    Planning an 80th bday for my dad. 12 people attending. We would like a dinner at the California Grill, take a transport to Grand Floridian afterwards, and rent pontoon boats for the fireworks. Can Disney help or am I on my own. Can dinner be a set menu?

    Steven! This is MAGICAL!!!! 

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and sharing your wonderful question with us! 

    Let me begin by being one of the first to wish your dad a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    Your celebration sounds practically perfect in every way!!

    Give the Disney Dining Team a call at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. They will review menu options and help you plan a very special dinner for your dad.

    With your dinner planned, your next call will be to the Itinerary Planning team. Their phone number is (407) 939-1929. They can assist you with transportation from Disney's Contemporary Resort to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. They will also be able to assist you with the pontoon rental.

    One of my first events with the Disney Parks Moms Panel was a private dinner at California Grill. It was awe-inspiring. The food, of course, was incredible and the view was breathtaking.

    There are not enough ways for me to tell you how much I love what you are planning for your dad. Enjoy every magical moment!
