Dinner at California Grill and a little visit to MK (Wednesday, Nov 13th) We headed over to the Contemporary for dinner at California Grill. To be totally honest, our last few visits here were disappointments, but we decided to give it a try after the refurb. We checked in downstairs and confirmed that we needed a booster seat. We hopped on the elevator and were seated promptly - right next to the area where the food comes out (we realized this week that when dining with a 2 yr old you generally get placed at the worst table in the restaurant - not shocking, but still disappointing). We didn't get the booster seat or a kids menu and had to ask. It took over 15 minutes for the booster seat to arrive, and our server literally threw the kids menu on the table. Apparently CG does not have crayons or coloring stuff for kids, so DH ran downstairs to our stroller to grab our bag of activities for DD that we had forgotten. This is where things got a bit ugly! DD dropped her pacifier, and when I ran around the booth to get it, she leaned over in the booster seat and fell out of the booth into the floor. It was like a slo-mo flip, Olympic style. My fault, but not a single person came to make sure she was ok (and our waiter saw it all happen). She was upset, I was upset BLECH! It was awful! Luckily, she was fine it just scared both of us. DH returned just then (lucky to have missed the drama) and we finally got to order. DD had the kids pasta that came with broccolini. She ate every single bite. DH and I ended up sharing several dishes because we couldnt decide on just one and some of the appetizers/sushi were more appealing to us than the entrees. So, we shared the tuna 4 ways... Pork belly nigiri... Dragon roll... ...and Duck in all it's Glory. Our bread arrived after the food came so we didn't eat much of it. We also had 2 rounds of drinks, wine and beer though I dont remember what we ordered! We also ordered dessert. DD's meal came with the fruit skewers (which we had to ask for). She loved these, especially the yogurt dipping sauce. Sorry I took the picture after removing the skewers - consider it "deconstructed" fruit skewers! DH and I had coffee (we were heading to MK after dinner so needed a caffeine boost!). We shared the seasonal tasting dessert, which featured apple. It was good - but the apple creme brûlée was our favorite part. Overall the food was good, but our server was pretty terrible. Dishes were plopped on the table with no explanation, and our server just wasn't very attentive at all. He kept referring to our meal as "appetizers" and seemed annoyed that we didn't order main dishes. But the 4 dishes we did order, along with 2 drinks each, a kids meals, and dessert/coffee, was well over $200 - so not exactly a paltry order. Also, the meal took 2 hrs and we missed most of the MK parade. We have done a lot of high end dining over the years, and this just didnt live up to our expectations. I hate to be negative about the experience, but it seemed similar to other reviews Ive seen (though some are good, so it just seems very inconsistent). Unfortuately, we won't be back here anytime soon. After we finished at CG, we quickly hopped on the monorail to try and salvage the evening. I love, love, love the Main Street Electrical Parade, and was really hoping to see it. We raced through the park, and managed to see the end of the parade over near Liberty Square. After the parade finished, we headed back to the entrance area of MK to watch wishes (thinking wed make a quick getaway to the bus depot as soon as it was over). We watched some of Wishes, but unfortunately, my heart just wasnt in it after a frustrating night and DD wasnt in the best mood either. So, to avoid any further melt downs, we headed out and grabbed a bus back to YC .knowing that tomorrow would be another day .and one in which we got to meet DDs absolute, all-time, favorite Disney Jr character (and the inspiration for our TR title)!! Coming Next: Disney Jr. Dine n Play at Hollywood and Vine!
