California Grill Reservation?

Hi! Philadelphia Chowhound heading to Orlando/Disney for spring break family vacation.... According to the DIsney reservations agent, California Grill is fully booked next week at all dinner hours. Are there any local secrets to getting in??

  1. Not sure how many in your party, which night you wanted to dine there or if you had a specific reservation time in mind, but you can try to book a reservation online at the website:

    It's a little more convenient than going through the dining reservations agents. Be warned...the week before Easter is probably going to be tough, but it isn't impossible. I did a random search for a party of 4 for dinner on 4/21 and there was a reservation available at 9:20pm. Good luck and I hope you get in!

    1. How many in your party?

      Walk up early or late and if they can't fit you in, 90 percent of time you can find table in bar/lounge area.

        We are a party of 4. We love eating in bar/lounge ares -- great idea -- thank you! The website shows no availability before 9PM, which is just too late for us..... Thanks for the tip!

          Get there at 6 shouldn't have a problem. You have check in on second floor.

      2. I have a reservation for the 23rd but we made it back in January.
