River Belle Terrace at Disneyland is one of the places I keep coming back to, especially when I have a large group of kids hanging out with me for the day.

River Belle Terrace dining review at Disneyland Resort.

The meals at River Belle Terrace are crowd-pleasing and easy to share. The seating both indoors and outdoors make for a perfect Disneyland day. Reservations are recommended but some walk up spots might be available.

River Belle Terrace Atmosphere

Overlooking the Rivers of America in Frontierland, you really can’t ask for more iconic spot to sit and relax at Disneyland. River Belle Terrace has dining both indoors and outdoors with ample seating.

River Belle Terrace outside

 

If you’re hitting that sweet spot of around 70° to 80° you’ll love sitting outside under the shade of an umbrella and watching the Mark Twain Riverboat go by.

When it’s a little cooler or maybe the temps have topped 90°, you’ll want to head inside for dining at River Belle Terrace. I really enjoyed eating inside because the dining room wasn’t overly crowded for our group of six. The round tables are well situated for large groups and there’s plenty of space. 

River Belle Terrace Menu

River Belle Terrace is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it is one of the few sit-down restaurants available for breakfast. The menu at Riverbelle Terrace is full of down-home cooking and is sure to please everyone in your group.

You can explore the current menu online or via the Disneyland app. This is some hardy breakfast food including short rib skillet featuring slow-cooked short rib, eggs, potatoes and Texas toast.

I’ve always enjoyed lunch at River Belle Terrace, and the menu is the same for dinner but the portions either way are massive. This location is perfect if you’re looking to save some money and split meals. I easily split the pulled pork entrees between two kids. I usually order the friend chicken sandwich with a little kick to it.

On the side of most entrees you get a side of baked beans along with your choice of coleslaw, tater bites or seasonal vegetables. I have to confess though—I’ve never made it to the dessert menu here. Everything is so delicious and satisfying, I’ve been missing out on the famous monkey bread with cinnamon sugar . . . sounds amazing!

The kids menu isn’t the most kid-friendly thing you’ll see in the parks and is quite small compared to some others. Here’s a list of my top kid meals at Disneyland Resort to make planning a little easier

    What would be your recommendation for Fantasmic Dining? We have been told that Blue Bayou gets first pick of seats, then River Belle Terrace & last Hungry Bear (with standing room only) ?!
    Some people have commented that you can order from the regular menu if you don’t like the options given for Fantasmic Dining…is this true? We have 2 little ones who won’t eat much other than chicken nuggets/strips & fries!!

    • Blue Bayou doesn’t get first pick, their area is just different. Blue Bayou gets front and center. I had Hungry Bear (ordered regular menu for my kids), we arrived among the first group and sat right next to Blue Bayou guests, we were almost perfectly center. We sat, as did a couple rows behind us. But they do make everyone else stand with regular FASTPASS. Bring something to sit on since the ground can be quite cold.
