I hope they redo the bar area to face around the MK View. Hoping for a November 17th, first anniversary date...

Thanks, jlsmith. My mom is coming with us she offered to babysit..we only get to go out maybe 2 times a year, so even though it is in September we are going to celebrate or anniversary, hopefully at CG. A so excited! I don't think I can get there earlier than 8, we are driving up that day form Miami (another trip weare adding onto) and want to visit my Dh grandmother at her home in Orlando first...so will be tight getting to the reservation. I don't care about the timing of the fireworks and food I am just excited to go!!!!,

One more thing..anyone have another suggestion for an alternative or is artists point a good one to stick with?

Artist Point is currently our back-up plan for CG. The only reason we would cancel it for CG is because we've been to AP, but never been to CG. We also have Citricos booked for earlier in the week. I think either of them would be good choice.

They have artist's renderings in the newest DVC magazine and it looks like the bar is in the same place it always was.

Okay, people, here's the deal. I just booked a trip from 9/20 until the 26th, so I am officially as invested in this as all of you are. I will keep checking daily (and I do, as I get at least 10 inquiries per day) for the venue. Fingers crossed!

Add me to the list of those who are waiting for CG reservations to open up. Hoping for the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Hey we'll be there the same time! Just don't steal a CG table from me. I am hoping that they open it up soon as we have never eaten there and this may be our last trip to Disney for years. What is the best time to book if you want to see the fireworks while eating in September. Or, is finishing up and going out on deck even better? With a family who usually eat at about 6:30 ish, the thought of eating at 8 is not too appealing. And not knowing how long a meal will take there, I'm not sure when to book--that is, if we ever get the chance! Any insight?

I'd say 7:30pm is your best bet for a reservation. They will let you linger if you've already finished your meal.

I've heard late summer for ressies...

from a TA who spoke to a CM this week--whatever "late summer" means. (I.e., keep checking every day . We're hoping for first week in November (specific night with a pretty full itinerary to max the fun for our DDs--first on-property WDW stay in many years and last before college calls our wallets--who don't know we're going yet). Citrico is our backup.

My trip is the first week of December. I am doing a reservation for Artist Point, as I have not eaten there before, but would switch to Cal Grill if it opens up. It would be my "official" birthday celebration dinner.
