I've been to this Denny's several times, and I consider it no worse than any other Denny's. It is ALWAYS busy though, so you may wait a bit. As far as the kids eat free, their web page says "KIDS EAT FREE between 4 pm and 10 pm. Restrictions may apply. Ask your server for details. Days of this offer may vary. " You may wish to call to check the days. ((714) 776-3300)

Also note, their prices are $1-2 more per plate than most Denny's.

Perhaps sign up for both Millie's and Mimi's email subscription. Every month they send out a new promo. They're between DL and HoJo's. There's also a McD's.

I love Disney, i sometimes think that Mickey, Donald and Goofy run through my veins, but if there is something that Disney s needs to do is stop with the over pricing of food at the parks!. I would most diffidently hit the restaurants on Harbor ave. Even if Denny's is a little higher then the norm, go for it,it takes a little longer, gives you more time to talk about what you have done, or going to do that day at the park. I love talking with my DS when eating it can really give you a great opportunity to talk with your kids. Also this Is where DL has a step up from WDW. At WDW you almost have to eat on property!, your just to far away to eat off property. At DL, just have to go out the gate and your with in minutes of walking to a other choices. If your driveing?, wow you do not have to drive for a half an hour to find a choice. This trip we are planning outside restaurants to eat at.

The bottled water there is a great deal, other than that...meh.

I'd say hit the Jazz Kitchen for breakfast. The prices are a touch higher than Denny's, but the food is way better and your inside the Disney bubble. The JK has counter service for breakfast from 8 to 11.

We have been to DLR 5 times and here is our 2 cents...We have eaten at "Millie's" and "IHop" and when we ate there, their food was yucky [dirty restaurant], greasy food for scrambled eggs , and service was terrible. For Denny's, we ate there almost every day the last visit because we got the email coupon (sign up for the denny's across from DLR a day before your trip because it is only good for one week after you get it) and printed off a boat load and the portions were huge and the service was great.

Mimi's is usually a hit but our last visit was terrible service and food was a "meh". We tried them 3 times

This trip we are taking the city bus to "Von's" grocery [it is a safeway] and picking up snack food[carrots, cheese strings, yogurt tubes, gold fish crackers], bottled water, milk etc as we will have a small bar fridge in our room.

Good luck in good eats! there are good eats...sometimes on a family budget it's hard to find...Oh, one more things...on one of these DLR boards we found about "White Water Snacks" in the "Grand Californian"...suppose to be good prices plus you get the "disney themed" food and on a family budget

Have a great trip

AT Denny's, the Build your own Slam is about $7.50. I can eat IN Disneyland at the Carnation Cafe, getting food I like a little better, for $8.50 when I calculate my AP discount. I don't think the park prices are that far out of line, especially if you calculate in any discount you might get.

We really like Mimi's MUCH better than Ihop or Dennys! It is actually cheaper and you get better and more food! They also bring a muffin and banana/zucchini bread basket to the table which the family loves! Kids meals are great prices as are adults meals! We feel the food is excellent and we love it here!

^ This!! I love Mimi's!! They have bogo coupons on email all the time. Great food, their carrot rasin bread they bring to the table is to die for!! Love it!! We'll be eating there at least once on our upcoming trip. With reduced hours, we'll likely have a late dinner there on the nights the park closes at 8.

Dennys is not my fave, for some reason our kids love it there!! :

Ya that's true but i don't have AP discount, and what discounts are available? i have not heard of any in park discounts on meals. That would be great.
I am Not saying Denny's and other places like it is not the greatest but for there selection and for both the kids and the parents its still hard to compete with what Disney can offer. Now Don't get me wrong I love eating in side the park, and would rather do that, i will use cafe Orleans as a example, they have my fav sandwich in the world, the Monty cristo 17.99??? throw in my soup 8.99. Now I will cough up the money for my obsession LOL. No wrong choice everyone does whats best just would like if Disney could ease up a little, but there there to make a buck to just wishful thinking!

DVC members, as well as Disney Visa Card holders get 10% off meals, as do DAP holders. PAP (both premium and premier) get 15% off. AP holders also get discounts at most restaurants in DTD and the Gardenwalk.
