Café Orleans is a great place to eat while for guests who want to take in the sights of New Orleans Square. Café Orleans has both indoor and outdoor seating and is located between The Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion rides, in front of the shops. The indoor seating houses vintage Disney artifacts from Walt’s Day, while the outside provides stunning views of the Rivers of America and during most nights the beloved show Fantasmic. Here guests can eat anything from a Monte Cristo sandwich to gumbo or the “Crescent City” salad with blackened chicken or salmon and the seafood herb crepe, during this casual sit down meal. Like the Blue Bayou, Café Orleans accepts reservations and they are recommended, especially during the busy summer months.
