    Got ADR for California Grille at 9pm on May 15th. Wishes is at 10pm. Is 9 a good time if we want to see the fireworks? Any suggestions for good seats?

    Hi Lisa,

    California Grill is one of my favorite restaurants!  The food is delicious - I especially love the sushi.  The fact that you can watch the fireworks while you dine is just an added bonus.

    As far as good seats, many people like to ask for a table near a window with a view of the castle.  However, it doesn't really matter where you sit.  During Wishes, the lights will be dimmed, music piped in, and food will not be served.  If you don't have a front row seat, there is an observation deck outside.  After wishes, you can continue your meal -- don't worry about food getting cold.  The servers have things down to a science, and they won't bring your food unless you have time to eat it before Wishes begins.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
