    I know Narcosess has a dress code, but are tennis shoes permitted? If so do you see many people wearing them? We have a dinner reservation for our Anniversary but I am not planning on taking anything real dressey to wear, a polo, dress shorts for my husband maybe a nice summer sweater and nice dress shorts for myself.

    Just trying to decide if I should change our dinner reservations or not.

    Thanks.

    When we've been there we've seen people in shorts and polos and others in dresses or sport coats. It just depends on the individuals.

    The dress code description which is printed in the dining plan brochures doesn't say anything about the types of shoes that one can wear. I'm sure you will be fine. Even though the signature restaurants have a dress code it is still very casual and most people dress that way. From my experience those that dress up are in the minority.

    We only bring Keens and flip flops with us on vacation so we will have to wear one or the other when we eat there. :)

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I was out shopping for some new clothes for our trip next month and it just suddenly popped into my head about the tennis shoes and wanted to make sure we would be OK.

    I love this restaurant and always go straights from the park, jeans shirt and sneakers, no matter where I eat I do not go back to my room and dress up, I'm on vacation. :)

    Do you think the casual dress as described above would work for Cali Grill, as well? We have ressies for both restaurants in Sept.

    We celebrated my mother's 70th birthday there and it was wonderful. I have to say the surf and turf was just ok but the Ahi tuna entree was INCREDIBLE. Sometimes I find the 'featured items' at the restaurants are mass produced and just ok. But, not a big complaint, just a personal observation.

    Happy Anniversary and Enjoy!!

    The dress code is exactly the same for ALL the Signature restaurants.
    V&A of course has it's own dress code.

    Just as an FYI, the dress codes for the signature restaurants are as follows:

    Men: Dress slacks, jeans, trousers, or dress shorts, short- or long-sleeved shirt with a
    collar or t-shirt required. Jackets are optional.

    Ladies: Jeans, skirt, or dress shorts with blouse, sweater or t-shirt, or a dress required.

    Not permitted: tank tops, swimsuits or swimsuit cover-ups, hats for gentlemen, cut offs,
    or torn clothing of any kind

    (Taken from the Dining Plan Brochure)

    Casual dress is appropriate for California Grill. It seems there are two schools of thought on the dress codes for dinner; some people like to go right from the park to the restaurant and others like to shower, change and get a bit more dressed up. Honestly, as long as you don't look like you just left the pool, you should be fine.

    Ancestry: That's it, but there is also a prohibition against t-shirts with "offensive" words or pictures..
    And the key to it all is the "not permitted" portion.The rest is a "suggested code"--what they would like you to wear. But you will see all kinds of shorts (for instance) that probably would not fall in the category of "dress shorts".

    And I am always puzzled about the "jacket optional" part--I could count on one hand the times I've seen a man in a jacket eating in a WDW restaurant.
    Why even mention it???
