Walt Disney World has released a series of rendering showing how the California Grill, the signature restaurant at Disney's Contemporary Resort, will appear after a lengthy refurbishment.
The images, embedded below, depict the restaurant's dining room and kitchen, which will be visible to guests. The California Grill will close for refurbishment on February 1, and is expected to reopen in late summer 2013. The Disney Parks Blog recently offered a preview of its updated menu, which will continue to offer sushi and grilled dishes.
Situated at the top of the Contemporary Resort's iconic A-frame structure, the California Grill is one of Walt Disney World's most popular restaurants. It is also one of few dining locations at the resort to enforce a dress code. The restaurant is a popular venue for couples, who can watch the Wishes fireworks display at the Magic Kingdom from its windows.
