    Will the California Grill be open by November 9, 2021?

    Hi there, Mark!

    We are thrilled to have you pull up a chair here at planDisney. Thanks for asking about one of my favorite topics in the world: FOOD! 

    When asked about the best overall dining experience at Walt Disney World, California Grill always pops into my top 3...and often is my number 1 choice! Between the California cuisine, sushi, and brick oven-fired pizzas, California Grill knocks it out of the park on variety and quality. Plus, nothing can beat being able to watch fireworks while finishing up the meal!

    I know you probably saw the same thing I did when going to make reservations for California Grill. The restaurant’s link shares some exciting news: Disney is working to create a special dining experience here for the 50th anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort! So as of this moment, they are not accepting reservations after October 2nd. But now that it is on your radar, I am sure you will be scoping it out to see if it becomes available during your travel dates. I unfortunately don’t have any information on when it will become available. 

    What I CAN tell you is that California Grill plans to roll out a new dining experience later this year, featuring a limited-time menu with menu items inspired by the restaurant’s history. Hope that is enough of a teaser for you to stay tuned for further announcements about this culinary gem!

    “Be our guest” again at planDisney as you continue to get prepared for your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Bon Appétit!
