Make Your Reservation Beginning March 12 for Mother’s Day at the Disneyland Resort

CORRECTION: Mother’s Day reservations are accepted beginning March 12, not March 11 as previously stated.

Mom’s special day isn’t until May 11, but you can soon begin making plans to pamper her at Disneyland Resort.

If you are looking for brunch options, Storytellers Cafe at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s PCH Grill at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel make great choices. Highlights at Storytellers Cafe include made-to-order omelets, brioche French toast with blackberry compote, roasted salmon with tangerine vinaigrette and carved beef (we’re partial to the corned beef hash with poached eggs and chipotle orange hollandaise). Disney’s PCH Grill features a smoked Scottish salmon station, parfait yogurt station, roasted chicken and vegetables and all the breakfast fixin’s, from fluffy scrambled eggs to huevos rancheros. Kids get their own buffet, including Mickey Mouse waffles. Cost for both locations is $33.99, $16.99 ages 3 to 9 11. Please note that the Mother’s Day Brunch previously held at the Disneyland Hotel will no longer be available.


Other restaurants are creating special dishes just for Mother’s Day. In Disneyland park, Carnation Cafe is serving seared mahi mahi with spinach orzo and a shrimp broth. Plaza Inn will serve a spicy glazed salmon with chipotle-pineapple glaze, veggies and mushroom quinoa, and the special at Blue Bayou is crab-stuffed shrimp with tomato-artichoke sauce.


For a fun treat, you’ll find almost-too-pretty-to-eat Mother’s Day cupcakes at several locations – a concoction of red velvet cake and white chocolate mousse frosting decorated with white chocolate flowers, hearts, strawberry chocolate curls and a flourish of silver “disco dust” ­– you’ll want to take a picture before you dig in! Mother’s Day cupcakes are available at at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe in Disneyland park and at Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe and Pacific Wharf Cafe in Disney California Adventure park. You can also find the cupcakes at The Coffee House in the Disneyland Hotel and Surfside Lounge at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel.

Reservations are accepted beginning March 12 11, 2014. Visit www.disneyland.com/dine or call 714-781-DINE (3463).


  • “Plaza Inn will serve a spicy glazed salmon with chipotle-pineapple glaze, veggies and mushroom quinoa”

    I’m curious about this, because the person I talked to at the Disneyland Dining reservation number shows the Plaza Inn as closed through May 15 for refurbishment, and Mother’s Day is on May 11. I would be over the moon if it were to be open the weekend of the 11th. We started planning our trip back in October, to take our 75-year-old mom down to Disneyland for Mother’s Day, specifically for the Royal Buffet at the DLH. Now that that’s not happening (I can’t tell you how genuinely bummed I am by this unexpected cancellation), it would be great if the Plaza Inn were actually going to be open, since Minnie and Friends is our favorite Character breakfast.

    Is it possible to get some clarity on this? Will Plaza Inn actually be open for Mother’s Day?

  • I am so sad that the Royal Buffet won’t be happening this year. It was a wonderful brunch AND character meal. For the remaining options: Storyteller’s and PCH Grill, will they still be having their usual character’s around for the Mother’s Day Brunch (Storyteller’s Critters and PCH’s Mickey/Stitch etc)?

  • do they do anything like this at Disney world?
