    Is California grille brunch included on the dining plan?

    Hi Roxie,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so happy because your question is about my all-time favorite dining experience at the Walt Disney World Resort. Brunch at the Top at the California Grill in Disney's Contemporary Resort is absolutely divine. I have enjoyed Brunch at the Top twice and my mouth is watering just thinking about it. You check-in for California Grill on the second floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort and are escorted on an express elevator to the top. With a complimentary Mimosa in hand, be sure to check out the expansive view while you enjoy live music.

    The menu does change seasonally because the chefs like to focus on the freshest ingredients. In addition to the entrees, you can count on there being charcuterie and sushi choices plus a Bloody Mary bar. The Cast Members will take such excellent care of you. We felt like honored guests and were happy to see our fellow diners in the restaurant felt the same. I highly recommend putting a nap in your schedule after Brunch at the Top. We so enjoyed our meal but were very full for quite some time. And don't forget to hang on to your receipt. With your receipt, you can come back to watch the Happily Ever After fireworks show from the observation deck!

    Brunch at the Top is included in the Disney Dining Plan, Disney Dining Plan Plus, and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. It is a signature dining experience so you will be charged two Table-Service meals per person for your Brunch. I found Brunch to be absolutely worth the expense and I hope you will as well. 

    Roxie, thank you for visiting us with another great question. I hope you will let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions before your visit!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H
