    Hello, are sneakers allowed at California grille?

    Hi Amanda,

    A reservation at California Grill is a special Walt Disney World treat. In addition to the fantastic food and atmosphere, you have an amazing view of Magic Kingdom and, if you are there at the right time, fireworks right before your eyes. It's a delight!

    California Grill does request that guests be a little more dressed up than regular theme park attire. Men are requested to wear nice jeans, khakis, dress shorts or other business casual pants. Jackets are optional. Women, similarly, are requested to wear dress shorts, capris, pants or a skirt or dress. Tank tops, shirts with offensive language, hats for men, flip flops and swimwear or swim cover-ups are prohibited.

    Sneakers are allowed, though my husband usually prefers to wear his "dress sneakers" or casual leather shoes to feel more comfortable in the signature dining atmosphere. We often dine at California Grill for special occasions, so being in dressier clothing adds to the celebratory feel for us. 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amanda. I hope your meal at California Grill is a highlight of your Walt Disney World vacation. Please check back with us if you have other questions about Disney dining. We love to help!
