Mickey Pancakes and More!

When our friends over at Adult Side of Disney asked what some of our favorite Disneyland eating spots were, River Belle  Terrace immediately came to mind as a must do on every Disneyland trip.  Located across from the Rivers of America where Frontierland meets Adventureland lies one of my family’s favorite eating spots in all of Disneyland-the River Belle Terrace.  Not only is this one of the original eateries from when Disneyland opened in 1955, but it is the only place in the Park to get the coveted Mickey Mouse Pancakes. This quick service restaurant boasts incredible menu choices throughout the day

For breakfast, choices range from the Mickey Pancakes, to the Mark Twain platter of scrambled eggs, country-style potatoes, bacon or sausage, and a biscuit to a fresh fruit platter large enough to be shared by the entire family and the perfect choice for those with special dietary considerations in your group. Lunchtime selections include our favorite the Tennessee BBQ pork while the Vegan traveler in our group loves the Vegetable Po’ boy.

The Plantation roast beef salad with southern ranch, the citrus-tarragon-dressed rosemary turkey breast salad and Aunt Polly’s harvest medley offers something a little lighter to save room for bigger meals later in the day.  Every Disneyland insider knows that not only does the River Belle Terrace offer incredible food, but come nightfall, the outdoor patio area offers one of the best seats in the house for viewing of Disneyland’s nighttime spectacular, Fantasmic.  Pull up a table along the fence of the patio and enjoy an evening meal of Huck’s Slow Roasted Beef served with horseradish gravy, the Catch of the Day or for those needing specialty items to take care of other dietary considerations, the River Belle
 Be sure to save room for dessert.  Choices range from the melt in your mouth Key Lime Pie to a delectable Red Velet Cake to a Minty Grasshopper Pie or my personal favorite, the Café Au Lait Cheesecake. So let’s review-Mickey Mouse Pancakes for breakfast, great quick service meals throughout the day with something for everyone combined with the nostalgic feel of one of the original Disneyland eateries and the perfect view of Fantasmic-the only question to answer is now is what are you waiting for? Head on over to the River Belle Terrace located in the heart of Disneyland across from the Mark Twain.
