The California Grill serves the flavors of the Pacific at the Contemporary Resort. Located on the 15th floor via private elevator, the California Grill offers stunning panoramic views of the Seven Seas Lagoon, Floridian woodland, and Cinderella Castle. The venue is also prime seating for the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Spectacular. The restaurant features an onstage kitchen at which guests can watch chefs prepare their dishes. Guests over 21 years of age can also select from a list of over 300 hand-picked wines, most of which come from California. Sommeliers are on hand to answer any questions and to offer pairing suggestions.
Check-in is at the podium on the 2nd floor of the hotel, next to the escalators. From there, a cast member will escort you to the 15th floor via private elevator.
