Half board at Disneyland Paris
Half board includes one meal (lunch or dinner) per person per day at selected restaurants. A current list of the meal plans is available here and worth studying to ensure you select what will best suit your family.
At the Davy Crockett Ranch you get vouchers for breakfast. So each morning, at the entrance of each cul-de-sac of chalets in a wooden breakfast hut. You can pop along there from 7.30 am to collect you breakfast bag. This contains fresh orange juice, baguette, brioche, Nutella, jam, butter, milk (UHT) coffee, hot chocolate , sugar etc.
We figured if we packed crisps and our breakfast baguettes in our bag we would by – pass lunch and enjoy a fab dinner each evening.
Disneyland Paris Restaurants
We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner at the Plaza Gardens. We had lunch on the night that we were attending the Wild West Show, as our evening meal was included in our show tickets. So we chose to use our meal tokens for lunch and to eat at the Plaza Gardens Restaurant. I’m so glad we did. Compared to some of the other busier more burger joint type places, this was much more civilised. A beautiful restaurant, with a touch of class. An all you can eat buffet, with a choice that would surely satisfy everybody’s needs. Princess D still talks about the puddings – they were rather scrummy!
On our stay over Halloween, I booked the Plaza Gardens for dinner on the night of the Halloween party. This was so that we could pop out and enjoy the illuminations on the restaurant terrace, and so we were already in the park and ready for the party, thus avoiding huge queues. Dinner is very similar to lunch, with the same sort of choice. Dinner is certainly busier and I would highly recommend booking in advance.
La Cantina at Santa Fe hotel
La Cantina provides a fantastic setting for dinner, based on the Cars theme. Get the real feel of travelling down Route 66, whilst enjoying a splendid buffet incorporating a delicious Mexican theme.
The Chuck Wagon
The Chuck Wagon is a great choice for dinner away from the hustle and bustle of the parks. It’s located at the Cheyenne Hotel.
It offers a fantastic choice of BBQ foods, along with pastas/ salads and yummy puddings. After dining it’s nice to sit outside (assuming the weather is good) on one of the wooden benches and enjoy a drink. Various character appearances are almost a certainty.
The Davy Crockett Tavern
The Davy Crockett Tavern is a great option if you a staying at the ranch. All you can eat buffet with plenty of choice of meat, fish , salads and pudding. The outdoor seating is lovely. When we stay on the ranch we like to come back for a swim in the pool and then spend the evening enjoying a leisurely meal before wandering back to the chalet.
The Cowboy Cookout BBQ
The Cowboy Cookout is located in Frontierland and is great for a fast and entertaining meal. Every time we have been there has been live music and plenty of character appearances.
La Grange at Billy Bobs
La Grange is located in the Disney Village. Its fantastic for a lively, fun dinnertime buffet. It’s all about the Wild West in this authentic wooden frontier saloon. Liquor barrels, stag antlers and historic photos of the cowboy legends surround you and fabulous live music plays in the bar below. The food choices include meats, fish, veg and scrummy deserts. We visited during Halloween and the décor was fab!
There are many more restaurants you can eat at using your half board vouchers. Take a look at the Disney website for up to date availability and to get a rough idea of where you would like to eat. Don’t forget to book where you can!
