Blue Bayou Restaurant

Description from PassPorter's Disneyland Resort and Southern California Guidebook:

It’s always evening on the bayou at this ultimate Disney dining experience located inside Pirates of the Caribbean—diners are actually a part of the attraction! Dine on lavish selections such as the famous Monte Cristo sandwich ($27, lunch only), slow-roasted beef strip loin ($41, lunch and dinner), and Surf and Turf ($48, dinner only). Kids meals ($8.99-$12.99) and vegetarian menu are available. You can even get a Mint Julep (non-alcoholic, of course). In all honesty, you’re mostly paying for the delightful atmosphere here—the food is good, but not amazing. Advance reservations are a must and can be made up to 60 days in advance. A perfect spot for a quiet, romantic meal. Ask for a table by the water to get the most out of this enchanting restaurant. Consider booking a Fantasmic! Dining Package here, which includes both dinner and reserved seating for Fantasmic! ($61/adult, $23/child).

What PassPorter Readers Think of Blue Bayou Restaurant (8 comments):

This place is totally over rated. I've had a better Monte Cristo sandwich just outside of the restaurant and it was cheaper. The atmosphere and the service was great but the food wasn't so I don't ever see myself paying that much for a meal there again.

The food is OK, the atmosphere saves the location.

Pricey but fun for a special occasion. Try to sit by the water if possible.

You can't beat the atmosphere! Dining there once every couple of years is enough.

Glad we did it. But no need to go back for us.

Great atmosphere and food. Ask for a table overlooking Pirates of the Caribbean.
