Special Dining Experience for 50th Coming to Disney’s California Grill

We are counting down the days until we get to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary with “The World’s Most Magical Celebration“. On October 1, the 18-month long celebration kicks off! With the anniversary celebration in the works, we’ve already learned about changes taking place at Disney’s Contemporary Resort including new Incredibles themed rooms, as well as renovations taking place at The Wave Restaurant resulting in breakfast reservations being moved upstairs to the popular California Grill. Now, we’re learning a special dining experience is coming to California Grill – but details are limited.

Soon enough (beginning October 1), guests dining at California Grill during Magic Kingdom’s nighttime spectacular hours will have a chance to watch the new show called Disney Enchantment from the restaurant windows and viewing area. As Disney prepares for the 50th, we’re learning they have a special dining event planned. As shared via the Walt Disney World website: “California Grill is currently unavailable for bookings after October 2 as we create a special dining experience for the 50th anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort.”

Unfortunately, the details stop there! We’re sure Disney will announced what this special dining event may be in the near future, but right now, this leaves us without knowing if the special event is open to all guests or if it is a private event. We’ll be sure to share any further details Walt Disney World releases.

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
