California Grill if staying at Contemporary?

Four adults, an almost 3-year-old, and a 6-month-old are staying three nights at Contemporary with a theme park view. We have dinner reservations at Citrico's, Jiko, and Le Cellier. Should we change one of those for California Grill? And on another note, should we consider Narcoosse's instead of something? Thanks.

I prefer Narcossee's to Citricos and yes you should book California Grill. The restaurant is one of my favorites and I'm pretty sure it will be even better when it reopens in September. If you go to Allears.net or Tripadvisor you can look at all the reviews and decide.

I would change either Citrico's or Jiko to Californina Grill, if you can. You have chosen all Signature Restaurants that can take up to 1 1/2 to 2 hours for dinner. This is a very long time for a 2 yo and a baby to sit quietly in a restaurant. California Grill has more families with children than the 2 I mentioned and is more family friendly. And, worse case scenario, if you had to leave with a fussy child, you are near "home".
Good Luck and Have Fun

At this time nobody knows what all the menu and services changes will be at CG.

And personally I would suggest using an in-room sitter for both kids while at Signature Dining.

I would drop Le Cellier and add CG. LeCellier is good but there are better options in my opinion. I would also leave Jiko and Citrico's as is.

I would definitely add Cali Grill if you can, it is one of our favorites!

Although we were advised against it, we had a great time dining signature with our 6 month old last trip, so don't let others opinions sway you from bringing the kids. Have a great trip
