The popular California Grill restaurant at Walt Disney World's Contemporary Resort will reopen to guests on September 9, 2013 following a lengthy refurbishment.
The California Grill has been closed since February 1, but has begun opening for media previews. The updated menu continues to feature sushi and grilled dishes, and the kitchen is visible to guests in the dining room. Floor-to-ceiling windows and three observation decks are designed to provide perfect views over the nearby Magic Kingdom.
The observation decks offer a great perspective on the Wishes fireworks display at the Magic Kingdom, as can be seen in the images below:

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.
