“An honest review for Christmas dinner in this restaurant.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

I checked reviews on this restaurant before I went and all was good, when I experienced it for myself it was a whole different experience, what a let down. Firstly, it doesn't matter what time you are booked in for you could be standing in a Que for 30-50mins, they tell you 10-15mins but reality it is 30-50mins as you get your photo taken with Ariel on the way down, also some VIP family's get to pass everyone in Que which mad me quite mad!!!! Then, the restaurant, inside is very small and very old looking, not much Ariel/Disney Décor an the furniture is very old, needs an update badly. Then the food was something else, terrible couldn't describe it. Not much options and for Christmas dinner it was a huge let down. Kids had little options and if you have a fussy eater among your kids, we did, it's a very stressful and annoying task in trying to order something for the kids. Then the Princesses come out and if you want to get all the autographs in one go this is definitely the place. Then the bill came in an it was seriously, very overpriced. It works out at $42 per Adult and $21 per child and then Taxes, Gratuity it worked out to $155 for the meal.............and we all hated it, kids and us. Terrible experience and very over expensive for below average food. Never ever again.

“Ok But Used to be Better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

Second time coming here on Xmas day. Our first experience was great but they have changed the menu. The selection is more limited and they have stopped serving the appetizer tower which was our favorite and replaced it with soup or salad option. The quality and tast of the food is still very good. Your at Disneyland so the price wasn't unexpected. Service was excellent.

“Beautiful View!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

We had a nice dinner with a gorgeous view. The food was good, and the staff was very helpful to deal with my husbands fish allergy, and my celiac. There were many options, and the prices were pretty decent.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

We ate here for the World of Color Dining experience. Food was ok but not worth the price that we paid. Would not eat here again.
