    Hi1 Will be in WDW 11/11-11/16. I know the schedule isn't out yet, but generally, what time is Holiday Wishes during MVMCP and what time is Wishes when there is no MVMCP? Trying to figure out reservation at Cal Grill. Tnx so much!

    Hi Anne!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    For many years now, the special Holiday Wishes shown during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party has been shown at 9:30 pm. 

    For regular Wishes during that time period, Disney hasn't announced it yet.  However, based on my personal experiences for early November in the past, I would say that Wishes will either occur at 9:00 or 10:00 depending on the exact night with 9:00 being more typical.

    I suggest making a dinner reservation around an hour before the fireworks.  That way when you arrive at the California Grill, you can request a window table and can afford to wait a little while to see if one opens.  That said, however, I think it is more magical to watch the show from the outside balcony at the California Grill than from the table; of course, your food might get cold if it arrived minutes before Wishes!

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
