    As a foreign traveler how can we book the Blue Bayou, if we don't have park tickets. Can we be assured we would get in if we book the restaurant in advance?

    Hello, dear Rick!

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your great question! Let's get right to it so that you can dine in style on your next Disneyland Resort trip! 

    I'm thrilled to share that you can make dining reservations for restaurants inside the theme parks and at the gorgeous Disneyland Resort Hotels up to 60 days before your visit. The first step is to create a Disneyland Resort account in the Canadian version of the website. After creating your account, simply browse ALL the fantastic options and find the ideal ones for your trip. 

    My favorites at Disneyland Park are the Blue Bayou Restaurant (which you already know about) and Cafe Orleans (their fries are the best in the park). At Disney California Adventure Park, I'd strongly recommend the Carthay Circle for indoor or alfresco dining. Both menus are exquisite, and this is currently my favorite Disneyland Resort restaurant. Don't skip the Bao Buns and the Moroccan Roasted Chicken Meatballs if you find a reservation for an alfresco meal there. If you find a table to have dinner inside (the building is gorgeous), I recommend the Cheese Stuffed "Arepa," the California Ahi Poké, and the heavenly Winter Endive & Apple Salad

    While you don't have to have a ticket to make the reservations, you will need tickets and theme park reservations to get into the parks to feast on those wonders. So I advise you to find the best ticket option for you, purchase it, and then schedule your theme park reservations so that you can have a neatly planned itinerary. 

    If you have questions while going through these steps, please don't hesitate to come back to us. We're here to help you create the most wonderful (and most delicious!) trip ever, so let us know how to assist you again. 

    May the magic be with you until we meet again, Rick!
