    Hi, we have a reservation for California grill scheduled for 9:45pm on one of our vacation days. Are we allowed to watch the fireworks beforehand from the observation deck prior to our meal? Thanks.

    Hello Jacqueline,

    Dining at California Grill is a delicious treat, and the restaurant's observation deck is a magical spot to catch a stunning view of Disney Enchantment. I'm happy to let you know that, yes, you will be able to watch the fireworks prior to your scheduled reservation!

    Plan on heading to the check-in podium on the 2nd floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort about a half hour prior to the start of the fireworks. A cast member will escort you up to the 15th floor in a special elevator where you can enjoy the view. Afterwards, depending on how much time you have until your dining reservation, you may choose to grab a drink at the lounge or go back downstairs and enjoy exploring the resort lobby until your official check-in time.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
