Best Time to to Eat
in Downtown Disney

by Stephanie
(Montana)


I suggest eating dinner at Downtown Disney at around 4pm.

It is an early dinner, but you avoid a lot of crowds this way. The most I have had to wait at this time is about 20-30 minutes, compared to the dinnertime wait times of 45 minutes to 1 hour. My family does this with Tortilla Jo's, Rainforest Cafe, ESPN Zone, and Naples. It works every time!

After dinner, we go back to the hotel, put warmer clothes on, and go back out for the night!

Refills on drinks!

Refills on drinks


Hi there...thought I'd pass these on...

If you get a drink at Rancho Del Zocalo, it's free refills, so get your drink from there early and save the multiple drink purchases throughout the day.

If you get a cup of coffee at the place on Main Street (right hand side of the street, I have looked for the name of this store and can't find it to save me!)...it is also free refills all day if you like!

Lastly, after you have had all those caffeinated drinks you might want to use the restroom, you might even want a little privacy...if so, then go to the "secret bathroom" where there is only a single bathroom-no stalls, you have it to yourself....where is it you ask? You have all probably walked right past it a million times... if you are in the Plaza Gardens (where they swing dance) you'll see tables in the back of the area. Over in the corner toward the Frontierland tunnel entrance you'll see tables and what appears to be a cast member gate/entrance, but really that is only one of the things back there-- the other thing is the "Secret Bathroom". It is out of sight almost completely and so most people have no idea it is there... enjoy!

At Disneyland and DCA, kid's meals are for adults, too.

by Lisa M.

If you are a light-eater or a senior citizen or just on a tight budget, this tip is for you.

Even though the menus all say for kids 12 and under, etc., this is not enforced. You don't even need to be sneaky about it. Order a kids meal for yourself.

Disney doesn't want you to go hungry!

Blue Bayou Lunch Not on the Menu- Just Ask

The last time I ate at the Blue Bayou was during lunch. My family was looking over the menu. I knew it would be expensive.... but really.


Anyways I told the waiter that my child really liked spaghetti (not on the menu). He said they have spaghetti in children and adult portions. He said it's only available for lunch. The price was significantly lower than the other items on the menu and you get garlic bread with your meal as well. This was about 5 years ago so I'm not sure if they still have it. But it was very filling! Mmmmmm.

Free Tortilla!

by Alex
(Sherman Oaks, CA)

In California Adventures there is a small factory called "The Mission Tortilla Factory" where you can watch how a tortilla is made.

After the short tour, they give you a free sample of a fresh tortilla that was just made before your eyes. It's a fun and interesting way to not only get away from crowds and learn something new - but you get a free tortilla as well!
