Where in Disneyland Paris would you live?
This idea for a blog post came from a chat I was having with Manda from Manda’s Disney Blog on Twitter yesterday evening. She was trying to guess my accent from my appearance as guest host on episode 3 of the DLP Newscast and I ended up saying I am from Disneyland Paris! It went on from there and I said that my ideal place to live in Disneyland Paris would be The Blue Lagoon. It’s not just because it’s close to my favourite ride, Pirates of the Caribbean, but that…
2010 DIS Forum Disneyland Paris Awards Results: Best Overall Restaurant
WINNER Walt’s (29%) 2nd Annette’s (24%) 3rd Café Mickey (17%) 4th Blue Lagoon (8%) 5th= Agrabah Cafe (4%) 5th= Auberge de Cendrillon (4%) 5th= Billy Bob’s Country Western Saloon (4%) 5th= California Grill (4%) 5th= Inventions (4%) 5th= Silver Spur Steakhouse (4%) Two great restaurants were neck and neck until the end when Walt’s clung on to win. Of course my vote goes to Blue Lagoon and I am a little surprised at how it’s popularity seems to have decreased over the years, at least for these awards anyway.
2010 DIS Forum Disneyland Paris Awards Results: Best Disney Village Restaurant
WINNER Annette’s Diner (40%) 2nd Café Mickey (36%) 3rd The Steakhouse (12%) 4th Rainforest Café (8%) 5th Billy Bob’s Country Western Saloon (4%) I agree with this one. We ate at Annette’s Diner twice on our last visit and the food was very testy, plentiful and served with a smile. It has a great 1950’s theme and some of the staff are even on rollerskates – I’ve never seen anyone drop anything either, yet! Below is a photo of the fantastic chicken salad that I had 2 evenings in a row…
2010 DIS Forum Disneyland Paris Awards Results: Best Walt Disney Studios Restaurant
WINNER Café des Cascadeurs (57%) 2nd Blockbuster Café (36%) 3rd Backlot Express (7%) I have to admit that we rarely eat in Walt Disney Studios, usually choosing to eat in Parc Disneyland (like my clever use of the French version instead of just Disneyland Park? Clever me) or Disney Village. The runaway win for Café des Cascadeurs makes me want to try it out though. I did some research and found the menu over at Disney Central Plaza – photo credit goes to Serleena. Unless I am missing something it looks…

The ambience is better than any other restaurant I’ve ever been in, Disney and others. The food has always…
2010 DIS Forum Disneyland Paris Awards Results: Best Hotel Restaurant
WINNER Inventions at Disneyland Hotel (29%) 2= California Grill at Disneyland Hotel (18%) 2= Chuck Wagon Cafe at Hotel Cheyenne (18%) 4= Hnter’s Grill at Sequoia Lodge (12%) 4= La Catina at Hotel Santa Fe (12%) 6= Cape Cod at Newport Bay Club (6%) 6= Manhattan Restaurant at Hotel New York (6%) While I have not eaten in all the hotel restaurants I have eaten in quite a few and agree 100% that Inventions is the best, not only for food but also for character interaction. It’s not cheap at €59…
