The chefs of Napa Rose developed the Southern Californian menu. A downstairs lounge serves appetizers and quick meals, while the larger upstairs restaurant takes reservations. A three-course fixed-price World of Color menu is also offered (Lunch $42.13 adults, $19.44 kids; Dinner $63.73 adults, $21.60 kids) which includes access to the prime center-stage viewing section. Terrace seating is available.
Though service is frequently inattentive, is is among the finest restaurant found inside the gates of any American theme park (including the vaunted Club 33) and one of the best dining experiences at Disneyland Resort outside of its sibling at the Grand Californian, at a slightly less astronomical price point. If you don't want an entire meal, stop in the downstairs lounge for a classic craft cocktail and short rib tacos or charcuterie tray; it's just a shame they won't serve duck wings downstairs. Or for an educational look at the historic photographs that festoon the wall, take the free tour offered daily 10:30 a.m.
Setting and Atmosphere
Intimate booths, wood paneling, and candle sconces evoke the setting of the opening night in 1937 of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Crispy firecracker duck wings with chili sauce, grilled Angus steak, Skuna Bay salmon, and fried biscuits with Cheddar, bacon, and jalapeno.
For lunch try the 'ultimate' beef sandwich or Chicken and Spinach Ravioli; for dinner, try the fish ceviche with avocado or heirloom tomato salad. Salmon is served mid-rare with 'forbidden' black rice. For dessert, order the Creamy Citrus Cheese Cake. The kids menu offers fresh fish with veggies, mini crispy tacos, or pasta.
