It’s been a tough start to 2022 for Disney World.
The year began with some great holiday crowds that caused long waiting times in the parks, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has been falling for DAYS over the past few weeks and several supply issues are leaving guests disappointed with some Disney . The most expensive stores in the world. I, it looks like Disney’s luck hasn’t changed yet!
As part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Disney World, a new dining experience was presented at California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The restaurant is traditionally only open for dinner, however When we opened the My Disney Experience app today, we received a pop-up notification stating that “California Grill is not available for dinner tonight.”
It’s unclear what could be the cause of this unexpected shutdown, but that means all current bookings will be canceled and no more can be done for today, January 11th.
However, it is not uncommon for Disney World to cancel dining reservations for guests. The last time we saw major cancellations was when Disney World closed the parks due to the COVID-19 pandemic and announced that they would cancel all current dining reservations and special experiences as a result of the limited capacity, until the end of 2020.
Other restaurants at Disney’s Contemporary Resort remain open At the time of writing, guests looking for another dining option can check availability at Steakhouse 71 and Chef Mickey’s, or stop by Contempo Cafe for a bite to eat.
Currently California Grill is only expected to be available for dinner today. but we’ll keep an eye on updates, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for the latest updates.
