[QUOTE=DisneyOnMyMind;1071566]My DH and I haven’t been to Disneyland in 10 years, and are looking forward to going this fall. I have been reading about the restaurants in the hotels and parks and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for restaurants that shouldn’t be missed. We will only be at the parks for 4 nights in early October. Also how important are reservations?[/QUOTE]
It’s changed a bit since then, but reservations can be tricky. I always get reservations, though they can usually be made in the early morning if you plan to do a dinner meal. I’ve rarely found myself unable to get a reservation 12 hours ahead.
NAPA ROSE (Grand Californian) is a great restaurant, and you should go there for at least one meal, even if it’s appetizers and coffee.
JAZZ KITCHEN (Downtown Disney) is the new Blue Bayou. Fantastic menu, and good entertainment.
GOLDEN HORSESHOE REVIEW (Frontierland) try to get there before lunch one day so that you can get the stageside booth. Well worth the wait.
STORYTELLER’S CAFE (Grand Californian) is the “cheaper” version of the Napa Rose. Some of the best meals I’ve had were better tasting than ANYTHING inside the parks for a cheaper price. :pirate:
