    Hi Amanda! We're making our 1st trip to Disneyland this March as a family of 2 adults and a 9 y/o princess. What are your "must-do" dining experiences both in the parks and the resort hotels? Thanks so much! Love the moms panel!

    Mmmmmmmm...... I just LOVE eating at the Disneyland Resort, and with so many tasty opportunities it's not hard to see why!

    I have listed my dining "Must-Dos" below and have categorized them by area:

    Disneyland Park:

    Cafe Orleans - Be sure to try the Monte Cristo and Pommes Frites

    Blue Bayou - The setting is reason enough to go

    California Adventure:

    Corn Dog Castle - just because

    Mendocino Wine Bar - Not a restaurant but boasts a great selection of wines by the glass

    Wine Country Trattoria - great sure to request an outdoor table

    Disneyland Hotel:

    Steakhouse 55 - one of my favorites on property.  I love the food and the decor.

    Goofy's Kitchen - Great for kids of all ages.  Character Dining

    Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar - Fun and fabulous drinks in an incredible interactive environment.Great appetizers too.  Love the lettuce wraps.

    Grand Californian Hotel:

    Napa Rose: Fine Dining at its best... great intimate setting and fabulous menu

    Storyteller's Cafe:  Home to my favorite Character Breakfast featuring Chip, Dale and many woodland friends!  Also great for dinner!  Offers buffet and à la carte options.

    Downtown Disney:

    Catal- Spanish influenced upscale menu!  Great outdoor terrace.

    Naples Pizzeria- Yummy Neapolitan-style pizzas similar to WDW's Via Napoli (same company)

    Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen- Cajun favorites with a twist!  Live Music too!

    Be sure to call Disneyland Dining up to 60 days in advance to make Priority Seating reservations. (714)781-DINE.

    I'm all out of room! Please write back for additional info! -Amanda F.
