    I have reservations around 6 pm at California Grill on the same night as one of Mickey’s Not So Scary parties. With my receipt, can I still get access to the rooftop bar for fireworks at 10:15?

    Hey, Jaclynn! Welcome to planDisney.

    California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort is my number one restaurant in Walt Disney World Resort and also my favorite place to watch the nighttime spectaculars at Magic Kingdom Park

    You'll be pleased to know that Guests who have dined at California Grill earlier in the evening may return to watch the nighttime spectacular with their receipt. If I were you, I'd check with a Cast Member when you arrive at Disney's Contemporary Resort. I know that, for safety reasons, the restaurant can only fit a certain number of Guests. Once they reach their maximum, they no longer let people up. Having watched the fireworks a few times from California Grill, I can testify that you'll be blown away. However, I've never watched Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular from this vantage point. What a great way to enjoy the show without a ticket to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

    Here's a tip for your meal at California Grill: Order the Cast Iron-grilled Pork Tenderloin. I never usually order pork at a restaurant (I'm more of a steak or salmon guy). However, a Cast Member convinced me to get this dish earlier this year and I took his word for it. It is the most flavorful and delectable dish. You won't regret it!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Jaclynn. Have a great meal!
