Pulled Pork or Beef Brisket sandwiches, Ribs, and Sausage Links
This 1955 Disneyland original has switched from an all-day counter-service restaurant to a table-service venue offering homey Southern dishes at lunch and dinner. For fans of the former Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue, River Belle’s ribs are the closest they’ll find to that all-you-could-eat favorite at the resort, albeit at a much higher cost. While the food quality is acceptable (the pan-seared arctic char we ate was even excellent), entrée pricing places it close behind Blue Bayou on the list of most expensive theme park restaurants, above the average cost at Carnation Café and even Café Orléans, both of which we prefer. The outdoor seating area is good to people-watch or just take in the view of Rivers of America from the patio, but the value proposition is too poor for such uncomplicated fare. The large, buttery cinnamon rolls dripping with buttercream frosting that Disney lore says Walt ate here every morning are now sold from a vendor cart outside the Haunted Mansion.
Setting and Atmosphere
Situated between New Orleans Square and Frontierland, The River Belle Terrace has an Old South–style exterior replete with wrought iron and wood siding. Large shuttered windows belie a small indoor-dining area; most of the seating is outdoors on a large patio covered with colorful umbrellas.
Pork Spareribs, and Pulled Pork Sandwich. Try the Maple, Apple and Bacon Bundt Cake for dessert.
