damo, i was really really really sad when La Bamba closed down.
i would eat there a couple of times each trip when it was opened during the day.

they had the best food.
i can remember the chicken, ribs...........


hopefully the menu won't be a healthy one if it is reopened.



i prefer the grease and sauce when on vacation.
i can eat healthy once i am back home.

Looks like there is some Mexican as well as ribs, skirt steak and roasted chicken with tortilla chips, tortilla soup, black beans & rice and chili as the possible sides (you get two).

So are both the Monsters Cafe and International Food Festival closed right now?

We're going in mid to late January and I was thinking about where to eat at US (IoA with Thunder Falls and Mythos is easier!). Any counter service suggestions for US?

Monster's Cafe is not closed yet but will most likely close after the holiday. Cafe La Bomba has opened to take its place.

I suggest Beverly Hills Boulangerie for fresh sandwiches and and salads and desserts. Louie's Pizza is also good. La Bamba has Mexican foods which I've heard are very good.

I guess there is rumor on other sites that La Bamba is supposedly closing up again after the New Year...so we'll see.

Going again in April !! Decided NOT to do the meal deal and when I explained why to DD she totally agreed . I am thinking of Finnegans for a lunch or supper as I really enjoyed it in September !! Maybe Pastamore Market for another meal and of course there is BK !!!Another possibility is 3 Broomsticks and their Grand Feast which would easily feed 5 , but does anyone know IF they will give you an extra plate ??

Do you have to make reservations way in advance if you want to do the character breakfast at Universal? I think the kids would really like this!

it's a pre pay character breakfast.

you order it online or call and order over the phone.

then you call to set up the date and time.


yea, it is a nice character breakfast but a pre plated meal off the menu.
lots of time with the characters, you can take as many pictures that your fingers can snap!


i always loved the spidey, Dr Seus character breakfast at Confisco grille......
sorry to see that leave.

Finally had a chance to play in the park and I was able to get photos of some menus. I glanced at Finnegan's outside and it didn't seem like they had changed it at all. I didn't make it back over to Confisco's, so I only have photos of the Mythos and Lombards menus.










Sorry about Lombards. It was taken outside and it was somewhat sunny so I was just snapping the pictures with my phone and hoping they turned out decent.

Mythos says "Festival of Mushrooms" at the top of it, so my friends and I were almost wondering if it was more of a temporary change...but we'll see.

that is so nice of you to do that April !


next time you are in the park, can you see what the new menu is for La Bamba? (not the character breakfast)

i'm so curious to find out before my next trip.
