    Hello, am wanting see if you all think we will have time for a 5:45 dinner at CA Grill and make our 7:30 Pirates and Pals shove off? Which I found out about on this panel. Thank you for all your advice. It has been invaluable!

    Hi Jamie,


    You have two fantastic events planned on the same night!  I love eating at the California Grill.  The food is absolutely fabulous.  I usually will give at least 1 1/2 hours there so I think you will be cutting it a bit close.  If you cannot adjust your Advanced Dining Reservations by 15-20 minutes and still want to do both, I would tell your server that you need to leave by 7:10 pm so you have plenty of time to get checked in and use the restroom before starting your nautical adventure!  The Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage is so much fun.  My whole family just loved this.  You will first meet Captain Hook, Mr. Smee and your Captain, Patch and will have lots of goodies to eat and drink.  Be sure to bring your camera to capture all these magical moments!  Then you are off on your cruise to the middle of the Seven Seas Lagoon to view the Magic Kingdom Fireworks.  To see them from the water is utterly breathtaking, Jamie!  You will be entertained with Disney Trivia and small prizes for the children to and from the dock.  The evening ends with a surprise visit from Peter Pan!  You will have such a great time!  I am excited for you.  Please send me a follow up question if I can help you further, Jamie.
