Was way better then what we expected, a pleasant surprise ! The service was great, the food was spot on, the desserts were very good and the princesses made our little ones day. Will certainly recommend it to everyone.

We decided to "spring" for a dinner at Ariel's Grotto, because with that, came a very good viewing spot for the World of Color nightly show. Super good food and waitstaff. Reservations needed. Even though it's a little pricey, you don't have to dress up...More

The food is overpriced crap! The steak was like chewing gum! A scoop of plain white rice and 3 sprigs of asparagus, does not make a $40 meal! SO not worth it!

Meal was average and pricey for what you got. We went here because you got priority viewing for World of Colour. It was worth it for that but otherwise, the meal was overpriced and not that great.

We came for breakfast with our little one, and while accommodation was made for a gluten free allergy, the gluten free waffles were an hour old, and cold. The table cleaning staff were not friendly. Price was fairly high, over $40 per person, food was...More

This was so much fun for my Grand daughter...Expensive for what food was given, but then the food was NOT the experience...Seeing her eyes lit up over so many Princesses and Ariel, her favorite coming to the table was all this Nana needed to make...More

I booked Ariel's Grotto for my birthday dinner, because Blue Bayou was book months in advance. As I looked at the Disneyland.com web page, the price range was from $35 - 59 for adults. Giving you the idea that you can pick your meal from...More

A big expensive disappointment! The photographers and hostess people all seemed to be totally over their jobs months, maybe years ago, the princesses have zero character skills with the exception of Tiana who blew the Tiana from the river boat outta the water, she was...More

It's about $45 but so worth it. A lot of things are "once in a lifetime" and then a few years pass, and you come back for ... "one more time". This was a once in a lifetime, but I wouldn't have missed it for anything!
