Reservations now available for Disneyland’s fan-favorite restaurant

Guests wishing to enjoy a delicious meal at one of Disneyland’s most popular and exclusive restaurants can now plan their dining experience in advance, as reservations for Blue Bayou Restaurant are now available.

The reopening of this fan-favorite spot has been a rollercoaster ride for guests, with an alleged soft opening that never happened and a surprise reopening nearly twenty days ahead of schedule. However, the restaurant exclusively accepted walk-in tours through the Disneyland mobile app or by asking for assistance at the restaurant’s podium, making it unclear if patrons would be able to enjoy this Louisiana-inspired experience. during their visit.

Guests can now book a reservation to experience this Louisiana-inspired culinary adventure through the Disneyland website. Availability may vary and due to the popularity of Blue Bayou we strongly advise guests to book in advance.

We recently reported that customers were disappointed to find that although the restaurant had reopened after a brief refurbishment, they were left with a rather “missing” view. However, the walls blocking the view of the water and the Pirates of the Caribbean loading area were recently demolished, allowing guests to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beloved attraction as its reopening date draws closer. .

The restaurant is also resuming its offer for the Fantasmic! Meal package, with prices of $89 per guest 10 and older and $35 per guest 3-9, starting at 11 a.m. for dinner packages and 4 p.m. for dinner packages.

A New Orleans Square Classic
Blue Bayou has been a must-visit destination for many Disneyland Resort visitors since it opened in 1967. Its mystical setting takes you deep into the South – aerial strings of colorful balloon lanterns cast an enchanting glow, dotting the darkness as crickets chirp, frogs caw and fireflies flicker in the dark.

Great Tastes from the Big Easy
Start your memorable meal with Southern-inspired entrees. Then choose from a selection of authentic entrees, including signature entrees such as jambalaya and plant-based Cajun cauliflower.

Favorite dishes include a surf & turf combo of split lobster tail and small filet mignon with all the fixin’s…and don’t forget the non-alcoholic mint juleps.

New additions to the restaurant’s menu include a New Orleans-inspired Hurricane cocktail, as well as a selection of wines and beers. And guests commemorating a special occasion can complete their experience with a celebratory finale with sparkling wine and a unique dessert to share. Kids can also participate in the Bayou spirit by creating their own meals, including delicious appetizers and sides that cater to all tastes.

Be sure to save room for dessert and don’t miss the best creme brulee in New Orleans!
