    Counting the days until our upcoming May adult trip! We have dinner reservations at California Grille the day we have Magic Kingdom reservations. What’s the dress code? Do we need to plan to get out of park gear and into something nicer? TIA!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Michelle!

    Thank you for stopping by once again with an excellent question. I am excited to hear you will soon go on an adult trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! Although I love visiting Mickey with my girls, traveling with adult friends means I get to book my favorite signature dining restaurants.

    You are going to have a pixie-dusted time at California Grill. The restaurant is located on the 15th floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, so get ready for beautiful panoramic views of Magic Kingdom Park and Seven Seas Lagoon. I love enjoying the sunset while dining at California Grill, but if you time your reservation right, you may catch Magic Kingdom Park fireworks during your meal.

    This restaurant offers a signature dining experience, so Guests are expected to dress accordingly. Clothing should be neat, clean, and in good condition. The atmosphere at the restaurant is sophisticated, so I usually make reservations for days I do not plan to visit the parks because it gives me the chance to dress up a little. I already had dinner at California Grill after leaving Magic Kingdom Park, and we wore casual clothing like jeans, tennis shoes, and t-shirts. I have friends who like to rent a locker at the park and change before going to the restaurant, but you will see many Guests dressed casually. Many will have also just arrived from the parks, so I believe you should be fine.

    I hope this information is helpful, Michelle. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
