Disneyland in Frontierland


Pork Spareribs, Pulled Pork Sandwich, Chopped Salad, BBQ Tofu.

Entree Range

Dinner: Adult $45, Child $25 ◆ Lunch and Dinner: Adult $19-27, Child $9-12


This 1955 Disneyland original, now a tableservice venue, offers 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. On nights when Fantasmic! is shown, River Belle Terrace offers a dining package for $45 per adult ($25 for kids 3–9), plus tax, that includes a starter, entrée, and dessert, as well as a FastPass to Fantasmic!’s center viewing section.

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.

House Specialties

Pork spareribs, pulled-pork sandwich, BBQ tofu, and beef brisket sandwich. Desserts change seasonally.

Other Recommendations

Sustainable fish of the day or barbecue tofu.
