Disneyland Park in New Orleans Square


Monte Cristo Sandwich, Bourbon Street Chicken, Steak and Potatoes, Mickey-shaped Beignets.

Entrée Range

Lunch: Adult $10 ◆ Dinner: Adult $10


The pommes frites are worth the price of admission. If you don’t eat anything else in the park your entire visit, try these. We like to hit Café Orléans for a midafternoon break, kick our feet up for a soda or sweet tea, and pick through a plate of the fries while we people-watch. The small menu makes ordering easy, provided you bring a big appetite and aren’t afraid of a little cholesterol and trans fat. The Monte Cristo sandwiches are as good as Blue Bayou’s and a few bucks cheaper. Kids will love the three-cheese version: Swiss, mozzarella, and double-cream Brie between thick slices of deep-fried, egg-battered bread. A Dixieland jazz band periodically provides lively entertainment.

Setting and Atmosphere

Across the alley from Blue Bayou, Café Orléans overlooks the Rivers of America. There’s a small patio and limited inside seating, but the table-side service offers a nice break from the serveyourself and buffet options in the same price range. After a day of traipsing around the park, it’s nice to kick back amid the wrought iron and scrolled-wood accents.

House Specialties

The chef’s pommes frites have to be among the best sides in the park: traditional thick-cut fries tossed with Parmesan cheese, garlic, and parsley and served with a mildly spicy Cajun rémoulade sauce. If they aren’t served piping hot, send them back. Mickey-shaped beignets are also a treat for dessert.

Other Recommendations

An artery-clogging Monte Cristo sandwich in two versions, traditional and three-cheese; and a nice selection of salads.
