The California Grill Lounge is a great way to experience the much-loved signature restaurant in Disney’s Contemporary Resort — 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 Happily Ever After fireworks from arguably the best viewing spot around.
Enjoy a drink, fresh sushi or a flatbread, or anything else from California Grill’s full menu.
