    Hi! I am going to Disneyland. I would love to try the Monte Cristo sandwich, but we want to split it because it is just too much. Does Disney charge any extra to split meals at Cafe Orleans? Or is there any other quick service in either park that has it?

    Hi Megan! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with your question!

    Ahhhh the classic Monte Cristo Sandwich - a true Disneyland Park icon! It's cheesy, savory, and crispy-battered, and the fruit preserves balance it all out with a touch of sweetness. Not to mention, powdered sugar on top! It is indulgent in every good way, but I understand why you might want to share it with a friend (or two)! In fact, we have done this in my family, on several occasions after learning the hard way that our eyes are often bigger than our stomachs! I haven't ever been assessed a charge for splitting a meal at Café Orleans, but we frequently just ask for an extra plate on the side and do the portioning ourselves. It would be worth asking a Cast Member upfront before you place your order, just in case. 

    At the moment, I have seen renditions of the Monte Cristo Sandwich at Café Orleans and on the Blue Bayou Restaurant lunch menu. Guests who are Disneyland Magic Key holders also have access to the Magic Key Terrace which currently offers a unique and fresh take with a Monte Cristo Corn Dog! However, all three of these locations are table service restaurants, so if a Monte Cristo is on your wishlist of best bites for your upcoming visit, I do recommend that you make your dining reservations up to 60 days in advance, as they can be very popular!

    I hope this is helpful, Megan, and I wish you many powdered sugar-covered smiles during your next visit to the 'Happiest Place on Earth!' If we can be of any more service as you plan your trip, please come back and visit us again at planDisney. We'd love to send more recommendations your way!

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
