A Restaurant Review: The California Grill

Disney's california GrillMy wife and I are empty nesters and when we make our yearly trek to Walt Disney World, we like to include a couple of romantic dining experiences. Our favorite romantic restaurant is the California Grill in Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

What makes the California Grill so special is the great service, exquisite food and a fantastic view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks. Our server, Topher, never once made us feel rushed or just one of the crowd. His service was very personalized, and he made sure all our needs were met. Topher made menu suggestions, which turned out to be fantastic.
California Grill fireworksWhen going to the California Grill, we usually try to make our reservations forty-
five to sixty minutes before the fireworks display at the Magic Kingdom. When it is time for the fireworks, the lights are dimmed in the restaurant. You can enjoy watching the fireworks from your table. Or our personal favorite unique experience is to go outside on the walkway which is on top of the Contemporary Hotel for the viewing.

There are many fine restaurants at Walt Disney World, but we feel the California Grill is the best in the whole park.
