California at the Contemporary

I usually have more than one mission when I book reservation at California Grill.  First, the food there is spectacular!   I’ve never had anything that didn’t provide great memories.   Second, the view from the observation deck is perfect for watching and photographing the Magic Kingdom fireworks show.  Magic Kingdom Fireworks

We have been lucky a few times to have a seat at a window overlooking the Magic Kingdom.  This most recent trip also landed us at a window table.

The flat bread appetizers are always delicious and provide a great to start to my meal.  Tonight I enjoyed the Oak-fired Filet of Beef – (Heirloom Tomato Risotto, Marinted Baby Vine Tomatoes, Basil, Tomato Butter)

The entire visit is special and I’m never in a hurry to leave.  After this dinner we move to the bar.  There’s plenty to choose from with 250 wine selections, 80 by the glass, an expanded sake list, eight kinds of craft beers and ciders and signature cocktails.

California in Florida.

Disney’s California Grill is an excellent restaurant with delicious food and a magnificent view of Magic Kingdom.

“California Grill is a Signature Dining restaurant that serves award-winning gourmet dinners and sweeping views atop Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Venture into this vibrant and charged atmosphere and watch the creation of culinary masterpieces in the on-stage kitchen.”

Tonights dinner began with Rotisserie BBQ Chicken Flatbread . . . Chipotle-Corn Salsa, Roasted Peppers, Smoked Cheddar.  You could almost make a small meal out of this flatbread.

Next was the Oak-fired Filet of Beef . . . Buttered Purple Stokes Potatoes, Broccolini, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Teriyaki Barbecue.  Steak and mashed potatoes go so well together.   I could have eaten two portions.

Finally was dessert.  Valrhona Chocolate Cake with strawberries and ice-cream.

this is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a final dinner at Walt Disney World.
