Tried today still a no go

I have tried daily and get that same message. I even contacted customer service to ask about it as we have booked all but the California Grill for our end of September trip. They told me to book another restaurant just to be safe. Makes me nervous.

Does anyone have thoughts on the best time to eat there? Having a family of 4 with tweens, eating at 8 or later to see fireworks just won't work. What's the next best? Let's pray they open up booking soon!

I can book our ADR's starting tomorrow so I'm planning on Narcoossee or Artist Point as an alternate. I'm really hoping CG reopens by then because it's our first choice for our anniversary dinner.

I've heard if you book CG about an hour and a half before Wishes you will be finishing up and get to see the fireworks. Wishes is probably at 9 p.m. in September. If your kids can't stay up that late, then I would book it so that the sun goes down by the end of your dinner. I haven't eaten at CG but we stayed at Bay Lake Tower which basically has the same view, and the view of the castle and MK lit up at night is magical and shouldn't be missed. I looked up the sunset times for September and it is around 7:30 p.m., so I wouldn't book earlier than 6:30.

Assuming they have the same policies after they reopen (and we know what happens when one assumes), as long as you have you receipt from when you ate that day at Cali Grill you could go back up to watch the fireworks - so even if you feel you want to eat earlier due to kids, whatever, you could go back up to watch the fireworks later

The view there is great - so close yet out of the park - and they pipe in the music. Also, there are really 2 decks - the front one that 90% of the people go to and a back one which is always less crowded

Another thread was started with information relevant to CG opening, and speculation that the opening will be later than originally expected.
