    My husband wants to do dinner at downtown disney for the two of us and our 4 year old. What would be something yummy and nice for us, but also entertain her and food she will eat?

    Hi, Emma!

    It’s great to hear from you again. I hope you’re having lots of fun planning your magical vacation! 

    The Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort is conveniently located within easy walking distance from all three Disneyland Resort Hotels and the two theme parks. There are over 15 restaurants and eateries to choose from—including the popular Rainforest Café (elaborately decorated and a favorite for families with kids), Tortilla Jo’s, and ESPN Zone—over 20 shops, a movie theater, and several kiosks offering food, merchandise and custom art. There is often live entertainment offered by local musicians, which adds to the area’s dynamic, upbeat ambiance. 

    My personal favorite is Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen because of the tasty, Cajun and creole-inspired dishes and decadent desserts. The kid’s menu offers hearty three-course meals with foods children love, like chicken tenders, pasta, mac & cheese, cheeseburgers and pepperoni pizza with their choice of side dish. Every kid’s meal is served with Oreo cookies for dessert, to the delight of my son. The atmosphere is colorful and energetic, with live music offered many nights to keep your daughter engaged. 

    Bon appetit, Emma. Please feel free to ask me any other questions you may have as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
