Thanks!!
assuming the policy doesn't change, as long as you had a meal there at some point in the day you are allowed to come back later to watch wishes from the observation deck. So you could eat early and leave and come back or eat and then hang at the bar until wishes starts

If you do want to stay in the restaurant after dinner, instead of sitting out on the observation deck, I would recommend going to the bar and having a leisurely after dinner drink, or maybe doing a monorail bar crawl and ending up back at the contemporary for wishes? Better yet stay at the contemporary that night, go back to your room and relax and then go up for Wishes

Whatever you do, you don't have to stay there unless you want to, you will be allowed back up for wishes if you had a reservation.


Thank you both for this info!! Nice to know we can leave and then come back. Not into eating late, so will be nice to either hit the other monorail resorts, OR just hit up the bar until Wishes starts.

Thanks as well Glad to know we can do this, as it has been past practise. Looking forward to seeing the knew place, and if any menu changes have happened

I wonder why news is so silent on this.

For people who remember similar refurbs, is this common?

Spoke with DVC member services this AM. She said that they are not taking reservations because the refurbishment changed the number of tables in restaurant and they don't know the final number yet. I was booking a trip for January, asked about CG for our October trip.

I'm glad my stay falls on the day ADRs are being taken. I booked that sucker immediately! I would be going nuts if I was still waiting this late to see what my date night plans "may" be if I had kept scheduled the night we wanted later in our trip in November. Now, I'm just keeping an eye out to help a friend who is going in October.

Yes! Back in May! You have to call. I called the day I found out and the CM had to double check, but we were able to do it for Nov. 18.
I thought I saw it originally on the Disney Parks Blog, but guessing it was here instead:

Wow, that is crazy! Maybe call back and see what another CM says. I just checked MDE and I still have that ADR in my profile, so it's there.

I called yesterday to book for October and the CM told me they can't make ADRs until the restaurant confirms an opening date, which they haven't yet.

This is interesting. Appears ADRs stopped being taken shortly after I booked mine:

If you read the replies to the food blog I posted, I just saw Nov. 18 seemed to be a glitch, and I just happened to get in. I will be calling regardless when it opens back up, just to make sure it stays. But I would THINK to avoid a total nightmare on Nov. 18, that Disney would just be sure the current ADRs for that day stay in their system.
