    I’m trying to determine if the Celebration at the Top at California Grill will happen 4/14/22. There’s only 2 April dates and I’m checking literally 20+ times a day. Am I wasting my time?

    Hiya John - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question - we're so glad you're here!

    Trust me, as an avid planner, I'm no stranger to checking obsessively for those hard-to-get Advance Dining Reservations! California Grill definitely falls into that category, and it's no surprise why - from the amazing food and magical Cast Member service to the breathtaking views of Magic Kingdom Park and beyond, this is truly a memorable dining experience.

    I am also only seeing Celebration at the Top: 50th Flavors & Fireworks at Disney's Contemporary Resort on the calendar for April 2nd and 10th, but additional dates could be added. I've seen this happen with other in-demand experiences. As an alternative, the limited three-course 50th Anniversary Celebration Menu is currently offered at California Grill with classic favorites and some exciting new offerings just for this magical celebration.

    I was able to find a standard California Grill reservation for two at 9:30 p.m. on April 14th, but I understand that this is not the same experience. The moral of the story is to keep checking - other Guests' plans will change as the date of your visit approaches, and as that happens, different availability will pop up too. If you aren't able to secure a reservation you want, you can also check to see if Mobile Walk-Up List is available for a standard reservation. In my experience, this option is hit or miss but can be a good last resort.

    Celebration at the Top is on my list too, and I hope we both get to experience it during The World's Most Magical Celebration!
