California Grill Lounge

The California Grill Lounge is a great way to experience the much-loved restaurant — and the view — without a reservation. Come early in the evening and snag a spot, and you’ll have access to the full restaurant menu. Stick around and you can view Magic Kingdom’s Wishes from arguably the best viewing spot around. Enjoy a drink, fresh sushi or a flatbread, or anything else from California Grill’s full menu.
