California Grill

    We have 9:30p Sunday dinner reservations at California Grill, but we are also considering adding Celebration at the Top Sip, Savor and Sparkle. Is the food served at Celebration light enough that we will still want dinner or should we cancel dinner?

    Hello Rene!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Dining at California Grill atop Disney's Contemporary Resort during the Nighttime Fireworks Spectacular at Magic Kingdom is one of my favorite Endlessly Magical memories of all of my Walt Disney World Resort vacations.

    The Celebration at the Top - Savor, Sip, and Sparkle Experience seems like a way to experience the same kind of magic without the formality of the Signature Dining when seated at California Grill.

    The "light bites" and refreshments offered during the Celebration at the Top - Savor, Sip, and Sparkle experience include Canapés, sushi and small plates inspired by the California Grill menu.  Usually, the offerings during these sort of events are unlimited, but everything that is being offered is relatively light. Whether or not the cuisine offered is filling enough for a meal depends on your appetites.

    If I were in your situation, I would not book both a full meal at California Grill(it is so filling and costly) and the Celebration at the Top - Savor, Sip, and Sparkle Experience for the same night. I would book Advanced Dining Reservations or grab a table at the lounge at The Wave... of American Flavors for a Table Service Meal before heading up the private elevator for the Celebration at the Top - Savor, Sip, and Sparkle Experience.

    With this plan you will are sure to be well-fed, while getting to experience 2 fantastic cuisines at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    Bon Appétit!
