Official California Grill Open ADR Watch Thread
The intent of this thread is to let subscribers know when the newly renovated California Grill is allowing ADR's. At present, it is supposed to open 8/31/13 but reservations are not yet being accepted. Please post if you have any new information. I will check with Disney periodically and post as soon as I find out reservations can be made.

Here is the response I got from Disney when asked when we can start booking California Grill. According to this we should be able to book our ADR's now! Has anyone tried it lately?


Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World® Resort.

From time to time, we refurbish our offerings in order to continue to
provide a magical experience for our Guests.

As a part of that effort, California Grill will undergo a refurbishment
beginning February 2, 2013 and continuing through late summer 2013. The
restaurant will be temporarily closed during that time (please note,
dates are subject to change).

California Grill should be open by that time frame for you to begin
booking at the 180 days. Today, April 2, we are booking for September

We look forward to seeing you Real Soon!

Hopefully soon!

Well so much for being able to book now. I just tried booking September 29th online and it shows no times are available so I assume they are still not taking reservations despite the email I previously posted. I will keep checking...

country-mom-of-4 04-02-2013 11:12 AM

I called and nope - not taking them yet:(

They took 8/31/13 off the website, so I can't be sure that will be the opening date any longer.

Oh I hope the opening won't be pushed back since they aren't committing to August 31st now. We're really hoping to get in for our anniversary dinner in October. I checked again this morning and reservations are not open yet. I'll keep checking and will post again in a few days or as soon as reservations open up.

As long as it's open by the time I go on my trip the last week of October, I'll be happy.
