    Places to eat?

    Where is a good place to eat a nice dinner for a couple of college students with a medium budget in Disneyland this weekend?

    Cafe Orleans is one of my favorites. I highly recommend the Pommes Frites there, but never been disappointed. As for budget you can probably get do $20-30 a person there easily

    I liked the food at the new Flo's Cafe. They had a choice of roastbeef, pork, or turkey. It's good old-style home cooking. Enough to fill you up.

    I agree with Cafe Orleans. I eat there every time I visit.

    The corn dogs are delicious and filling. The pasta place back by Goofy's Sky School is really yummy and a decent sized serving, too!

    This is my favorite too; a Monte Cristo sandwich and pomme frites with a mint julep. Not exactly cheap, but definitely worth the tastiness. Considering how expensive most food is in the park, a nice lunch there is worth the extra cash.

    The best value in the resort, in my opinion, is Plaza Gardens. The fried chicken is among the best anywhere, and lots of it. The cobb salad is also highly recommended.

    Agree with this too--you get a huge plate of food. Normally I eat the fried chicken, but I tried the pot roast last time (I'm pregnant and can't stand poultry right now). It was amazing! I seriously ate the entire plate and licked it clean. I also always ask for them to pour gravy on my green beans to make them extra tasty. My sister and I usually split a plate because its enough for two (or for one if you are really hungry or if you are pregnant!)

    New Orleans Cafe is definitely one of my favorite places to eat, and I HIGHLY recommend the hot chocolate.

    I know Blue Bayou has a reputation for being expensive but unless you're ordering the steak (which is awesome!), it prices are in the $20-$30 range. Likewise, I was pretty impressed with Wine Country at DCA.

    I've always felt that at an amusement park (even Disneyland) you really shouldn't put your expectations too high regarding food. You will always pay more than what it's worth. Just the nature of it.
    However, that said, I look at ambiance as much - or even more than food. Taking that into account, some of my favorites are:
    Hungry Bear
    Village Hause
    Plaza Inn
    Flo's
    French Market Cafe

    and a couple of my favorites are
    Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta and
    Paradise Garden Grill

    Both often feature live music performed and the overall environment is very calm and relaxing.

    food is better at disney california adventure. You can go into the grand californian and all of a sudden you are paying normal prices and the food is great.

    We like the sourdough bread bowl place in DCA, it is the same place that is at the pier in san francisco and I like their clam chowder or their tomato soup. About $9-$10 I think.

    For not much more than you will pay in the parks, you can have a real meal with table service at "Storytellers Cafe" at the Grand Californian, it's definitely a better VALUE for your tourist dollars.

    That said, I'd like to check out the new offerings at the Disneyland Hotel.
