    We have eaten at Ariels Grotto and Blue Bayou. Both awesome. For our next visit I want to take my kids to restaurants that are really fun. I know Cozy Cone and Flo's are a must do, but can you recommend a restaurant or 2 in Disneyland that's neat?

    Hi again, Lisa! 

    You’re definitely on the right track with the must-do restaurants you've already selected! Flo’s V8 Cafe is my new go-to eatery at Disney California Adventure Park, and you just have to try the Chili Cone Queso and flavored popcorn (my favorite is the dill pickle) at Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land

    I recommend that you go to Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue in Frontierland at Disneyland Park for lunch or dinner. It’s a family-style, all-you-care-to-eat feast in a rustic outdoor ranch setting that features live country music and high-energy entertainment. The lunchtime menu includes barbecue chicken and ribs, cole slaw, ranch beans and cornbread, and at dinner you’ll dine on all of the items served at lunch in addition to smoked sausages and corn on the cob. There are also vegetarian meal options available. If you have room for dessert, indulge in the S’mores Bake, a warm chocolate brownie topped with roasted marshmallows, graham crackers and hot fudge! It takes about 20 minutes to prepare this treat, so order it a bit early. It’s worth the wait!

    Reservations can be made by calling Disney Dining at (714) 781-DINE or (714) 781-3463. I hope this helps, Lisa. Please let me know if you have any more questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
