We enjoyed a delicious lunch and visited with new and old friends. I loved meeting some of my online friends in real life – that’s always exciting! You could feel the magic in the air – being surrounded by fellow Disney fans.
I loved seeing Chip and Dale dressed up in their little tuxedos. Aren’t they just the cutest?!
Located on the 15th floor, the views from the California Grill are breathtaking. We ended up with a fantastic view of the Magic Kingdom. I could have stayed there all day just enjoying the view!
When we finished lunch, our server showed us to the balcony – offering even more amazing views. It was truly breathtaking to see Walt Disney World from the top of the Contemporary Resort.
What really made our view of the Magic Kingdom unique was that the California Grill is not typically open for lunch, dinner only. So seeing these views in the day time was extremely special.
The California Grill will close in January for a few months to complete a refurbishment. I’m already looking forward to visiting there again… I can’t even imagine what it must be like to see the fireworks from the restaurant!
A special thanks to Laura Spencer and the wonderful folks on the Disney Parks Moms Panel for a fantastic day. I hope the Moms Panel fan luncheon is an annual event – it was a great day connecting with new and old friends!
