Default Celebration at the Top (Cali Grill)

Coming to the Cali Grill, starting October the 50th.

Celebration at the Top: 50th Flavors & Fireworks at Disney's Contemporary Resort - Opening October 2, 2021

Celebrate on Top of the World
Join us for an intimate event as we toast the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort.
Indulge in a high-energy cocktail party enjoying fine food, simmering sips and beautiful music while you await an incredible fireworks spectacular.
Upon your arrival, dine on culinary offerings, including sushi, small bites, favorite dishes from the California Grill menu, desserts and even some odes to our past. Guests ages 21 and over can also enjoy such libations from the complimentary bar as California wine, beers and cordials.
As showtime approaches, step out onto the intimate and private observation deck reserved just for Celebration at the Top Guests. Here, you can enjoy an incredible view of Disney Enchantment—the newest fireworks spectacular to light up the night sky over Magic Kingdom park. The lights will dim as music plays on the deck, so you’ll be immersed in the magic of the night.
After the fireworks, head back inside to enjoy a sweet spread of petit four desserts, cordials and coffee.
Pricing
Celebration at the Top: 50th Flavors & Fireworks at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is $129 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

Ha, just posted this in the other thread but well deserving of its own.

The inclusion of alcohol makes the price much more palatable.

Works for me, I'll be there more than once I'm sure...

This sounds nice for a no-kids trip. We will be there in Oct and I don't think it's worth it for the kids. Great to have the view of the fireworks, but it's probably time and money better spent with cocktails and dole whip on the beach at Poly, for us anyhow!

So, if I am interpreting this correctly, there are tables with food to go and get as well as a complimentary bar with beers and some reasonable (likely mid-tier) wines? Not ordered items, but go and pick? Sorta like a mini Party for the Senses?

If that's the case, this seems quite reasonable and we may have to consider for our later-October trip.

I wonder if it's also $129 for guests under 21.

Cheers.

I would think yes- anything that included cocktails of any sort adult pricing was adult pricing regardless…

If under 21 ticket prices are cheaper this may be something we try.

My niece may not want to come anyway- so it may not matter, but her mom (my sister-in-law) will

Cheers.

Will they be taking reservations before, say like at 5:30PM, or after the fireworks? Or is this celebration just offered in a two hour window?

I think this will be one seating per night, starting roughly an hour (or so) prior to fireworks.
