    Hi planDisney! I will be meeting my mother at Disneyland Resort next week for an adult only visit. She loves to drink wine and have a charcuterie board of snacks. What are the best dining options in the parks or at Downtown Disney? Thank you!

    Hello there, Danielle! We are so happy to see you here again at planDisney.

    I am excited to hear that you and your mother will be at visiting the Disneyland Resort very soon! The summertime is one of my favorite times of year to visit because you are almost always guaranteed sunny weather. And while the temps may be warm, you can always retreat to a fabulous restaurant.

    While we are on the topic of dining, I highly recommend visiting the Hearthstone Lounge at Disney's Grand California Hotel & Spa. It is a cozy lounge located in the lobby of the hotel. They offer an impressive selection of wines, as well as an Artisanal Cheese & Charcuterie plate. And if you're looking for an option that stays open late, the lounge closes at midnight.

    Another recommendation also located at Disney's Grand California Hotel & Spa is the GCH Craftsman Bar. This is an outdoor restaurant that offers wonderful views of the pool. I also love the live entertainment. There are plenty of wines and specialty cocktails. And while they do not have a charcuterie board, they do have a Charcuterie Pizza on the menu. Keep in mind that the pizzas are large and you'll likely be taking leftovers with you.

    If you are looking for last-minute Table Service recommendations within the Theme Parks, look no further than River Belle Terrace at Disneyland Park. This hidden gem serves up delicious comfort foods. Please note that alcohol is not yet available here.

    And in Disney California Adventure Park, I recommend Wine Country Trattoria. This is an Italian restaurant that offers pasta, wine flights, and so much more! You can make your dining reservations on the Disneyland Mobile App.

    Danielle, I hope this information is helpful to you. I am wishing you the happiest visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
