Beginning on October 3rd, California Grill will be hosting a special 50th anniversary dining experience, with a new, limited time three-course 50th anniversary experience. Reservations just opened today, and it was an ORDEAL, full of glitches, so here’s what you may have to deal with.
For a limited time, California Grill will be serving a prix-fixe menu for $89 per adult and $39 per child. The menu is inspired by the year of 1971, which is the when both Disney World and California Grill (known previously as Top of the World) opened. Reservations opened today, so we visited the My Disney Experience app, where we were able to select California Grill.
We were taken to the Reserve Dining screen, but when we clicked Find a Table…
…Disney sent us to the waiting room. The waiting room screen kept randomly refreshing too, adding to the frustration. Eventually, when we reached the final reservation screen, many dates and times were already gone.
So reservations for California Grill ARE open, but it might not be easy to get the reservation you want. We tried snagging a reservation and waited in the virtual queue for about 2 hours this morning. We’ll keep you updated if anything changes, and keep reading DFB for more Disney World dining and reservation news and tips!
