California Grill closed for refurbishment (reopening date not yet confirmed) Feb 04, 2013 to Sep 08, 2013

California cuisine served 15 stories above the Magic Kingdom, featuring seasonal menus which can include flat breads, sushi, goat cheese ravioli, pork tenderloin, and creme brulee. Check in is on the 2nd floor. The California Grill is a signature dining location and requires two table service credits on the Disney Dining Plan. Advance dining reservations are strongly recommended. Proper attire is required. 

Dinner is served from 5:00pm to 10pm.

Drinks and the full restaurant menu is also available in the California Grill Lounge, with seating on a first come, first served basis. Reservations are not available for the California Grill Lounge.
