Amazing meals are always on the menu at California Grill. After a recent refurbishment, the meals are still amazing. The decor is updated and very elegant.
One of the most amazing parts of the California Grill, though, is the view. Eating at the California Grill makes guests feel as though they are on top of the world – and they are! Guests can see all four theme parks from the windows of the Grill. Imagine dining from an award winning menu while watching the world from above.
As you can see, there is no bad seat in the house. With the new seating in place, guests can enjoy the view from anywhere in the restaurant.
If sitting at the table and enjoying the view isn’t enough, there are two balconies for guests to further enjoy their surroundings from the top of the Contemporary Resort. The biggest of the balconies faces the Magic Kingdom. While we (sadly!) can’t eat out there, no visit to the California Grill is complete without a bird’s eye view of the Magic Kingdom.
Cinderella Castle, Space Mountain, the Monorail – an entire kingdom is at your feet. Only the Contemporary Resort and the California Grill can offer this coupled with amazing cuisine.
If you are able to secure a table at night, the sights become even more amazing. Most nights Wishes is shown at Magic Kingdom. Guests are invited to view the fireworks from the tables or the balcony. The soundtrack of the show is played throughout the restaurant. While watching Wishes from in front of Cinderella Castle is special, there are two better views in my opinion. The top of the Contemporary Resort is one of them. (For those wanting to know, the second is from the Seven Seas Lagoon.) The ability to see the whole show with a panoramic view is very special.
So while we love to come to the California Grill for the food, we make sure to stay for the view. Oh, and speaking of the food, for those of you who are curious, here is just a sampling of some of the amazing dishes that the California Grill has in store for guests. But please, try not to drool on the computer screen.
So go ahead and make those ADRs. The food is amazing, the decor is fresh and new, and the view is unparalleled. Enjoy your meal and experience!
