California Grill Restaurant in Walt Disney World is located at the Contemporary Resort. This restaurant has a dress code. Men may wear khakis, slacks, jeans or dress shorts and collared shirts. Sport coats are optional. Women may wear Capri pants, skirts, dresses, jeans or dress shorts.
Tidbit: Even though this restaurant is located at a resort, anyone can eat here. If you are driving, just let the gate keeper know you have a dining reservation and he will let you park. If you are taking Disney transportation, you will need to take a bus from your resort to a park or Downtown Disney and then transfer to the bus for the resort where the meal is located.
This is a table service restaurant. You will use 2 table service credit when you dine here. Reservations recommended.

This restaurant starts accepting reservations 180 days in advance. To book your reservation, visit Disney Dining online or call 1-407-WDW-DINE or contact your Disney Travel Agent (I recommend Destinations in Florida).
Dinner; Meals include specialties as handmade Sonoma goat cheese ravioli, steamed mussels and oak-grilled filet of beef.
In the evenings they will pipe in the Wishes music and dim the lights so you can see the show.
My recommended reservation times:
Try to reserve an off time such as 11 am, 2:30 pm or 4:30 pm. If you want to see Wishes, book for about 1.5 hours before the fireworks are scheduled to start. You’ll likely have to wait on your table, so you should be finished with your meal about the time Wishes starts. They also have an outside viewing area.
We have never dined here. However, my friend Tammy did for her anniversary. Read Disney Dining Review of California Grill in Walt Disney World
