    Question Watching Wishes from California Grill

    During our December wedding anniversary trip, DH & I would like to have dinner at the California Grill one night during MVMCP.

    Am I assuming right that we can watch and hear Christmas Wishes from the restaurant??

    Thanks for your help!!

    Sure you can but make early reservations. I tried to time it by making my priority seating 1/2 hour befor wishes and I waited over an hour to sit down.

    There are a limited number of tables that would have a direct view of Wishes, and of course they are coveted. However, there is an outdoor observation deck with speakers where the audio is piped in from the park where any of the patrons can go out and watch.

    I believe there is some leeway for guests with earlier and later reservations to watch Wishes as well, but I forget the details.

    I just ate there in March and when I made my reservations I made them for about 45 minutes before fireworks. That worked out perfectly as we had our appetizers and drinks before wishes and then we ate dinner and had dessert after! We were on our honeymoon so we had a table where we could view wishes from it, but I also took DH out to see the balcony. They will pipe in the music and dim the lights inside the building. Outside you can hear the music!

    Wishes can come true, if you believe in them with all your heart.
    And the best part is, you'll never run out of wishes.
    They're shining deep down inside of you.
