    We have California Grill reservations. Prior to Covid they allowed seating in the Monterey Room in the back of the restaurant that overlooks Bay Lake. Do they allow for seating in the room now?

    Hi Ricardo! Welcome to planDisney.

    You are arriving at The World’s Most Magical Celebration in two short days! Keep your eyes peeled in all four theme parks for the golden Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues. They make fun and unique selfie backgrounds for lasting memories. You can find everyone’s favorite warm hug-loving snowman, Olaf, at EPCOT.

    There is no place more special to celebrate 50 years of magic than the culinary delights of California Grill on top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. In fact, I will be there next week myself to try out the 50th Anniversary Celebration Menu. I am eyeing the Braised Beef Short Rib Wontons, Handcrafted Wild Mushroom Ravioli, and the Five Magical Bites 50 Years in the Making.

    So, I was able to chat with a friendly Cast Member online. He informed me the restaurants do not share seating information. Nor, do they take advance seating requests. He did advise you should make any seating request at the podium. If you care to speak with someone directly at California Grill, feel free to call (407) 824-2222. To avoid being transferred to the dining reservation team, specifically request California Grill.

    No matter what time your culinary adventure is at California Grill, be sure to return or stay at the restaurant for an emotional viewing of the all-new nighttime spectacular Disney Enchantment. You can enjoy one of the two outdoor platforms for an unforgettable experience. The lights will dim and the soundtrack will be piped in while you stare with wonder at Cinderella Castle and the dancing night sky filled with fireworks. Enjoy your evening!

    Keeping it Magical,
