Guest Review: Beach Side Bonfire Buffet at PCH Grill in Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Resort

DFB is welcoming guest author Lori Hope with a review of the PCH Grill. Nestled in Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Hotel, this restaurant serves up breakfast and dinner. Today, we are checking out the bonfire buffet, which debuted this Summer!


Disney’s PCH Grill at Disneyland’s Paradise Pier has created a delicious Beach Side Bonfire nightly buffet. We usually head to Storytellers Cafe, but we were staying at Paradise Pier and we are always excited to try something new. Paradise Pier is a bit out of the way if you are in the parks, but it is just at the end of Downtown Disney so it isn’t too far.

We made an advance dining reservation, but it was not too crowded when we went. The staff greeted us right away and we had no issues adding another guest to our party.
