    Hello, how many floors is it to get to the California Grill and the observation deck/ Catwalk? Are there both stairs and elevators? Not to fond of elevators or heights but would love to experience this. Thanks

    Welcome back, Melody!

    The California Grill is my favorite restaurant because of the incredible views and delicious menu offerings. My husband and I have had many opportunities to view Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from a window table, but the view from the outside observation deck is our favorite. The restaurant and observation areas are located on the 15th floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort, and usually access is by an elevator exclusively reserved for California Grill Guests at the 2nd floor check-in area. If you prefer to access the restaurant using the stairs, just let the Cast Member know when you check-in. However, I suggest taking the elevator which is a non-stop ride to the top floor.   

    I hope this answers your question, Melody, and you can experience all that the California Grill has to offer. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance as you plan your vacation.

    Have a magical day!
