I agree the fried chicken is excellent at Plaza Inn. This restaurant is a good choice for dining inside Disneyland Park. I wish the Magic Kingdom had something comparable.

Plaza Inn was always a favorite for my family, and we'll still stop by when we want a bigger meal and don't mind paying more than we normally would for a meal at Disneyland. It never disappoints. The peppery green beans and the chunky mashed potatoes (and oh yes, that wonderfully salty, moist chicken) really are as good as you say.

Plaza Inn is a regular stop for my husband and I. We usually split the Chicken Dinner, asking for extra beans and a roll which we always get with a cheerful smile and usually the server saying something like "you must like our beans" which we do. We have recommended the Plaza Inn to our family and they have not been disappointed yet.

I am just loving all the delicious restaurant reviews lately. And I got a kick out of Robert doing a review of the other Plaza Inn, since I loved Amanda's review so much. This site is the best!!!

Literally making my mouth water! It's SO on the list!
I absolutely love that Disneyland serve counter service on real plates - always makes food taste better :-)

I like it! I have a feeling we could see a new feature soon here at TP!: Dueling 'Where to eat' reviews!!!! :) Don't let him win Amanda!

This actually could be a good idea -- in two different ways -- one obvious idea is to compare same name/style resturants found in more than one park (there are not many of these, but enough that it could be a west coast vs. east coast kind of thing) but also a dissenting opinion kind of idea - one good one bad....more opinions make our decisions easier...right? Right?

Thanks for the great review and the shout out to Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner! Still the greatest in Southern California....

Is that the dinner menu? It looks expensive for lunch. I don't remember paying that much for lunch. I recall paying around $11 for the chicken. For lunch, you get one less chicken piece and the servings are smaller.

Yes, the chicken is delicious. My favorite. The pasta and salads are terrific. The desserts aren't so bad either. The entrees are perfect for sharing. My family would buy one pasta dish, one chicken dish, and one salad and share all three among us. Then buy one dessert to share.

That's the current lunch menu. Don't know if it changes for dinner.

Lunch and dinner are the same menu. The chicken entree has always been three pieces (Breast, Thigh, Wing or Drumstick). You can request all white or all dark meat if you prefer. Pricing has gone up, but overall not much in the past couple of years. Pricing for most entrees has increased $1.00 in the past year.

Your meal looks better than mine did ;)

Just an FYI - a chicken is cut into 8 pieces - the menu and picture show 3 pieces, while a 1/2 chicken would have been 4.. But the flavors sound great.
From Robert Niles on October 26, 2013 at 3:03 PM
Our three pieces were a leg, a thigh, and a breast/wing combo, where the white meat wasn't divided into separate pieces, as it often is for fried chicken. So the three pieces were half the chicken.
