If you want to watch Magic Kingdom fireworks from the top of Walt Disney World’s Contemporary Resort without the full California Grill dinner experience, the new $99 ‘Celebration at the Top’ experience starting February 26 might just be the ticket.
Celebration at the Top, a new dining event coming to California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World Resort, allows guests to enjoy the Magic Kingdom Park fireworks spectacular from an intimate and private observation deck, while sipping drinks and savoring snacks.
Celebration at the Top Guests can check in at California Grill an hour before fireworks. After being whisked up to the California Grill, which sits on the 15th floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, participants will be taken to the secluded Sonoma and Napa banquet rooms to enjoy canapés, a selection of sushi rolled by the California Grill sushi chefs, a selection of flatbreads and other small plates. A complimentary bar offering craft beers, California wines, cordials and coffee will also be available.
Just before the night spectacular begins, guests will be lead to their private observation deck, which offers views of Bay Lake, Magic Kingdom Park and the fireworks. After taking in the show, they can return to the private room for petit four desserts including decadent chocolate confections and fruit tarts.
Check-in takes place at the California Grill check-in podium, located on the 2nd floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. A Cast Member will then escort you up to the 15th floor in an elevator exclusively reserved for California Grill Guests, and then escort you to the event location. Due to the limited capacity of this event, advance reservations are highly encouraged. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcoholic beverages. A valid form of government identification will be required to verify your age. Fireworks are not guaranteed as part of this experience. On rare occasions, fireworks may be changed or canceled without prior notice due to inclement weather.
Reservations for Celebration at the Top are now open for select Sunday evenings from Feb. 26-April 16, 2017. Cost is $99 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Complimentary valet parking is included.
