    I now want to know about Disneyland dining. Do you recommend eating in the parks or downtown disney instead. And how much in advance do you make dining reservations. Can you give me some Disneyland dining suggestions too

    Hello again Marilyn,
    There are so many dining options throughout the Disneyland Resort. Downtown Disney is a great option for your family if you're looking for an array of dining options with themed restaurants with broader menus. These restaurants are independently owned and offer a simple to succulent palate for every budget. 
    I'm partial to dining in the parks because of the convenience factor and I love the ambiance of the surroundings. In the Blue Bayou Restaurant, you dine on a tasty menu of cajun and creole specialties while the setting of twinkling fireflies and chirping frogs get you in the mood for a relaxing meal. You will see boats full of passengers float by on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. I love it! We also must dine at Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue for the best sweet potato fries. If you're wanting a healthy option, head over to Harbour Galley for a delicious shrimp salad. By calling 714-781-DINE you can make your reservations 60 days out. 
    I hope this helps. Please write me back if you have any more questions Marilyn.
