    Hello, If i make a reservation for the California Grill at 9:00pm on June 25th, 2022, will i be able to enjoy the fireworks with my family or do i need to purchase an additional "viewing party" to be able to watch?

    Hiya Vincent,

    Welcome to planDisney! We are so happy that you are here and have come to us with your planning question. On a personal note, I am ecstatic to talk to you about Disney’s California Grill. On my most recent visit to Walt Disney World Resort, I had the pleasure to enjoy dinner at California Grill, and the special 50th Anniversary menu is out-of-this-world. The iridescent Grand Marnier Crème Brulee is the stuff of dreams, and I’m still talking about the Braised Beef Short Rib Wontons a month later. I know you and your family are going to love it.

    To answer your question, when you have dinner at California Grill, you also get the chance to experience the viewing of the awe-inspiring Disney’s Enchantment from the 15th-floor observation deck at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Even more special is that only Guests of the California Grill can watch from this location, so it is much less crowded. So essentially, there is no need to purchase an additional viewing party if you do not wish to. Simply arrive at the California Grill podium between 15-30 minutes before the showtime, and let the Cast Member know that you have a dining reservation and would like to watch the show from the observation deck. They should be able to accommodate you and your family and let you view the show before your reservation.

    I hope I have answered your question, Vincent. If there is anything else we can do to help, please come back and see us!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
