    Hi Amanda! Family of 6. Kids are 15, 11, 8, and 8. Can you share some of your favorite TS and QS restaurants at the Disneyland Resort? What restaurant would you suggest for our day of arrival? (dinner) Should we dine at Napa Rose sans kids? Thanks!!

    Hi there Jodie,

    I must honestly admit that I probably spend more time "eating" at Disneyland than the average guest!  I am a foodie at heart and I find the Disneyland restaurants to be as exciting as the actual attractions!  I could probably go on and on forever about my favorite locales, but I have taken the liberty of listing my top picks for you below.

    Disneyland Park:

    Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe (QS)
    Carnation Cafe (TS)
    Cafe Orleans (TS)
    Blue Bayou (TS) ** Top Pick**

    California Adventure:

    Flo's V8 Cafe (QS) **Top Pick**
    Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge (TS) **Top Pick**
    Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta (QS)
    Cozy Cone Motel (QS) **Snacks and Cool Drinks**

    Disneyland Hotel:

    Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar (TS) **Must Do**
    Steakhouse 55 (TS) **Top Pick**

    Grand Californian:

    Storytellers Cafe (TS)
    Napa Rose (TS) **Top Pick**

    Downtown Disney:

    Naples Pizzeria (TS) **Top Pick**
    Catal (TS) 

    I would suggest taking it easy on your arrival day.  This might be the perfect time to check out Downtown Disney and grab a delicious pizza at Naples Pizzeria.  This is a sister restaurant to Via Napoli in Epcot and the pizza is similar and super yummy. Another option would be to book a reservation at Steakhouse 55... but leave time to stop in to Trader Sam's beforehand for an appetizer or fruity drink before dinner!

    I have dined at Napa Rose both with and without my daughter.  While Napa Rose is the perfect venue for a romantic evening for two, it is also very family friendly and your children will be welcome!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
