25 Loves: A Romantic Spot (at Disneyland)

I love a great romantic spot to spend time with my husband and finding the ideal romantic spot is essential for Valentine’s Day. We spent our Valentine’s Day at Disneyland three years ago and my husband made reservations at the Blue Bayou. You know the place, its that swanky restaurant that you float by on Pirates of the Caribbean. The restaurant is graced with amazing lighting and has a wonderful ambiance for a dinner for two. The food is reasonably priced when you compare it to the other dining choices in the park and here are the details on the menu from the Disney website:

Savor down-home, Louisiana-inspired cooking and full table service in moonlit ambience as Pirates of the Caribbean passenger boats drift past. This popular restaurant serves a range of delectable dishes for lunch and dinner (children's menu available):
Fish and beef entrees — including mahi mahi, roast New York strip and an exquisite dinner special featuring surf and turf
Cajun classics like Tesora Island chicken, jambalaya and a Monte Cristo sandwich
Cajun-inspired wedge salad and gumbo (with entrees)
Specialty desserts like crème brulee (includes pirate keepsake)

For some reason I thought the restaurant was exclusive or impossible to get into, but it turns out all you have to do is call the reservations line (714) 781-DINE) ahead of time. Make sure to get reservation because it is almost impossible to get a seat if you try the day of and don’t forget to try the Crème Brulee.

A fun place to eat - - been there a few times! If you are vegetarian, be sure to check their current menu 'cos usually there is a limited choice, if any.

Also, if you want to be seated by the water(yes, you do!)-- be sure to request "on the water" when you make reservations. =)

Keep in mind: during the off- season at Disneyland, it's fairly easy to get into Blue Bayou w/o reservations; however, like suggested, on Valentine's Day and peak-season, call beforehand or go immediately to Blue Bayou at Park opening to make reservations in person.

No matter which way you make reservations, though, it's not uncommon to wait an additional 10-15 minutes until your table is available. Therefore, you may want to schedule your meal a short while BEFORE you know everyone will be starving. ;-)
