California Grill is an amazing restaurant especially when it is firework time but due to the high prices, we will not be revisiting, but it was definitely worth the visit.

California Grill would be more easily recognized if it was renamed Disappointment Grill. This establishment came highly recommended by a Disney Corporate Alliance Partner, who promised a stellar culinary experience.

The only reservation that I could get was for 9:35pm, it will be our first trip. I was really hoping to see the fireworks from this location, will I still be able to? Can we get there a little early and go on the observation deck while we are waiting for our table and watch the fireworks?

Yes. And even if your seated, you can either watch from your table or go outside on the roof and watch. The wait staff will accommodate whatever you choose.
