Disneyland Attraction and Dining Reviews

Have opinions on Disneyland attractions and dining locations?
I bet you do

Please help us populate this new Disneyland section of the DIS by reviewing the locations you like and dislike. We have tons of great reviews for Walt Disney World, but now we need to get Disneyland up to speed.

Disneyland Attractions:

Disneyland Resorts:

Disneyland Dining:

Thanks for your help!

I am in the process of posting some reviews, Corey! I just did some for Disneyland - Carnation Cafe, Blue Ribbon Bakery, Begal BBQ and River Belle Terrace, and am in the process of doing one for Wine Country Trattoria in DCA. Then I will move on to Taste Pilots Grill in DCA and finally....the character meals (specifically Goofy's Kitchen and Storytellers Cafe). I don't have a lot of experience with Blue Bayou (not as much as other peple on the DIS), but I may do a review of my last visit there just to get something on there.

Everyone else should do some reviews too! They don't have to be long OR short. And we pretty much 'review' restaurants all the time on the DIS anyway in our various threads. Might as well put them in one central location for other people to see too!

Just left a review for Celebration Roundup at Big Thunder Ranch, however it is no longer a character meal (and hasn't been for quite some time) and should be moved to the plate service menu.

On our last trip, we loved everywhere we ate, except for Ariel's grotto. The experience itself was great, the food was horrendous. My friend and her son, and my daughter and I ate so little of it that they very nicely discounted our meal. Hopefully though, that was just a bad day for them. I have heard good things from a few other posters.

Breakfast with Minnie and Goofy's Kitchen were both wonderful, and we loved the bakery on main street.

Disneyland Dining

Big Thunder Ranch BBQ - Hands down best area for dining. I love how the food is endless, you can eat til you throw up lol.

Blue Bayou - Hella over priced but the food is delicious. They make the best Filet Mignon Medium Rare of any place I tasted. The service is even better.

Gumbo Bar - That gumbo is addicting but yet sooo good.

Village Haus - The food is good but the outside area needs more shade. Kinda loud because it is in stroller central aka Fantasyland. The food is not filling at all, so dont go there with a huge appetite because you will not be satisfied.

DCA Dining

Taste Pilots - They have really good burgers but the chili is not so good. Its a cool place and in a nice spot but very overrated from who it was referred from.

Pizza Mow Mow - Just ate there a couple days ago and the pizza slices are freaking huge, so filling. The pizza salad with vinaigrette was sssoooo good and once again filling. The down side is that it is a bit on the pricey side.

Trattoria - Really great service and very calm area. The food is good but they need to improve on their steaks, somewhat chewy. The alcohol mix drinks are priced very well for what you receive. Its not the best in the park but not the worst.

NEXT CHOICE IS HUNGRY BEAR AND COCINA CUCAMONGA

I'd be happy to rate the attractions, even write a short sentence about each attraction, but it looks like you have to fill in +, -, and other comments for it to even accept the post. I think you would get a better response if there weren't so many separate comment sections that had to be filled out. Just a suggestion.

There are MANY places in the Park that you can get free refills.

Btw, did you know it is a violation of DISBoards rules to promote another fan site or advertise your own business? It's in the DISBooards posting guidelines.

" 7. ADVERTISING: The advertisers/sponsors who you see on the DIS are carefully chosen. While we welcome discussion of them as well as other businesses that you have information or questions about, if it's determined that you are using the DIS to promote a commercial venture, you will lose your posting privileges. This includes choosing a username/signature that refers to your business. In addition, links to the company's website will be blocked. Also note that we do not want the boards to be used for solicitations or for requesting referrals. Requests for advertising can be directed to Corey@wdwinfo.com for consideration."


So that would be:
1. using DIS to promote your venture
2 user name that refers to your business
3. links to your company website


got ur back dreams!
