One of the finest dining experiences you can have on your Disney vacation is at California Grill. This signature dining experience is located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This dining location is one that you’ll want to experience! The menu changes often, as they use the freshest foods available to serve to guests. Sushi, salads, Goat Cheese Ravioli, Smoked Mussels, and a myriad of other unique foods grace the menu at the California Grill. Not only is the menu unique, but you can also view Wishes from the observation deck. It was recently remodeled, and now the ambiance of California’s finest dining atmosphere is at Walt Disney World. No where else on Disney property can you find a 12 course omakase menu….in other words, you trust the talented chef to prepare your sushi dishes for you, without you making requests. How fun!
Some things to remember when dining at California Grill:
- There is a dress code at this location. You’ll want to make sure and pack some dress shorts, a dress, collared shirts, or other “non park” clothes to dine at California Grill.
- If you dine BEFORE Wishes, you can show your receipt for re entry to the restaurant and view the fireworks. Dining after Wishes, you are welcome to watch the show from the observation deck as well.
- While children are welcome, we recommend that you visit this restaurant with older children or as adults only.
- ADRS are a must at California Grill.
Visiting the California Grill is a unique experience, but when coupled with a view of Wishes, it becomes some of Disney’s magic at its best! Guests are welcomed with a panoramic view of the Seven Seas Lagoon, and Magic Kingdom. With over 1600 bottles of wine to choose from, your dining experience at the reimagined California Grill is sure to make memories. Seasonal selections, along with traditional sushi and cheese boards, pair perfectly with the Napa Valley wines found here.
Overall, we give this dining location an “A”.
