I've read here, that in the past, they would let you leave your table to watch wishes,then you could return to finish your meal.
Has anyone heard if they will continue to allow that?
I'm figuring,with a 7:30 dinner start, Wishes will be starting sometime soon after,that time of year,while we're still eating..
I am sure its same as always!

I just got reservations for Nov 3 at 9 PM! I'm so excited. We get there that day and I had always planned to go there for dinner so we could watch Wishes and have a really nice dinner. I'm so excited it's actually happening!! It's a bit later than I was hoping for but WHO CARES!

Thanks for this thread!

Got reservations today at 7:00 am for 11 November 2013 at 5 pm. Same day as our MVMCP and Veterans Day. We are excited since we didn't think we would get to eat at California Grill this trip.

I got an ADR for 5:15 on the 15 of September, can't wait! They had nothing later but was told I could leave the restaurant when done and come back there later in the evening to view fireworks. Cool

Bonnie, I got the same time :P. I've been reading if you get 3 courses the meal could take 2 hours. They had 7:15 for the longest time and I booked it this morning first thing. I saw 655 and grabbed it because that should give us time to eat at least get started. Some people on here have said the CM's at CG will hold your table while you watch wishes.

Thanks to everyone who kept checking and updating this thread for the past several months. Thanks to the heads up I was able to get reservations for our group of 18 in November. I'm usually more of a lurker than a poster, but I did want to say thanks.

Me too at 9:05. A little on the late side, but I think we'll be able to see Wishes.

I made my ressie at 7:30 this morning and just checked the thread now. Wow.

Great. That's pretty much the only night we can swing it that week as it is also EMH at MK and we planned on dropping kids off at Simba's Cubhouse to have some Mommy & Daddy time.

I have a question about my ADR time. I originally booked CG for our last night (10/8) at 7:20pm but since we are going to be at Epcot that day for F&W festival, I decided that I wanted to switch out the ADR to our off day (10/5) so we could actually enjoy our meals rather then going there pretty much full from all the wonderful F&W goodies. Now my question is, I originally wanted to get a 5pm ADR but noticed when I went to the drop down bar, it said the earliest time I could reserve was 5:30pm, however when I plugged that in, a 5:20pm ADR showed up (which I snagged). Just curious if the first seating is actually at 5:30 or are they allowing for earlier ADRs then what the actual online dining is showing? Don't get me wrong, I am very happy with our ADR time, I was just curious about it.

Another time question. :O

I started a thread, then it occurred to me the CG obsessed may know.

I booked an 8:50 ADR, because we like to dine late. Hallowishes is scheduled for 9:30 pm. After giving it some thought, I'm now concerned that people will hold onto the tables until Hallowishes is over. I don't want to be waiting an hour on a table. Anyway, should we expect to wait a very long time on a table with an 8:50 ADR? If so, I'll keep trying for a better time. What's the best time for an ADR, when the fireworks are at 9:30 pm? FWIW, I'm more concerned with being seated in a timely manner than seeing the fireworks.

Anyone else not seeing their ADR showing up in MDE? Haven't gotten an email confirmation, either, and I'm starting to get a little nervous. Added layer of compilation is that I flew out on business shortly after the call and left the reservation written in a piece of paper in my car. The car that's parked at a big Chicago airport, which is very far from the NY hotel I find myself in at the moment.

Cause for alarm? Or simply a delay in processing? Kicking myself now for putting that paper in my bag before jumping on the airport shuttle. It'll be late Wednesday night before I can try to link the reservation on my own. :/

Just an FYI that not only will they hold your table but can hold your next course as well.

Just tell them when you are seated that you want to go out to watch Wishes and they will time the firing of the courses so that they don't bring your food out right as you were going to head out and then the food is cold when you get back

not to make you more nervous but my reservation showed up in MDE basically instantaneously and I got an e-mail confirmation pretty quick. Might want to call when you get a chance to confirm

I would make another resi if you can. If you do it online while logged in to MDE it'll tell you if you've already got one. If you end up with two then just cancel one.
