Thanks again for all your great pics from CG. This was by far the best dining experience my DH & I had at the world. I'll be sure to post our pics after we go in Sept. Great job!

How early are you allowed to go to the balcony before your table reservation?
1. I did a google search (orlando sunset) and it indicates that sunset in July is around 8:25 pm. If I am reading your email correctly, it sounds like the sun will have already set at the time your reservation starts.

2. You can go out to the balcony at any time - before, during, after dinner. There is no one controlling access to the walkway / door, once you are escorted from the check in desk, up the elevator, to the restaurant . If you show up for your reservation early (which is OK to do), you could get a drink from the bar and watch the sun set from the bar or the balcony!!

Thanks again for this great thread!!!! (I posted several months ago) I am now in planning mode for my trip in November and Cali Grill will be a must. Your pictures are amazing...I guess my ressie should be about 1 1/2 - 2 hours prior to Wishes, right?

I am going to check out your other photos when I have more time but I love the one in your siggie too!

First of all, congratulations in your pending marriage. I'm surprised you even have the excess mental bandwidth to think about vacation.

As for timing, it depends a little. If you are on the dining plan - which means you'll be having appetizer, entree and dessert, you might want to allow 1.5 to 2 hours. That way, you can be more certain of being finished and stroll to a speaker-spot.

On the other hand - if you are only having an entree and you know you are fast eaters, then 1 hr to 1.5 hr should be plenty!

Let's us know how it goes!

PS - What did you do as a cast member?

Awww, thank you for the well wishes on my upcoming wedding...I am not too stressed about it since it will be a small one and we are pretty prepared, for now anyway!!!

Thanks also for the dining tips...we will be on the DDP and like to take out time so I think I will plan 2 hours.

As far as the CM part, I was on the College Program back in 1990...I loved it. I worked in the Gourmet Pantry...it is now the Earl of Sandwich.

Thanks again! Love your pics!

We stayed at CBR - October 1990 - I remember the tie-in between Gourmet Pantry and the original Chef Mickey's (whose menu / cookbook I have somewhere in storage!).

Because of this thread I'm trying to swap our Artist Point ADR to Cali Grill. We moved from WL to CR and this dinner will be my 40th birthday dinner (my actual day even )

Thanks for the great pictures.

Question

We are planning our first trip to Disney with our 8 and 5 year olds. Would this be a good place to eat with children? We would love to eat here and watch the fireworks at night. Thanks
