Have you ever ridden a classic attraction and wondered what it would be like to sit inside the ride and enjoy a meal? Disneyland offers this opportunity inside Pirates of the Caribbean with a restaurant called Blue Bayou. You will feel as though you stepped foot into Louisiana of past years. You walk through the facade of a beautiful plantation home to the “outdoor” seating area overlooking a canal. Here, you will hear the sounds of bullfrogs, see fireflies, and enjoy watching guests pass by on their way into a pirate lair. If you listen closely, you will hear the screams of these same guests as they make their way down two drops on Pirates of the Caribbean.
The menu is on the small side, but there should be something for everyone: steak, chicken, fish, pasta, and several side dishes that are quite tasty. I made my first trip to Disneyland in 2017. Even though we only had two days to visit, we ate at Blue Bayou both days knowing we would love it. It did not disappoint! You will want to make reservations early, and if you are able to grab one of the first seatings of the day, you are almost guaranteed a water view. I highly recommend this, or offering to wait for a water view table if there are none available when you check in.
