            Next to Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta. It's where the giant McDonalds burger used to be.

              They have some pretty good pasta there. It's probably the restaurant I go to the most at California Adventure, besides perhaps Wine Country Trattoria, so I'd recommend it. During the holidays they often have performers at the restaurant courtyard which is a nice touch.

                  Oh yes, the infamous Burger Invasion. I do miss the S.S. Rustworthy, though. That was a nice touch to the courtyard.

                    I've always liked the idea of them doubling down on the S.S Rustworthy concept of a shipwreck either next to or straight through the pier itself (it could even explain why the pier was built where it was to begin with). But like, instead of a kiddie playground, build an actual, giant ship wreck that people can walk in and out of that could contain it's own attractions, shops, etc. inside of it. Imagine stepping off the pier and into the hull of the wreck, waterfalls pouring throughout the inside of the ship and the echoing sounds of 'em.. now that would truly be an S.S. Rustworthy bit of DCA that could evoke feeling and be loosely inspired by "California culture" (USS Midway, Queen Mary, Seaport village?).

                    But I'm off topic. Sorry!

                      This sounds infinitely cooler than whatever Pixar Pier is.

                        Newb to the forum, but have been going to DL and WDW hardcore for decades, especially as my son grew up with DL resort. I had a question about the reservation process right now for dining (I tried a search, but didn't find results I wanted).

                        If the Blue Bayou rezzies open up on May 18th, what time should I be in front of my computer? I saw something online somewhere that said 3am PST, but that seems arbitrary, unless it's the East Coast 6am start of day.

                        Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

                          I’m guessing rezzies on Monday will be something of an s—tshow again but maybe i’m just being an Eyeore about it. I’m going to try early Monday too.

                            Tried this morning to snag a Blue Bayou reservation for our June 19th visit and failed miserably.

                              I believe they go live Midnight P.T.

                                Reservations went live at 7:00am Pacific Time (that’s my estimate based on what I experienced). I hit the Blue Bayou dining page at about 6:00am and got put into the Waiting Room page until about 7. Around 7:00 a countdown time started showing up and bounced around from 1-4 minutes till it let me in. I got a dinner Res for May 29th. It appeared to me that all the reservations got snapped up in about 10-15 minutes.

                                  Did anybody get a Blue Bayou reservation? When I looked this morning I only saw Storyteller and Napa Rose showing up. But just a few minutes ago I snagged an Alfresco Terrace reservation, which makes me think they didn't all go live at the same time.

                                    I logged on last night at midnight and again at 3, 6:55, 7:55, etc. No BB, but grabbed a Napa Rose. Then realized I already had a Cafe Orleans. Oh well, maybe I can get a BB walkup.

                                      I got up this morning at 6am PST and logged on to the reservation system. The mobile app kept telling me to go to the actual website and would not let me make a reservation. On the website, the site put me into a queue - a long one. The counter finally got down to "less than one minute" but then it started counting up again until it got to 12 minutes. Finally it started counting down and then I actually got into the reservation system. I hit gold. I got a reservation for Blue Bayou on the one night we don't have dinner reservations at the end of June.

                                        I got a Blue Bayou reservation for 5/29 shortly after 7:00am. They we’re all gone for the day I checked within about 10 minutes. Maybe less.
