Casual & Table Service Restaurant Dining
There are plenty of casual dining options available for families headed to Disneyland Paris. While they cannot all be featured here, using the Disneyland Paris app for the iPhone can be a great way to narrow down your options when you’re looking for a place to eat.
Check out a few highlights from the trip:
In lieu of the usual Plaza Inn Restaurant known for fried chicken, Disneyland Paris goers can enjoy Plaza Gardens Restaurant.
You can grab an affordable burger at Au Chalet du Marionnette, which looks very similar to Disneyland’s Village Haus:
Tap into your inner princess and enjoy French country fare at Auberge de Cendrillon complete with Cinderella’s pumpkin coach!
During my time at Disneyland Paris, there were two restaurants I wanted to try aside from the quick service options. The first was Walt’s – touted as an American restaurant that provided an homage to Walt’s life and to Disneyland in its originality. The second was The Blue Lagoon, as I am fond of Disneyland’s Blue Bayou and wanted to experience its counterpart. These are both labeled as fine dining establishments and are expensive – so be sure to check out the menu offerings before deciding on these restaurants!
Walt’s is a beautiful restaurant and really evokes the 1960’s. The dining rooms were divided and themed into the original lands featured in Disneyland and even included attraction memorabilia and artwork from those lands.
This restaurant is only open for lunch, so reservations are highly recommended. We made our reservation at Guest Services a day in advance so it was easy to arrive and be seated. There were clever touches throughout Walt’s, with my favorite being the “Beurre D’Isigny.” You’ll notice on the photo below that “the original name of the butter is protected” (Appellation D’Origine Protegee), but our waitress pointed out that D’Isigny is actually pronounced to sound like “Disney” – and thus be Disney’s own butter! I opted for a vegetarian risotto dish while my fiance got the chicken and potatoes. We wandered through several of the other rooms and got a feel for the memorabilia and artwork that makes Walt’s feel special.
