Blue Bayou Restaurant
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).

PassPorter's Ratings for Blue Bayou Restaurant
Author Jennifer Marx's Rating:
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.
