    Greetings, I booked my ADR at 7 this morning at the 180 window plus my length of stay (5 days), and regardless of party size or time, I could not find any reservations for California Grill for dinner. Is it possible that it's all completely booked?

    Hello, Lydia,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  California Grill is a wonderful dining experience, and I certainly understand why you wanted to secure a dining reservation there.   With its popularity, it is understandable that there might not be availability.  I would encourage you to continue to check back either online or through the My Disney Experience app.  I know we've had luck finding dining reservations doing that and will wish you the same luck.

    If you can't get a reservation, you can still visit the restaurant's lounge if there is available seating.  And here is the best part of this, you can order off the entire menu!  If you happen to visit early in the evening, you can return later to watch the fireworks.  You will just need to keep your receipt and stop by the restaurant's check-in desk to be admitted back to the restaurant.  

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
