    Hi, we have reservations WDW California Grill Dinner at 09:50PM and I saw that the service is only until 10PM. I’m worried that since it’s close to closing time that we wouldn’t be able to have a proper dinner. Do think I should cancel?

    Royal greetings, Michelle!

    A warm welcome to planDisney, and thank you for bringing us your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. Your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just a couple of short months away - how exciting! Let's get you prepared for an enchanting and memorable meal at California Grill.

    Michelle, when you arrive at Disney's Contemporary Resort, you'll want to proceed to the check-in area for the restaurant, which is located on the second floor of the Resort hotel. From there, you'll take an elevator up to California Grill, where an unforgettable dining experience and incredible views await you! I'm excited to hear that you'll be enjoying a late dinner at this signature restaurant, Michelle. I'm happy to confirm that you'll be able to enjoy your meal at your leisure, as the restaurant doesn't close at 10:00 p.m., it just means that additional parties and reservations will not be taken past that time. Dining outside of peak dinner hours will likely make for a relaxing and more intimate experience.

    This dining location features a fireworks viewing area designated for the exclusive use of Guests dining at California Grill. I encourage you to check the Hours & Events Calendar for the date of your dining reservation, Michelle. If your reservation falls on a day when Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party takes place, it's likely that you'll have a spectacular view of Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks from the restaurant!

    Michelle, I hope this information helps you to prepare for your memorable meal at California Grill. If you have any additional vacation planning questions, please revisit us at planDisney anytime. We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Find Your Happily Ever After,
