It really is ridiculous how excited we all are about this re opening... but California Grill really is a special restaurant

My back up is Citrico's right now but I really want to see the new restaurant!!!

What if you get your tickets from UT?

There is a place under the 'My Disney Experience' part of the site/app to add the tickets to your account.

I hope I can get a reservation for late Oct, early November!!!

I apologize if someone already posted this, but don't have time to read through the thread.
Flying Fish has a had a boardwalk trio that looks a lot like this. Very cute and creative, but honestly, it wasn't my favorite because none of the three components made you go wow when you tasted them. Give me a CG Valhrona chocolate flourless cake any day! I hope that's not off the menu.

Read on the disneyfoodblog today:

California Grill Re-Opening Rumor: According to a Cast Member, the California Grill will “soft” open on September 2 and 3 with a Cast Member meeting on September 4th. Tentatively opening September 5th!

This gives me hope for our October trip

I'm a newbie either. I'm from Brazil. But as far as I read about it, It's a signature restaurant, the menu/food is amazing. The view is also fantastic, and watching/listening to Wishes Fireworks is a must do.

It's not our first visit, but when we "discovered" CG from youtube and other sites surfing the Internet, we are trying everyday to book a table, despite the RED message on Disney site (...check back for.... reopening)

I hope you get to dine at Cali Grill on your trip my fingers are crossed

Your description is perfect it really is a special restaurant the view is really amazing that alone is worth a visit... if you like sushi and flatbreads they are both specialities of the old California Grill as well as a fantastic filet and great desserts!

The refurb is going to spice up the menu and the decor was getting a little old so I think it will help with the aging atmosphere... the new restaurant will be like the old we are describing but even better!

I hope we can get an ADR for November! It would be amazing to dine there during the fireworks. Does anybody know if it's kid friendly?
