    We'd like to go to california grill for dinner and fireworks. We have 1 year old twins who we'd put to sleep in their stroller before the fireworks. Will we be allowed the stroller in the restaurant and at the table?

    Hi Nick!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for stopping by with such a great question.

    California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is my favorite place to dine for brunch and dinner. I have dined here many times, and each meal seems to be better than the last! I love that the menu focuses on fresh seasonal ingredients. If you enjoy wine as much as I do, there are over 300 hand-picked wines to choose from. Sommeliers are on hand to help you pair your meal with an exquisite glass of wine. The view is also spectacular!

    Generally speaking, it has been my experience that strollers are not typically allowed inside of table-service restaurants. I’ve always left my stroller outside of the dining location in designated “stroller-parking areas.” It would be challenging to accommodate a stroller inside of California Grill, especially a double stroller. While I’m not sure this is an option for you, but if your children are still in a travel system, you could potentially bring in the infant carriers and place them on a seat next to you or even on the high-chair depending on the style of the high-chair.

    While visiting, be sure to take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located at each of the Theme Parks. Here you can change your babies on a full-size changing table, feed them in a quiet place, and even take a bit of a break from the parks. Also, if they haven’t had their first hair cut yet, I highly recommend taking them to Harmony Barber Shop at Magic Kingdom park. All three of my children had their first hair cut here, and it was an out of this world experience! Reservations are highly recommended and can be made starting 180 days in advance of your stay.

    Come back to see us real soon with any vacation planning questions. I hope that you have a magical time!
