Disney's Grand Californian Hotel

Entree range

$20-$30

Summary

You may experience a little sticker shock at first, but there's real value here. it's not quite on par with Napa Rose across the way, but the same dedication to quality and originality is evident in everything from the menu to the service. Kids will find lots to like about the menu, along with enough distractions between the colorful menus, murals, and character visits to let the adults enjoy a wide range of menu options (from pastas to steaks to fresh fish) and a leisurely cocktail or glass of wine. You'll want to save some room for dessert, too who could pass up warm seasonal-fruit cobbler heaped with vanilla ice cream or a warm chocolate brownie?

Setting and Atmosphere

The Storytellers Cafe carries the grand Californian's arts and Crafts theme throughout with large, open beams; natural wood and wood carvings; milled stone; and stained glass. the walls are adorned with impressive murals depicting the state's rich literary history, from Mark twain's the Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County to Scott Dell's Island of the Blue Dolphins.

House Specialties

Children under age 10 will love the character breakfast. Chip & Dale, goofy, and other Disney celebrities visit the tables, sign autographs, and pose for photos between bites of omelets, waffles, and hotcakes. At dinner, braised chicken and lemon prawns.

Other Recommendations

Health-conscious diners will love the cafe's salads, such as the lobster Cobb. The chicken sandwich with caramelized onions is great.
