Food review- Carnation Cafe. I'm not a foody by any means, but thought I'd offer up a quick review. We (me, wife and son) had dinner at the Carnation Cafe this evening. The atmosphere and decor are spot-on Disney. That is, no noticeable blemishes. Wait staff is well trained and knowledgeable, all to be expected. It was 6:00 pm and a parade was going by but even so the wait was nominal at 12 minutes for an inside table. My son and I both had the Main Street Cheeseburger and my wife had the Turkey Sandwich on a pretzel roll. The food was a little slow (the table next to ours was also a party of 3, they were seated after we were, ordered after we did and received their order a full 5 minutes before we did.) Overall the food was well prepared, but honestly the Carl's Jr $6.00 burger is a better deal. The beef patty is thin, masking the taste in a large (tasty) bun with a large amount of lettuce. The fries were coated in a seasoned salt I could have done without and the portion seemed rather tiny for the price and they were cold. The turkey sandwich was another story- fresh pretzel bread with generous portions of thin sliced turkey with a proper proportion of lettuce and tomato served with fresh fruit. Very tasty, I recommend it. Dessert was strawberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream. To be fair, I don't like strawberry rhubarb, but the wife does. She said it was excellent. The crust was flaky and well made. My son tried a drink I recommend you avoid. The PB&J soda. (Sprite, grape grenadine and peanut butter flavor.) It tastes as bad as it sounds. I have no idea how they did it, but it left an aftertaste like a cigarette butt, no joking. To be fair, our waitress warned us that we would either love it or hate it, there would be no in-between. Because we hated it, she removed it from our bill. (Extra tip for her!) Overall, I would say the Cafe is on the "do again" list, I'm just going to try a different entree. Enjoy!

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com
unFORECAST for the month of May 2016 The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin May 9, 2016 5:42PM
