    We want to watch the wishes fireworks from the California grill on Friday January 8. What time should we make our reservations for?

    Hi Teresa, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question!

    Although the Magic Kingdom Park’s Calendar hasn’t been updated with January Park Hours yet, if Wishes nighttime spectacular is going to be scheduled on January 8th, 2016, there’s a good chance that it will take place any time between 8:00-10:00 p.m. With that in mind, I would try to snag a reservation for California Grill some time around 8:00. 

    If you finish your dinner sooner, rather than later, remember that you’re welcome to come back to California Grill aout 15 minutes before the fireworks start in order to see them from the restaurant’s Observation Deck. Finally, if Wishes is presented earlier that night, you can also check-in for your reservation early and ask to go and see the show from the Observation Deck as well. If you do that, make sure to have a drink in the lounge while you wait for your table and tell Ray I say hi! 

    Have fun planning your trip and please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions.

    Have a Magical Day,
