Nestled in the Disneyland Hotel away from the main thoroughfare it provides a semi private feeling. With a very small indoor bar attached to Tangaroa Terrace, this place can be easily missed. Decorated from top to bottom as only Disney can do. This place is eye candy for the tourist staying in the Disneyland Hotel but can be a nice get away for a local as many don't know this place exists. The inside is dark and cramped. While at the bar you periodically feel a slight mist spray as the lights flicker and the bar keep yells some sort of clever cliche that makes you feel like you are on Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Due to the size, this place can fill up fast leaving you waiting for some time to get a drink. The food is kept to only appetizers but boy are they good. Every single item on the menu was fun and delicious. My favorite is the Kalua Pork Flatbread that satisfies my sweet and salty cravings without over filling me. The prices are your expected Disney pricing but the flavors are surprising. The bar is pitifully stocked but hopefully this is due to it's newness and they will place more variety as it's doors stay open. I was hoping for a large rum selection being a tiki bar but they are currently failing on any rum variety at all (go buy a Sailor Jerry bottle from BevMo!). Their drinks were well made with fresh ingredients and were fun for both the eye and tongue. The service was friendly with good conversation and quick to accommodate any special requests. Overall this is a welcome addition to the Downtown Disney section making for a different getaway in typical Disney style. The food won't be your dinner if you are hungry but can definitely tickle your taste buds. With a better stocked rum selection this place could be five stars.
When it's dinner time at the Disneyland Resort our family never questions where we'll be digging in--it's always the Plaza Inn. The beautiful Victorian-designed restaurant, complete with crystal chandeliers and ornate window coverings, is located on the east side of Main Street near the entrance to Tomorrowland. It offers hearty, tradition dinners including pot roast, pasta dishes, salads, delicious desserts and our go-to dinner, fried chicken. The chicken dinner costs $13.99 and comes with four pieces of chicken. Kids meals are $7.50 and only come with a small portion of food. If you have two children, I suggest having the kids split one adult dinner. Just ask for an extra plate. During our last visit, my husband, our three boys and I split two adult dinners among us and were full. (We did have a few snacks for our toddler, but could have easily fed all of us.) Of course we saved room for a churro dessert a little later.
I went there with my wife and my parents. Ordered the sirloin entree and requested my sirloin to be medium rare to medium. Server suggested bringing it out medium rare to see if it was what I wanted and if not, could easily cook it more. When I received my entree, it was well done. I simply pointed it out and did so with no attitude and they came back with a new entree that was perfect. Out of the blue, the server and manager came by to apologize again and they comped my entree. No other restaurant I have been to ever gave the service I had received from them. I have gone back since and the service was the same with more attention to detail from the chefs.
