    Best way to get group of 6 from old key west to Calif grill, and am I correct in assuming we do not need a theme park ticket to eat there?

    Hi there, Keith! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    You and your family are in for quite a treat! California Grill is perched atop the fifteenth floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort and offers some of the best views of the Magic Kingdom and Seven Seas Lagoon! In addition to these sweeping views, Guests can expect to taste some of California's finest foods and drinks during their meal. 

    My go-to recommendation for any Guests searching for a ride to another Disney Resort hotel is the Minnie Van Service! This personal ride service whisks Guests across Walt Disney World Resort and is easily reserved and paid for right from the Lyft app. Guests can also expect to experience the world-class customer service Disney is known for as all Minnie Vans are operated by Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members! One Minnie Van should also fit your party perfectly as standard Minnie Vans are large enough to seat up to six Guests!

    You are also correct in that no park ticket is needed to dine at California Grill! This dining location is located inside of Disney's Contemporary Resort so all Guests may visit free of charge! 

    I hope this information will assist you in planning a spectacular evening dining at California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort!
