Great food, breathe taking view, and unbelievable service. My family and I have been coming here for many years. It has gotten better each time. One unique part to this restaurant is you may go to the roof top for a wonderful view of wdw.

California Grill is a must when visiting Disney World. Not just because the views of Magic Kingdom and the fireworks are so wonderful, but because the wood, wine and staff are "top drawer." We enjoyed our dinner so much the first night we arrived, that...More
