First Time at Cafe Orleans

I've been visiting Disneyland regularly for nearly three years now since moving down to Southern California, but there are still plenty of things on my Disney bucket list that I haven't accomplished. Many of these tasks include eating at various restaurants around the resort. In early January, I was actually able to check off Blue Bayou! (It was too dark to take photos...but I definitely had an emotional experience with the steak. It was SO good.) Most recently, I made reservations with my best friend at Cafe Orleans to once and for all try the ever famous Monte Cristo Sandwich. All I have to say is I was NOT disappointed!

My friend and I ordered and shared the Monte Cristo Sandwich and a bowl of Pommes Frites (garlic and parmesan fries). We also both had pomegranate lemonade, which never fails to be delicious and satisfying during a long day in the parks.

I first dove into the fries - I can't resist anything covered in garlic. Even though I love garlic, I was a little pleasantly surprised because the last garlic fries I had at Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney weren't as good as I had hoped. I don't know how much different they are compared to the ones at Cafe Orleans, but I definitely enjoyed the ones at Cafe more!

I honestly had no idea what I was getting into when I ordered the Monte Cristo. I only knew that the bread was a donut and that hardly any of my friends could finish one on their own. As soon as I took the first bite I understood what the craze was was amazing! The ham and cheese inside was warm and delicious, and the berry jelly was the perfect compliment to dip the sandwich in on the side. I simply had never experienced any food like the Monte Cristo before, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

My best friend and I were definitely happy campers with our experience at Cafe Orleans. It was a beautiful day to eat outside, enjoy the cold lemonade and devour our new favorite sandwiches and fries. Can't wait to someday go again!

Have you been to Cafe Orleans? What did you think?
What's your favorite restaurant in Disneyland?

Have a magical day!
