The BEST Disneyland Paris restaurant?

Have you ever wondered down Main Street USA and wondered what is in the upstairs of the buildings? Well, did you know that Disneyland Paris has a very special restaurant right on the corner of Main Street USA and Flower Street; 1401 Flower Street AKA Walt’s Restaurant.

Walt’s Restaurant review in full on our YouTube channel

When you walk in to the restaurant itself, with the collective sounds of Main Street USA’s magic behind you, you enter a beautiful turn of the century establishment with a stained glass roofed elevator lift, a mini grand piano and umpteen photos of Walt and turn of the century USA. 

In case you didn’t know, 1401 Flower Street is the address of Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, California 🙂

The menu is lovely, it was really hard to pick from, but they had a set menu where you pick 1 starter, 1 main course and 1 dessert for 55 euros each, which I don’t think is too bad! It was really hard to decide but here’s what I ended up choosing:

THE REVIEW

The starters:

I ended up choosing the Waldorf Salad and Stef had the Chicken Pot Pie. The Waldorf salad was absolutely delicious! Possibly one of the very top salads I’ve ever had, the apple, the walnuts, the dressing and the salty crispy seaweed (not sure it was actually seaweed but that’s what it made me think of!) complimented each other so well, it was divine!

Stef’s chicken pot pie was lovely, very filling, especially for a starter but its was warming, homely, happy stodgy food!

The main events:

I had the Cajun Arctic Char, I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, I really struggled to choose from the menu as I could have chosen any of the options… I asked our server his opinion and he said the butter sauce with the char was amazing so that’s what I went with! I had never had char before and wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. I love seafood and I love fish but I don’t anything too fishy, like fish pie, I hate fish pie (sorry to any fish pie lovers) but the char was very similar to salmon, it was flaky, light, tasty, meaty rather than fishy and the cajun spiced coating was so good! The buttery sauce was indeed beautiful. Plus the side of wild rice with sweet corn was such a lovely addition to the course. I’m not going to lie, I was absolutely stuffed by end of the main course!

Stef had the Mac & Cheese, this was the other option I very nearly ordered! The Mac & Cheese was no ordinary Mac & Cheese, it came with pastrami and shittake mushroom and was unreal! I’ve had Mac & Cheese with ham and with bacon but never with pastrami and I’m converted forever! It was ever so slightly salty, ever so slightly peppery and oh it was so good!

Would I choose the Mac & Cheese over the fish if we went again? Well that’s a very hard question. I don’t know if I’m honest, I would probably just ask whoever I’m with to get the Mac & cheese, I can then order the char and make them share with me!

Disney desserts:

I’m not the biggest dessert fan, I much prefer a savoury meal, of the options on the menu I went with the Lemon Meringue Pie and I expected a big slice of pie to come out, but an adorable single pie made it way to my table with the cutest Mickey meringue! It was really lovely, the meringue had a lovely crunch to it, it was gooey in the middle, exactly as it should be. The cruise of the pie was a little hard rather than crumbly, the lemon was lovely and it was a sprinkling of gold sugar across the plate which gave it a lovely added sweet crunch! Would I order it again? I’d have rather had 2 starters if I’m honest… it didn’t blow me away.

Stef had the Flower Street Sundae which was a deconstructured ice cream treat with brightly coloured flower petals. I LOVE the easter egg meaning to the flowers (Flower Street) and the ice cream was creamy and delicious. It would have been too much dairy for me but it was a great option.

Drinks:

We both ordered a mimosa which was lush! Freshly squeezed real orange juice with champagne. Yes thank you very much, we had 2 each! We also had a soft drink / soda and some water for the table too. Couldn’t fault the Mimosa, it was a perfect addition to our meal!

Service:

Our server was warm, friendly, helpful and on the ball, what more could you ask for?! The greeter downstairs was also lovely, she talked about the menu with us, gave us her suggestions, she managed to get us a window seat too (definitely ask for one!) and got us seated promptly after arriving.

Atmosphere:

It was quite a formal atmosphere, it was great for Stef & I, I’m not sure I’d want to take the boys in there…. it would have been an entirely different experience with them! It is certainly an ideal adult spot though.

Extra Magic:

They have the limited edition Walts Restaurant pin here, there are only 1901 of them (1901 being the year Walt was born) it was 30 euros so of course we both had to have one! It’s one of my very favourite pins (avid pin collector over here!) and has a rightful place amongst my DISNEYLAND PARIS pins.

Overall experience:

Overall experience was lovely. It was a bucket list restaurant for me so my expectations were quite high, it absolutely met those expectations! Beautifully themed, immaculately dressed and clean, warm service, great drinks, delicious food, lovely views and a LE exclusive pin, yes thank you very much!

Overall cost:

Our total bill came to 247 euros, so divided by 2 it was an expensive lunch, but that was 3 courses, 2 mimosa’s, a coke, water and of course my beloved exclusive limited edition pin! Definitely a boujie option but well worth the visit.

Would I visit again? If I wasn’t staying at the Disneyland Hotel and couldn’t access their exclusive restaurants then YES. If I was staying at the Disneyland Hotel and could access their restaurants then probably not. Full review of Disneyland Hotel restaurants incoming sooooooon!
