Experience the flavors of the Pacific Coast at this award-winning restaurant.
Via private elevator, ascend to the 15th floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where you’ll discover exquisite panoramic views of the shimmering lagoon, Floridian woodland and Cinderella Castle. Inside, enjoy the vibrant sights and sounds of the lively onstage kitchen, where chefs combine global flavors in deliciously inventive new ways.
Californian cuisine celebrates fresh, seasonal ingredients and the international, melting-pot culture of the Golden State. Changing seasonally, the menu may include such specialties as handmade Sonoma goat cheese ravioli, steamed mussels and oak-grilled filet of beef.
Delight in mouthwatering sushi, as well as brick oven-fired flatbreads topped with roasted chicken and caramelized onions, sun-dried tomatoes and three cheeses, or black beans and braised pork. Then polish off a perfect meal with decadent desserts like warm Valrhona chocolate cake, cheesecake and fruit cobbler.
To complement their entrées, Guests 21 years of age and up can select from over 300 hand-picked wines—most of which are from California. Over 50 are available by the glass, and sommeliers are on hand to offer pairing suggestions.
California Grill offers one of the best fireworks dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.
Lights dim as the music is piped into the restaurant—immersing Guests in the magic of the night.
Dining before the fireworks? Bring your receipt to the check-in desk on the 2nd floor for reentry to California Grill. Then, enjoy the show either from California Grill Lounge or the outside observation deck.
Guests with a dining reservation after the fireworks are also invited to watch the show from the lounge or observation deck.
Enjoy pre-dinner cocktails and first-come, first-served seating in the lounge, offering the same menu as the restaurant.
