3-course prix fixe menu for a limited time. The chefs here created the menu with items that "evoke the spirit of 1971″ — the opening year of Walt Disney World. I had the Duck À L'Orange Pizza as a first course and the Pork Tenderloin as my entree, and both were outstanding, but you can't go wrong with any of the choices here! 

    I hope you have an unforgettable experience, Hawk! If you need anything else, you know where to find us!
