The California Grill Serves Up Haute Californian Cuisine

One of the most renowned fine dining experiences at Walt Disney World, the California Grill is an upscale restaurant located on the 15th floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort.

Serving up haute Californian cuisine, the California Grill uses only the freshest ingredients and sports an impressively diverse menu.

Options include oven-fired flatbreads, fresh sushi, seared ahi tuna, oak-fired filet of beat, cast iron-seared bison, roasted organic chicken, and much, much more.
If you are looking to celebrate a special occasion in style, look no farther than the California Grill!

When making your reservation, be sure to request a table near the windows overlooking the Magic Kingdom.

This is crucial because if you come for a late dinner, you will have one of the most spectacular views of Wishes anywhere in Walt Disney World!

Dazzling Fireworks Show

Wishes is the Magic Kingdom's dazzling fireworks show, which begins each night at 10 PM.

The California Grill not only sports a gorgeous view of the show through its windows, but also has large observation decks where guests can watch the show in all its glory.

The restaurant's top-notch servers are usually careful to time your appetizers and entrees close to show time so that your food won't get cold while you watch!

This is a very good thing, as the food at the California Grill is some of the very best in Walt Disney World.


The Contemporary can easily be reached via Monorail from the Magic Kingdom.

The resort is the Monorail's first stop after you depart from Magic Kingdom.

The restaurant's check-in desk is located on level 2.

After checking in, you will be whisked up to the 15th floor on a private elevator.

All guests of the California Grill are welcome to use the restaurant's observation balcony to watch the Wishes fireworks display, regardless of reservation time.

If you prefer an early dinner and would like to spend a little time shopping or relaxing elsewhere, simply return later in the evening to enjoy the show.

If you are craving the California Grill's cuisine, but could not snag a reservation, know that all meals at the bar are served on a first-come, first-served basis.

Check in at the podium and request that you would like to eat at the bar.

Chances are you will be lucky enough to snag a spot, no reservation needed.

For a meal in the dining room, a reservation is absolutely required so be sure to call well ahead of time.
