Any restaurant that starts your meal by putting your napkin in your lap usually provides good service and Carthay Circle definitely met expectations. The menu was interesting with seafood, duck and steaks. While I appreciate that it is fine dining, it was tough for some of my picky eaters to find something on the menu they could deal with--but the... More

A little hard to change the mindset of rushing around the park to a leisurely dinner. Food was good. The package for world of color is worth it. We had dinner reservations at 5:20 and fast passes that ended at 7. We barely made it. I'd go back but next time I'd make sure my schedule was clear for a... More

We had dinner at the Carthay Circle Restaurant to celebrate our grandson's birthday. We requested seating on the terrace. At first none was available but the mater d put two tables together so we could sit there. The fireworks in Disneyland were wonderful and we could see them clearly!. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious - worth the expense.... More

What a lovely experience! Waiting in the Carthay Circle Lounge was enjoyable as there were many lush seating arrangements as well as pictures of Walt Disney at Red Carpet events and the Oscars his movies won. Our Maitre'D told us some fun facts about the restaurant as he led us to our table and our server, Domenico (I believe) was... More

Let me caveat by saying we were a large group in a private room, so had to select from a restricted menu and were probably harder to cater for, but I just didn't get the wow and deliciousness I expect from a signature Disney restaurant menu. Service was very good however, and the decor in the restaurant is beautiful. I... More

You don't expect fine dining in a world of churros, but Carthay Circle delivers. Good wine list, solid beer selection, and the food was excellent. Staff were also on point, with smart, friendly service and excellent recommendations. Worth a trip, and hey, where can you mix white table clothes and mouse ears?

Without question, the BEST dining in Disneyland! We booked the World of Color package and are so glad we did. Combining the dining experience with the World of Color made for an unforgettable evening. We actually went to Carthay Circle on Halloween night as we did not buy the Mickey's Halloween Party (and really, didn't feel like we missed anything!).... More

Made reservations at this upscale restaurant for the WOC package. It did not disappoint. The decor, ambiance, and overall impression of this fine dining experience was top notch. You are greeted downstairs by friendly staff and wait in the comfortable lounge for your table to be ready. The service comes with a smile and the food was excellent. Get the... More

Well what can I say. Dining expectations are lowered when dining in a theme park, even a good Theme park like Disneyland. The outstanding service starts as soon as as you arrive at Carthay Circle and check into this restaurant and continues as you get a guided tour of the dining venue as you are being ushered to your table....

My boyfriend and I stopped in this place for a couple of drinks and appetizers. It was nice break away from the heat and the crowds. I wish we would have considered eating dinner here. Maybe next time!
