Set waterside inside Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean, the Blue Bayou restaurant offers Cajun and Creole-influenced lunch and dinner entrees.

The dinner menu at the Blue Bayou includes steaks and seafood, while the lunch menu features Disney's Monte Cristo sandwich. You'll dine "outside" an antebellum Louisiana mansion, along the shore of the Blue Bayou, watching the Pirates of the Caribbean boats float by in the eternal twilight.

You'll need to make reservations in advance to eat at the Blue Bayou - call 714-781-DINE before your trip, and very nicely request a waterside table.

If you are craving a Monte Cristo sandwich and looking for a less expensive alternative (with less ambiance), try the Cafe Orleans across the way in Disneyland's New Orleans Square, which also serves the sandwich, and at a lower price.


Monte cristo is sinfully good and the restaurant inside a ride concept is brilliant, even now nearly 50 years later.
The food is wonderful, but it's priced itself out of my range.
Amazing atmosphere, and great gumbo but the entrees are rather expensive for their quality.
Maybe we hit it at the wrong time, but it felt dusty and faded. We had heard the food portions were enormous and when we asked our server if we could split one meal, he gave us a short and rude answer "yes lots of people do it". There was plenty of food for two - we had the chicken and asparagus with mashed potatoes. As for the quality of the food? Average. It is still theme park food no matter where it's presented.
Just after our visit it was closed for refurb. It certainly needed it. We will dine there again. I want to experience it again in case our visit was simply poor timing.
