  • Any good eating establishments at Disneyland or DCA?

    My husband and I will hopefully be going to Disneyland in May (23-28). I cannot believe it has been ten years since I have been to the park and it has almost been 20 years for my husband.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on where to eat at Disneyland, Disneyland hotels or DCA? Also, what kinds of food are offered at these establishments or restaurants? My husband and I do not have any children so we were hoping to know of a few places where adults can enjoy a great meal. :confused:

    I like Storyteller's Breakfast at GCH. Vineyard Room and Napa Rose are really nice for "special" meals. Yamabuki is really good for Japanese.

    I ued to like Catal, but last time the food was dry and the service was bad. I wouldn't recommend it now.

        Disneyland food largely sucketh unless you're heading for the Blue Bayou (bust out the AMEX for that one). The atmosphere of perpettual night by a moonlit bayou is very cool.

        My suggestion? Downtown Disney.....The House of Blues has some really good chow. I can't recommend the rosemary cornbread enough.

        The Jazz Kitchen has a walk-up express window with some really tasty red beans N rice. But the food and the ambiance inside the JK is just incredible for a couple such as yourself. Try to get a table in the bar/bandstand room for some really REALLY good music by Kenny Sara's band....and they do take requests. Was there with a former GF one night celebrating two years and they played 'Blue Moon' for us.

        Good luck.....sounds like a very cool way to celebrate!

          Disneyland food sucks? I've never had a problem with it...they could perhaps use more sit-down restaurants, especially in the parks, but I've never had particularly bad food...certainly the same quality as I have seen at WDW.

            It's just a personal opinion of mine. I just dont think their stuff is worth what they charge for it. If I'm gonna pay thru the nose for a meal, it's gonna be in a better place than an amusement park restaurant (and I use the term very loosely). The eateries of DD are simply of considerably higher quality than what they have behind the berm.

                Mint Julep has the best salads with their Pineapple dressing. I would LOVE to know where the get that stuff.

                The Blue Bayou is pricey but great. Dont forget to make a reservation.

                The French Market is good too.

                    I agree w/ malibu- great suggestions. One thing to keep in mind about food in the resorts is that you really do get what you pay for- the more expensive places really do deliver with great food. For a quiet, romantic atmosphere (which is probably what you are going for) I would suggest Napa Rose or The Blue Bayou. The Vineyard at DCA and the PLaza Inn also have excellent food. Just remember wherever you decide to eat, call ahead and make reservations so you aren't stuck waiting or worse, having a hot dog instead.

                        I find that a Turkey Leg and a quiet bench along the Rivers of America can be nearly as romantic as the Blue Bayou(and much, much cheaper)

                          Redd Rocket's not only has pizza but salads and fairly delish pastas. DH and I share the chicken fusilli pasta, the portion is huge. I never cared for their pizza however, too cardboard-y.

                            IMHO, Blue Bayou is highly overrated, whereas Vineyard Room is one of the most underrated restaurants in the entire SoCal area. While I've never been to Napa Rose, it's hard to imagine a better experience than what you get at the Vineyard Room.

                              This used to be one of the best values available along with being excellent but I thought it vanished when BTBBQ was closed. Is it available in another location?
