Get Mom Out of the Kitchen for Mother’s Day, Special Dining May 13 at Disneyland Resort

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to pamper Mom. Disneyland Resort makes it easy, with four diverse dining options, all with special touches.

Mother’s Day is a tradition at the Disneyland Hotel, and this year the theme is “Join Cinderella and Her Princess Friends for Disney’s Royal Buffet for Mother’s Day.” The fun starts at 10 a.m. with delicious, all-you-care-to-eat tastes served until 3 p.m. in the Disneyland Grand Ballroom – we counted more than 50 delicious items on the menu, including prime rib and herb-crusted leg of lamb.

And of course, Cinderella and her friends – and special musical entertainment – take it over the top. With everything from breakfast classics like fresh omelets and French crepes to meats, seafood and artisan cheeses, it’s a real treat for everyone in the family. (Champagne and a chocolate fountain are the proverbial icing on the cake).

Cost is $71.99, $20.99 for ages 3 to 9, plus tax and gratuity (Premium Annual Passholders get a discount). Four-hour complimentary self-parking is available.

Both Blue Bayou and Plaza Inn at Disneyland park have special prix fixe menus for Mother’s Day. Blue Bayou is serving pan-seared, hazelnut-crusted sea bass with king crab legs, preserved lemon and butter sauce, sweet corn Green chili risotto, spicy mango jelly and Nicoise olive fennel relish. Cost is $39.99 – an easy way to impress mom!

Plaza Inn is offering pineapple-glazed, spiced salmon with peach-strawberry salsa, rice pilaf, sautéed green beans and bread sticks for $16.99. A nice respite for a day in the park.

Or start your day at Storytellers Cafe, in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, where the all-you-care-to-eat buffet includes buttermilk biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, eggs Benedict, Mickey waffles, omelets, smoked salmon, fresh berries and yogurt and more. Cost is $31.99, $15.99 for ages 3 to 9, plus tax and gratuity.
