Disneyland Dining Reservations for Tinker Bell Half

Just a reminder- you can now book your Disneyland dining reservations for the Tinker Bell half marathon weekend! Disneyland books 60 days in advance (WDW is 180 days).

I'll be having my celebratory race weekend meal at Carthay Circle in California Adventure. I've eaten here once before and it is delicious! 

I also made a few reservations at my favorite breakfast spot. This is hands down my favorite place to eat breakfast. It's one of the few table service places in Disneyland and the prices are comparable to quick service places. 

Another popular place to eat is the Blue Bayou in Disneyland. The restaurant is actually inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride! Perfect for a romantic dinner or a nice celebratory meal.

Here's the complete list of restaurants inside the parks where you can make dining reservations. Links lead to more info about the restaurants.

Blue Bayou
Cafe Orleans
Carnation Cafe
Plaza Inn
Big Thunder Ranch BBQ

California Adventure
Carthay Circle
Ariel's Grotto

You can make these reservations online or by calling (714) 781-3463. If it's been a while since you've made a reservation at Disneyland, they now require a credit card to hold the reservation. If you cancel less than 24 hours in advance, you will be charged $10/person. 


  1. Thank you for posting this!! I need to start thinking about reservations for post-race celebrations!!

    1. Somewhere preferably with a nice beer! :)

  2. My favorite is the Trattoria at CA Adventure. I've never had trouble just walking in, but I usually go there for lunch and head to Downtown Disney at dinnertime.

    1. Mmmm. I hear they have a nice lounge area on the second floor that has a nice view. I hope to check it out in January.

  3. I so wish we were going to DL in January! There certianly are some nice restaurants to choose from!

    1. They certainly have some great places to choose from. :)

  4. Yay! It all sounds delicious! I know you're going to have a great race and enjoy all the awesome food after. :0)
