Disney California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort will be reopening on Monday, Sept. 9, 2013 following an almost six-month long makeover that included a menu overhaul, a new kitchen and updated decor. Reservations open starting Aug. 26, 2013

The spacious dining room is transformed with a modern style that captures the spirit of California throughout the design scheme.

Chef de Cuisine Brian Piasecki says that “California Grill always will be a place that’s creative, seasonal, sophisticated and fun.” Piasecki spent nearly a year perfecting a new menu “that’s all about the composed dish, tastes that are designed to complement each other,” he says.

California Grill has now a selection of 250 wines – 80 by the glass, 8 crafted beers, 9 varieties of sake as well as signature cocktails created by staff mixologists.

The restaurant is located on the 15th floor of the resort and overlooks the Magic Kingdom and Seven Seas Lagoon. Plan your dinner experience so you can enjoy a spectacular view of Magic Kingdom’s nightly fireworks display. The synchronized soundtrack is played inside the restaurant as well as at the two outside balconies.
