While at Disneyland, several Kingdom Konsultant Agents wanted to try the famous Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland Park. Blue Bayou is located in New Orleans Square, INSIDE Pirates of the Caribbean, in fact! When you start your journey on Pirates, as you sail through the quiet bayou, the restaurant is part of the ambience. It’s a beautiful space, always night time, with lanterns and moss hanging from the ceiling. Prime seating is by the water but we didn’t request those accommodations as we were just happy to be inside the famed Blue Bayou!

Because it is always nighttime at Blue Bayou, it can be dark depending on where you are sitting. A very thoughtful touch is lights inside the menus!
For entrees, we ordered the Creole Roasted Chicken for $36 and 2 Monte Cristo’s for $29 each. The Creole Roasted Chicken included Andouille sausage, shrimp, rice and Creole Sauce. We self-described this as the non-soup version of the Chicken Gumbo, and it was delicious. It had a spicy, smoky kick, but I don’t think it would be off putting for those who are spice-adverse. The Monte Cristo sandwiches each come with 3 large wedges, which was just the right amount for each of us to have a wedge along with everything else. It is ham, turkey, and cheese battered and deep fried, topped with powdered sugar and served with the most delicious berry preserves. It sounds odd but it just makes sense.
We passed on dessert because we were stuffed (and there are yummy treats to be found outside the restaurant!) but there are a few tempting options like cheesecake and a sundae.
New Orleans Square is such a beautiful part of Disneyland Park, I would encourage you to explore this area while you’re waiting for your table or after your meal at Blue Bayou. See if you can find the mysterious Club 33 or the Walt Disney Dream Suite!
