Review: My Favorite Food in Disneyland

OK, for serious. I’m just going to say it. This is the BEST food in Disneyland. Believe me, Napa Rose is incredible, Steakhouse 55 slays, and Club 33 is amazing. I’ve been to all three many times. But if I only have one meal to eat in Disneyland, it’s going to be this one.

We all know that Disney restaurants can be maddeningly inconsistent, but this one? Always good. And these particular menu items are home-runs every single time. It’s a good day for a visit to Cafe Orleans in Disneyland, don’t you think?

Located in New Orleans Square, this casual Table Service restaurant serves consistently killer NOLA French Quarter-inspired fare with a little bonus panache.

New Orleans Square, for those who haven’t been, is so fun. It’s always Mardi Gras here, people! Big masks, oversized beads, and beautiful architectural details make this place a magnet for visitors to the Happiest Place on Earth.

And Cafe Orleans is right in the heart of things.

Atmosphere

Cafe Orleans is a pretty classy joint. Think stained glass and elegant decor (by theme park standards). It all starts outside. [Read more…]

Monte Cristo Sandwich at Cafe Orleans

Yep — there is so much good stuff in Disneyland that we had to split this one into two episodes, or we’d all run the risk of overstimulation! :-D

And it’s also the home of some secret menu items: Loaded Tots! You Guys. I promise. You need these in your life. But THEN, we head to Cafe Orleans, where I share my favorite picks from that classic menu! [Read more…]
