California Grill

This beautiful restaurant is at the top of the Contemporary Hotel overlooking the Magic Kingdom. It's the perfect place to catch the Magic Kingdom fireworks show at 8 pm (in the off season.) We made reservations for 8 pm. Be there on time with your entire group to get seated. The place was crowded, as everyone was waiting to watch the fireworks. We watched from the walkway outside the restaurant. Beautiful! And our meal was excellent!

The only drawback was the snooty person who checked us in and rudely asked if we had reservations (we did) because "if we didn't, we were out of luck." He wasn't your usual friendly Disney employee, but the lady working the check-in desk was sweet and friendly. Our waitress was great-I wish I could remember her name! I think it was Vicky. Go for the view and the food!
