    We have a reservation for California Grill at 5:35, but we are dropping the kids off at the Sandcastle Club at 4:30 when it opens. Will we have enough time to make it to our reservation?

    Hi Connie!

    Your kiddos will love the Sandcastle Club at Disney's Beach Club Resort. There are a ton of activities, like baking, science experiments and learning to be a pirate! Kids love the clubs so much that they beg to go back. If you drop your kids off at 4:30 p.m. and then drive or take a taxi or uber to Disney's Contemporary Resort for dinner at California Grill at 5:35, you will have enough time. However, if you want to take the complimentary bus transportation from Beach Club, you will have to take a bus to the Tickets and Transportation Center (TTC) and then from TTC to The Contemporary. You can also take a bus from Beach Club to Magic Kingdom and walk over to the Contemporary. That option will take longer than driving and you'll be cutting it close to make your reservation on time. 

    While you are at California Grill, consider staying until Wishes occurs at Magic Kingdom and you can see Wishes from above on the balcony of California Grill. It's absolutely beautiful!
