    Hi! With the Celebration at the Top recently announced, it seems like it is similar to the dessert party that used to be hosted there plus appetizers. Will California grill be open for dinner or will this party be the only way to dine there now?

    Heigh-Ho Henry,

    Walt Disney World continues to reinvent and create fresh new experiences with Guests and this also holds true in cooking up new menu ideas. California Grill's Pacific-inspired menu will look for some fresh new ingredients and recipes and even revisit past dish favorites to serve up for Guests for their new menu. Beginning October 2, 2021, Guests will not be able to make dining reservations high about Disney's Contemporary Resort at this firework viewing favorite for foodies. I recommend following the Disney Parks Blog for continued updates on the re-opening for future planning. 

    However, California Grill will host Guests, on select nights, through a reinvented experience called Celebration at the Top: 50th Flavors and Fireworks in the posh Sonoma and Napa Rooms. Guests will sample selections of specialty drinks, sushi and tapas-style foods during this cocktail hour leading up to the nighttime display of Disney Enchantment. And afterward, before the final curtain closes on this delectable dining experience Guests will enjoy petit-four, cordials and coffee before departing for the evening. This popular experience will probably be a Disney favorite and at the moment is in high demand, until California Grill reopens its dining room to Guests. 

    I hope this information is helpful and check out our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) and Panel Extras for more Vacation planning tips.  

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,
