    We are coming down to meet family at California Adventure and wanted to have a surprise 50th birthday. We are looking for something fun and has seafood options for one of our family members.

    Hey, Howdy, Hey, Richard! Welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing this question to us! We'll be happy to share some advice to help make this special family visit extra magical. 

    One of my favorite things is celebrating life's milestones at Disneyland Resort. It is 'The Happiest Place on Earth,' after all! A surprise 50th birthday is definitely something to celebrate with all the pixie dust! 

    My family loves Lamplight Lounge for its whimsical ambiance and creative menu offerings. It is located on Pixar Pier, right in the heart of Disney California Adventure Park. There are a few dishes featuring seafood currently on the menu, including a salmon poke and the lobster nachos that are a perennial favorite among many Guests! Menus are always subject to change, but this is surely one of my top recommendations! If you're looking for a fine dining experience, I would recommend Carthay Circle Restaurant, which honors the Carthay Circle Theater that premiered Walt Disney's first feature-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs! The menu offers California fare and classic old Hollywood-era cocktails. There is usually a catch-of-the-day option, which might meet your seafood preferences! Don't forget that table service reservations may be made up to 60 days in advance of your visit, either online or in the Disneyland mobile app.

    I hope these are some useful suggestions for you and your family, Richard. Since you are celebrating a birthday, you might be interested in knowing more about special celebrations at Disneyland Resort. You might also consider picking up a complimentary celebration button to let Cast Members and fellow Guests know about your special occasion! It's always a fun way to announce your happy news to others, and you can be sure that merry wishes will be coming your way! If we can help with any other questions in the meantime, please come back and see us soon, here at planDisney

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
