You probably walked by Café Orleans many times near Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion. The inviting outdoor ambiance is enough to turn heads, but the meals served here is what really keeps this place packed.
The dining area indoors is a very small, I suggest eating outside when the temperatures permit. I’ve dined inside twice in the seating arrangement is just awkward and uncomfortable.
Café Orleans Quick Info
Are you here for the Monte Cristo? Everyone raves how totally delicious they are but I am going to tell you right here, they aren’t my thing. However, there’s plenty of other things on the menu at Cafe Orleans ensuring everyone will want to eat at Disneyland Resort’s Cafe Orleans.
First, a few important details on Cafe Orleans:
- Cafe Orleans is located inside Disneyland Park in New Orleans Square.
- Disneyland theme park tickets and appropriate reservations are required.
- This restaurant is indoors and outdoors, with a majority of the seating outside.
- Open for lunch and dinner, see Cafe Orlean’s full menu here.
- Make reservations here up to 60 days in advance.
When you arrive at your reservation you can let the host know if you prefer indoor or outdoor seating. I recommend dining outdoors at this location.
Cafe Orleans Disneyland Menu
We’ve talked about the Monte Cristo, but there’s much more to dine on here including a cheese only Monte Cristo your kids might really enjoy.
The menu may change seasonally, but this gives you a decent idea of what to expect when you arrive.
I’ve also taken a snap shot of the allergy menu if you need gluten-free or other options at Disneyland, Cafe Orleans is a great choice.
The kids menu has your standard flair, including some of these Disneyland kids favorites. My kids usually get the cheese Monte Cristo and split it between 2 of them.
And of course, you’ll need to order some of their famous Parmesan-Garlic Pommes Frites and Cajun-spiced Remoulade to go with whatever you order at Cafe Orleans!
Cafe Orleans Best Drinks
While alcohol has been introduced to two locations inside Disneyland Park at Oga’s Cantina and Blue Bayou, Cafe Orleans remains dry.
For now, you can get your standard fountain drinks or the famous non-alcoholic Mint Julep, pictured above.
Complete Disneyland Dining Guide
Disneyland Resort is full of foodie finds. You don’t always need a reservation to eat the best food. I prefer to have one sit down reservation each day during my trips but there’s so much to eat and taste, don’t worry if you can’t snag one.
