    Hello My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at California Grill & are going back in June 2024 for our 15 year anniversary, but would like to enjoy a few drinks at the bar only and not dine. Does the bar need reservations or can we walk up?

    Welcome to planDisney, Brian! Congratulations in advance on your Crystal wedding anniversary. I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate than at The Most Magical Place On Earth!

    I recently visited Disney World and was fortunate to stay at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and dine at the California Grill. The cocktails were delicious, and the meal was perfect, but the icing on the cake was the ability to view Happily Ever After from the balcony. What an ideal setting to celebrate with your wife!

    You and your wife will be happy to know that the California Grill Lounge and Bar does not require or accept reservations. It is a first-come, first-served experience. Head to the Cast Member host/hostess on the 2nd floor of the Contemporary to advise that you would like to have drinks at the bar, and they will let you know if there is room available and if you can take the elevator ride up!

    If there isn’t space available, may I make another suggestion? Hop on the monorail and head to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. On the same level as the monorail, you will find Enchanted Rose. The library-themed lounge room is dimly lit, has comfortable and private chairs, and would be an ideal setting to grab a cocktail to help you celebrate your anniversary.

    I hope this helps answer your question, Brian. If you have any additional questions or would like some more romantic recommendations, let me know!

    Cheers to 15 years (and many more)!
