    White Water Snacks

    Do you have to be guests at the Grand Californian to eat at White Water Snacks?
    It has good reviews and seemingly fair prices, so I thought we might check it out.
    But we are not staying on property.

    Re: White Water Snacks

    My guess is no, you don't have to be a guest. I have not eaten there, but I am 99.9% sure(unless something has changed) that the most of the eateries in the resort are open to the public. The exceptions are:
    1. Club 33 and 1901 do not allow the public and require membership
    2. Concierge lounges in the Disney hotels, are only for people staying in a concierge of that specific hotel.
    3. Different Bars, located in the resort, where you must be 21 and older to eat at.

    You do not have to be a guest to eat there. It's a nice place to get a meal -reasonable prices, decent food, usually not very crowded.

    Definitely not! Never stayed at any of Disney's hotels, but I have been to White Water Snacks multiple times. As KellyMcG86 said, the food is pretty decent and not usually crowded. My favorite thing to get is the chicken nachos!

    Might go there, as it seems to be getting thumbs up
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    No, you don`t have to be a guest staying at the resort to eat there , but the key word here is snacks. I would put it on par with 7-11

    Yeah snacks is the key word. I have never felt all that satisfied when I have eaten there. They have a hamburger, a chili dog, and nachos, not much else to choose from.

    The 7-11s in your area must be a little bit better than ours. The name says "Snacks," but you're still in the Grand Californian, so it's an attractive, upscale woodsy atmosphere for a "snack bar." We like to hang out in the Grand Californian's lobby after we eat.

    The kids meals at Whitewater Snacks have the same bad, microscopic burgers as the rest of the resort,
    but we also get the fruit plate, and I've had delicious grown-up burgers and (
    healthier) chicken sandwiches here. Nice staff too! They bring your order to your table after you order at the register.
    Check out the specials on their signs when you go in.

    Get there via the Grand Californian exit in the west side of DCA to conveniently sneak away from the thicker crowds in the Disneyland Resort.

    Please report back to us.

    This.^

    I went there a couple of years ago after hearing some decent reviews on here. To say I was underwhelmed would be a major understatement.

    There's better offerings in the area (Earl of Sandwich).

    I'm also glad the Earl has arrived, though I won't get their "Original 1762" again.

    Explain, please. I haven't had it and I'd like an honest opinion of why I shouldn't. Thanks in advance.

    I was excited to try this sandwich, but I found it inferior to the others there.
    Maybe the master chef was having a bad day, or maybe my recent preferences for healthier fare unfairly underrated the 1762. I liked the other sandwiches I've had there (good value for the D.land resort), and we
    will
    return.
