If you want to be able to pick your spot at the balcony, I suggest 10-15 minutes before Wishes starts. That’s what we’ve done both times we’ve gone and we’ve been out there with maybe one other couple, so we were able to line ourselves up with a perfect view. If you don’t have a preference where you stand or don’t mind standing behind someone, you can wait until showtime.
Cali Grill is always the highlight of our trip! I love going there. Hope you enjoy it too!
