California Grill timing
I have never been to California Grill. I was only able to get a reservation at 9:15 pm. It is a party night so the fireworks are at 9:30pm. Does this mean my reservation is too late to see them? What time should we arrive?

Chances are very good that with a 9:15 seating, you will not even be seated by the time fireworks go off at 9:30 because people tend to hang onto their tables if it's close to showtime.

You should be able to go up early and watch from the observation deck if you aren't seated. Most people go outside anyway as only the tables up against the glass on the one side have good table views anyway.

We had a 9:15 seating back over Labor Day weekend. We were taken right to our table at 9:10, our server took our drink order and then asked if we wanted to go outside and order dinner when we returned. We did just that and enjoyed the show plus a wonderful dinner after :)

Try to be there 10-15 minutes early. With a reservation, they'll let you go right up. If your table is ready it'll be as Eeyores experience.

If it isn't ready, just try and grab a drink at the bar and then go out to watch the fireworks.
