Dining

GCH Craftsman Bar Grab some meals and drinks and eat at the poolside lounge at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. Both quick service and table service is available at this location. You may balk at the prices, but overall the food is very good.

Napa Rose Napa Rose may be the best restaurant in Orange County and has been at the top of most critics’ lists since its debut. Top talent in the kitchen (award-winning chef Andrew Sutton leads the charge) and in the dining room—a beautiful space with panoramic views and a wine cellar second to none—make this an incomparable gustatory experience. Every server has earned sommelier status, a designation that takes years of study and practical experience with wine and winemaking, easing the chore of choosing a wine from its cellar of more than 16,000 bottles. The waitstaff brings the whole experience, from wine rookies to experts, to match your level of knowledge and tastes. For food, look for unusual ingredients (Tahitian vanilla, smoked sturgeon, truffled quail eggs,lemongrass, almond oil) married to top-notch staples (lamb, Berkshire pork, pheasant breast, sustainable fresh fish), all deftly handled by a world-class kitchen crew. And though staff are very accommodating in the usual Disney manner, this is definitely not an adventure for the kids. Napa Rose should be on every adult’s Disney bucket list, a must-do at least once. An Albuquerque, New Mexico, woman tried Napa Rose and had this to say: Prices were quite high, but we had a very good time. Napa Rose was the highlight of the trip, and our waiter was very good.

Storytellers Cafe

GCH Craftsman Grill Grab some meals and drinks and eat inside a gloriously air conditioned room, or sip and dine in the poolside lounge at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. Both quick service and table service is available at this location. You may balk at the prices (such as over $25 for pizza), but overall the food is very good.

Hearthstone Lounge Lounge located off of the lobby of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. Service can be slow, but there's a good selection of drinks and a delicious bar menu.
