    I was looking to make a reservation for Carthay Lounge, but all I see is AlFresco Dining. Can you still sit inside the lounge and would that still fall under a reservation for AlFresco? Or is AlFresco solely for outside dining?

    Hi Kelly! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you stopped by and sent your question to us.

    How exciting that you're going to be vacationing at The Happiest Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year! Your timing is great because Disney California Adventure Park will be all decked out for the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort! I know that name, Carthay Circle Lounge - Alfresco Dining, might allude to only outdoor dining, however, there is also seating inside at this dining location. If you have a preference, you can request it with a Cast Member upon check-in for your advanced dining location. While the ambiance varies based on where you sit, the great news is that the menu will be the same whether you are seated inside or outside. Because California weather is typically great in December, you might consider dining alfresco! You might even be able to see the giant Christmas tree on Buena Vista Street from your table!

    If you're like me and love to plan what to eat during your vacation, be sure to check out Disney Festival of Holidays while you are at Disney California Adventure Park! The Festive Foods Marketplace offers a great variety of delicious sips and bites. I highly recommend purchasing a Sip and Savor Pass to make it more fun and easy to eat and drink your way around the booths! For more great info about food at the Disneyland Resort, be sure to follow Disney Eats on Instagram. You will want to make your list and check it twice for all of the great holiday food offerings! 

    If you have more planning questions, please visit us again at planDisney. We would love to help you have the merriest vacation ever! 

    Bon Appétit!
