This year the group awarded Disneyland Resort a dozen awards to eight restaurants – two in Disneyland park, two in Disney California Adventure park and three in Disneyland Resort hotels.

Here are the awards:

Golden Bacchus Wine Award (the highest wine award):
Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge (Disney California Adventure park)

  • My favorite memory from our most recent Disneyland vacation two weeks ago was dinner at Carthay Circle Restaurant. Our four children are ages 15 through 8 years old. I loved letting them experience a fancy restaurant, even though we were all in our Seattle Seahawk t-shirts! :-) Our youngest was capitivated from the moment the napkin was placed in her lap. We had two wonderful hours of great conversation, laughter and trying new foods! I had quail for the first time. It was delicious! Again, it is a special memory that will last a lifetime!
