  • [Question] Dining: Nice, but family-oriented

    My family will be traveling to the Disneyland Resort next month for my mom's 50th birthday. We'd like to take her somewhere nice and special, but we have 6-year-old in our party. What are some ideal places for this type of celebration and group of people? I thought about Napa Rose, but thought it might not really be kid-friendly. Does anyone have any suggestions? We'd like it to be somewhere in the resort where we can't eat at home (in the Bay Area). Thank you.

    Napa Rose is most certainly Kid friendly, they have a special menu for kids. Don't let it scare you away!!


    StoryTeller's is nice, altho' much more casual than NapaRose.
    Just countin' the days til the next visit!

      Have you tried Blue Bayou (The restaurant inside POTC) ? It's pretty nice in my opinion. I really like the environment of it and it just sets you in a good, laid back mood. They also have kid's meals so it is child friendly When i went, i asked to be seated at a water side table. It was just magical because your right up on the action They have great staff and the service is excellent ! It's a great perk to any Disney vacation.

      How many people exactly are you thinking will be attending ?

        I would also recommend the Blue Bayou we ate there for dinner and loved it!

            I'm thinking we'll try Napa Rose because we've never been there. The last time I ate at Blue Bayou, we weren't impressed with the menu. Granted, that was probably 2 or 3 years ago, so it may have changed. Isn't there a way to get menus ahead of time?

            Side note, is there a way to get these replies sent to my e-mail so I don't have to keep checking back?

                You will be most pleased with Napa Rose. It's in a league of its own.

                  If you are looking for a very nice and special meal at the Disneyland Resort then I don't think you'll do better than Napa Rose. The next closest choice would be Blue Bayou, but since you weren't too impressed with it then Napa Rose is your best bet, unless you have a connection into Club 33 that is.

                  While it's not in the Anaheim area and it's not unique to LA, the last time we had a special occasion family dinner on vacation I drove us up to Beverly Hills to Lawry's. That experience is pretty hard to beat.

                  But if you are looking to go somewhere on resort property for a special meal then Napa Rose is the way to go.

                    The Rainforest would be good for a group with widely varied ages.

                    If you sit by any of the aquariums, your 6 year-old will be entertained. Lots of fishes.

                    There's a 'lightning storm' every once in a while. The various jungle animals move a bit too.

                    It's sort of pricey, the food is not bad, but the atmosphere is excellent.

                    P.S. If you go for dinner, get the volcano for desert. But for 6 people, get only one. Me (53 year old guy) and 4 teenage girls usually can't polish one off!

                      Rainforest cafe is a pretty decent place for a large group and kids.

                        You can subscribe to the thread, but I think it just tells you that there is a new rely, not what the reply says.

                        I also reccomend the Napa Rose.
                        Good morning, son
                        In twenty years from now
                        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                        And I can tell you 'bout today
                        And how I picked you up and everything changed
                        It was pain
                        Sunny days and rain
                        I knew you'd feel the same things...
