If you’re as excited as we are about the debut of the re-imagined California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, then you’ll love what the blog team has cooked up. We’re hosting our first-ever resort meet-up and offering Disney Parks Blog readers the chance to experience the restaurant before the doors reopen to guests.

Our Disney Parks Blog California Grill Grand-Opening Meet-Up begins at 7:30 p.m., on Sunday, September 8. It’ll include the opportunity to sample dishes from the restaurant’s new menu and of course, some face-to-face time with the chefs. We’ll also enjoy Wishes! fireworks on the restaurant’s expanded view platform during the event.

  • How about a waitlist in case there are cancellations.

  • Sounds fun! (Giggle ^^)

  • Gregory, that graphic is of the Contemporary Resort. The square on top is The California Grill. And hundreds of people eat at Chef Mickey’s every day, so obviously most don’t have an issue with eating with the monorail going through the building.

  • I don’t get the graphic – who would want to eat in a restaurant with a monorail running through it?

  • Oh I love that you are having meetups at the resorts now!! I hope to make it to one in October when I’m down for the Tower of Terror 10-Miler!! 🙂
