    Planning vaca in Oct. MK will be "closed" the last night of our trip for MNSHP. Considering ADR at Cal. Grill (kids 7 & 11) for nice dinner and diff fireworks experience. What would be a good time to req. reservations and in what location of

    We took our four children to California Grill last year on one of the nights when the Magic Kingdom closed early for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.  I just went back and checked the guidebook I made for last year's trip and found that our dining reservation that night was for 7:30.  As it turned out, the timing was perfect for viewing the Hallowishes fireworks show.  We had just finished dinner when the show started.  We went out to the overlook for a better view and when we returned to our table, our desserts were there waiting.  Of course, there were six of us so our meal may have taken a bit longer than yours will.  Also, we did wait a few minutes to be seated.  I'd say that if the Hallowishes show is scheduled to begin at 9:30 again this year, you're probably safe making a reservation for around 8:00.  It does make for a late meal for little tummies but it is a very neat experience if you can swing it.  I know that dining in such a beautiful restaurant made our two oldest daughters feel like princesses.  Have fun!
