California Grill Dishes

There are two signature dishes at this location you just can’t go wrong with. The first is my personal favorite, Oak-fired Filet of Beef, the sauce and perfect side pairing will make your mouth water every time you think back on your vacation. Calfornia Grill’s second signature dish is the Grilled Pork Tenderloin. They have phenomenal sushi here as well.

California Grill Recommendations

This restaurant still remains at the top of my list for dining locations at Walt Disney World. It’s always bustling and full of life with its open kitchen and open dining area. So fair warning, it can be a bit loud here when dinner service is in full swing. The sweep views through the floor to ceiling windows are ones you don’t want to miss. In the front, you can watch over the Magic Kingdom and in the back, it’s a more peaceful view over Wilderness Lodge.

Don’t have a reservation and want to try and get in last minute? You can always ask to be seated at the sushi bar or lounge where you will be limited to order just from the appetizer menu.

It is important to note that the check in desk for this location is on the second floor of the contemporary. From there you will be escorted up to the 15th floor. The only way to watch the fireworks from the two observatory decks on the 15th floor is to have a reservation for that evening at the contemporary. If you finish your meal before the fireworks begin, don’t worry! All you need to do is come back and show your receipt at the check in podium.

This dining location specializes in serving a wide selection of fine wine and seasonal California inspired cuisine. Be sure to come back after your meal or pick your dining time around the Magic Kingdom fireworks.
