Disneyland Restaurant: Blue Bayou
Open for lunch, dinner and Fantasmic! dining packages.
The vibe is twilight on the bayou, this famous Disneyland restaurant inside Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Blue Bayou is the most sought-after dining reservations in all of Disneyland Park. This super romantic dining spot is a favorite to many! Located in New Orleans Square.
We recommend pan seared salmon for a lighter fare or the famed deep fried Monte Cristo sandwich if you’re ready for a serious meal.
Bonus tip arrive early for your reservation and ask for a spot by the water.
Full Blue Bayou review coming soon!
Disneyland Restaurant: Cafe Orleans
Open for lunch and dinner.
The vibe is Big Easy casual at this Disneyland restaurant. Dine inside or outdoors with amazing views of the Rivers of America in New Orleans Square.
We recommend the deep friend Monte Cristo sandwich is a Cafe Orleans favorite, but I prefer the pommes frites and lobster cobb salad.
Bonus tip split the massive Monte Cristo with another adult or two! It’s that big!

Disneyland Restaurant: Carnation Cafe
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The vibe quintessential Disneyland restaurant with candy-striped umbrellas on the patio and a victorian indoor seating area. Located on Main Street, U.S.A.
We recommend anything with Chef Oscar’s name on it! The longest working Disneyland Resort employee retired in 2017 but you can still get some of his famous dishes from the menu at Carnation Cafe. For lunch or dinner, don’t miss the loaded baked potato soup.
Bonus tip ask to sit outside if it’s a nice day (and it’s almost always a nice day at Disneyland!).
Full Carnation Cafe review coming soon!
Disneyland Restaurant: Plaza Inn
Open for breakfast when dining with Minnie & Friends. While technically not table service as it’s a buffet, it does require a reservation so I wanted to include it here. All other meals do not require a reservation and are for walk up service only.
The vibe is casual fare with a lavish victorian backdrop. Eat indoors or dine under the pink umbrellas on Main Street, U.S.A.
We recommend Mickey waffles for breakfast, along with made-to-order omelets.
Bonus tip book your reservation for about 9:30 or 10:00 am so you can still get in plenty of rides when the park opens, then hop over for breakfast.

Disneyland Restaurant: River Belle Terrace
Open for lunch and dinner and Fantasmic! dining packages.
The vibe is the heart of Frontierland with down home, southern cooking! Dine indoors or on the patio at this Disneyland restaurant.
We recommend the pulled pork sandwich with tangy coleslaw, delicious!
Bonus tip River Belle Terrace books fast for Fantasmic! dining so book early (60 days in advance)
Full River Belle Terrace review coming soon!
I recommend making one sit down dining reservation per day of your Disneyland Resort vacation. Now the big question is, where will you choose to eat when making your Disneyland restaurant dining reservation?
