    We're staying at Bay Lake Tower Villas. The adults would like to have a drink in the California Grill one night. Can you do that or do they only service drinks with purchase of a dinner? Thanks.

    Hello Loretta!

    One of my favorite ways to experience the California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort is at their Lounge.  There are two options for seating in the lounge area: a traditional bar area and comfy lounge seats.  I recommend trying to sit in the lounge seat area.  They afford amazing views of Magic Kingdom Park.  You are most certainly welcome to enjoy just drinks while you're visiting the California Grill Lounge, however, I highly recommend sampling some of their delicious flatbreads or deserts. :)

    Space at the California Grill Lounge is first-come-first-served and fills up quickly.  I recommend arriving around 5:30-6 in order to have the best chance of getting a seat.  The Lounge will be at capacity once the time for Wishes Nighttime Spectacular approaches.
