Would You Order a $137 Cocktail at Walt Disney World?

California Grill is considered one of the best restaurants at Walt Disney World. The food is exceptional, and the views of the Magic Kingdom are the best outside of the Theme Park.

Disney’s Contemporary Resort opened on October 1, 1971, so it is only fitting that there is a special menu for the World’s Most Magical Celebration. Instead of ordering a la carte, a special three course dinner is served. The cost is $89 per diner ten and older, and $59 for those ages three through nine.

There is more to the 50th Anniversary Celebration Menu than just food. A meal at California Grill is not something that you want to rush through, so there are special drink offerings as well.

You’ll find an extensive wine list, cordials, cognac, whisky, and other top shelf selections. There are several specialty cocktails on the menu.

While most of the specialty cocktails range from $15 to $25, there is one that stands out. It’s called California Grill Signature Cocktail. Here’s the description:

California Grill Signature Cocktail costs $137. Considering that a one-ounce pour of Rémy Martin Louis XIII costs $175 on its own, you might make the argument that California Grill Signature Cocktail is a bargain!

Of course, you need the right meal to enhance your California Grill Signature Cocktail. You will choose one appetizer from Market Inspirations, one entree from Chef’s Journey, and one dessert from sweet creations. There is one plant-based option in each category.

If you can’t decide which dessert sounds the best, try Five Magical Bites 50 Years in the Making. It features five different flavors.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
