Despite all the years that we have gone to DL...we have never eaten at the Carnation Cafe on Main Street. I always thought that it was too small and doesn't have enough space to sit and eat.

I'm thinking of trying it out with the kids and DW. Anyone have any recommendations on what to eat there for lunch or dinner?

Am I able to make Disney dinner reservations there?

The last two times we have eaten breakfast and lunch there. We have also been lucky enough to be there on days when Oscar was working. He goes from table to table. My daughter always asks for his autograph. It is bigger now with more room to sit. Our plan is lunch on day 2! Have a great time!

Hungry Bear - Got the crispy chicken sandwich. It was very moist and flavorful

Jolly Holiday - Got the turkey sandwich. The turkey was yummy


Both sandwiches were fairly large and were easily split between two adults. You have to cut them in half yourself if you're sharing they won't do it for you.

Reviews from 2012 & 2013

Here are a few reviews I will start with the earliest first (MAY 2013) so that way people can still go and order the most current items. I would be happy to answer any questions so just let me know if you have a question

We ate almost ever day in the park however I didn't always get pics, the first pic was from the HUNGRY BEAR:



This thing was so very good, the Hungry Bear offers these seasonal pies and I first had ordered a Strawberry Pie and it was not good so I exchanged it for the Chocolate Pie and I was so glad that I did. The top was like a moose and the bottom was like a hard pudding. I would highly recommend this!

We also ate the Fried Green Tomato sandwich and it was everything that everyone has said it is. Wonderful, flavorful, fresh and crispy! Such great choice and I would highly recommend this as well. My husband has the cheeseburger and just said it was ok. My little one also had the mac and cheese and fyi the toddler meal is very small so just be prepared.

Then we went over to Adventureland and to the TIKI ROOM:



I had never ordered a Dole Whip Float and this was on my Disneyland bucket list. It was good but I didn't love it, I think it was just a pineapple overload. I would not order this again but I would however order the Dole ice cream soft serve as it was really refreshing and such a unique flavor.

Then near the HUB, we got this:



What can I say its an ice cream bar. Its good but not over the top good. I think we enjoyed the chocolate dip cone over at the Cozy Cone a bit better but that was not really outstanding either.

This was at the BOARDWALK PIZZA AND PASTA place:



This was the sun dried tomato pasta and all I can say is YUCK! I took this back and got this:



Much much better! The pasta sauce and the noodles where pretty standard but I really loved the meatballs. Such a spicy interesting flavor that was really a good satisfying portion I could only finish half of this.

Was also tried the BIG THUNDER RANCH BBQ:



This was one of my favorite meals and the first time we had tried this restaurant! The chicken was very good and juicy and the sausage had a great flavor, we didn't really like the ribs so we ordered seconds of the chicken and sausage only. The cornbread was very good! The coleslaw was a bit funny for me but it wasn't really bad. The beans where also very good but I would have preferred then not be vegetarian and had some meat added to them. The ambiance was also nice with the country singers interacting with all the tables. I think the price was $27.99 for dinner but I thought it was a fine price and we will be going back here next time we visit.

BLUE BAYOU and the famous chicken gumbo:



Yummy I loved the soup and its just so quintessential to Disneyland. We go to the BB every time we come to DL however we just come for the ambiance and not the food but this time I am glad to say since their new menu change the quality of the food is much better! Sorry I didn't get a picture of the Chicken dish but I order it every time and this time it was a thousand time better then the last 3 times I have ordered it. The chicken was so nice and tender and juicy and the most wonderful tangy but savory flavor. If you have been here and didn't like it I would give it another try!

This was also from the BLUE BAYOU but at Halloween time (OCT 2012):



It was a vanilla and chocolate mouse with a crumbly bottom and it was soooo good. It was served in a Donald Duck cup but the dessert just came out of a plastic cup inside and it just lifted out so the cup was not dirty and I could take it home clean. Would highly recommend this during Halloween time!

We also stopped into RALPH BRENNAN'S JAZZ KITCHEN (OCT 2012):



This was so very good and I think it was called the Chocolate Souffle and it was amazing. The dinner here I don't really recall being memorable but this was! It was so nice and crispy on the outside but so nice and pudding like on the inside and it also came with a side of white chocolate that you could drizzle over. Just an FYI it takes quite a while to make so if you want to order it make sure you do it before or when you order your entree. It also is a bit pricey but it might be good to try at least once.

This last one is not at Disneyland but worth and honorable mention especially if you drive down to DL from the North, PEA SOUP ANDERSON'S:



This pea soup is so very good and I would highly recommend this. It was so good and so creamy, yummy! They have two locations and we visited the one in Santa Nella.


Hope this helps others when planning out meals at Disneyland sorry most of them where desserts but you can see what I love most at DL, lol

I didn't know you can return things ... did you just decide to purchase the other or were they willing to exchange it for you for something else since you didn't like it? Thanks!

Yes, I'd like to hear more about this too. You took a few bites? Decided you didn't like it and walked back over to the counter and said......?

But thank you for all your pictures and comments!!

They did exchange it for me, it just tasted really bad and they had no problem giving me the other dish and it was sooo much better.

Thank you!

I'm sorry I don't know the answer to this, but you might be able to find it on the allears site. Have you ever seen it? You could google Disneyland restaurant menus and then allears will be one of the first things that pops up. Good luck!
