The Plaza Gardens Restaurant is located inside Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris, tucked away to the right at the end of Main Street, this buffet is one of the best value for money on property.Plaza Gardens serves a breakfast, lunch and dinner, all you can eat buffet. For the past year since Cafe Mickey’s in Disney Village stopped their character breakfast, Plaza Gardens became a character breakfast dining location. Please note that the character dining is only for breakfast. Reservations get snapped up quickly, I recommend booking 60 days out from your trip to guarantee a reservation. UK guests must call. EU residents can book online.
If you have purchased a package from the UK, then both the meal plans included in the package cover your party for breakfast, lunch and dinner here. If you are paying out of pocket, this will cost €34.99 for adults and €17.99 for children.
We dined for lunch on our last day, we did not make reservations as all the reservations for that day were full. So we waited in a standby line for a table to appear, it took no more than 5 minutes of waiting. Whilst we waited a castmember was creating Toy Story art with watermelons outside.
The interior is very well themed with a slight Victorian hint, a big flower feature welcomes you as you step through the door and the velvet drapes, giant mirrors and antique furniture makes you feel like you are not in a Disney park. If you have visited Walt Disney World the interior is extremely similar to Magic Kingdom’s, Plaza Restuarant.
We were seated towards the back of the restaurant, which I was always thankful for, it was quiet and not full of children.
The food selection for our lunch buffet was great and would satisfy both adventurous and fussy eaters. There were plenty of pasta, potatoes, pizza and vegetable options, soups and alot of different meat carvery stations. There was also a great cheese and charcuterie selection. As we visited during The Lion King and Jungle Festival, there were a few dishes inspired for the event, curried meats, mango tarts, peanut soup and safari macaroons. This is something I have not seen in Disneyland Paris buffet restaurants before.
I picked up a sliced of pizza, that was simply labelled cheese pizza, when I bit in to it, underneath the layers of cheddar and mozzarella was a secret layer of blue cheese. It was an amazing surprise. Sam filled his plate with carvery meats and I piled pizza and pasta on to my plate. The dessert selection was pretty poor, for me. A lot of the desserts contained nuts, pecan pie, macaroons and Nutella filled chocolate cakes. I stuffed my face with gummy animals and rhubarb tart.
Sam and I have dined in nearly every location within the Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios, this is, by far, the best quality, selection and priced restaurant on property.
