Not only do you get to see all the princesses but the food is good. Talk about little girls who are thrilled.

The princess dinner at Ariel's Grotto is actually pretty good. The food is much better than the rest of the park. The kids really love getting up and close to the princesses over lunch.

The princess lunch was definitely worth it to see my girls so happy and to not have to wait in line to see the princesses! You don't know which princesses will be there so it's kind of the luck of the draw, luckily a few...More

Long lines but worth it if you have kids. We always do this ride in Walt Disney World so were happy to see it in California Adventure Park. Went a couple of times only once when the line was short.

We made a reservation here so that we could get preferred seating for the World of Color show. The menu is prix fixe, so your options are limited, but it is a 3-course meal. The options are adequate, but the same Little Mermaid song playing...More

The good: The view was amazing. The location of the restaurant is perfect for an overlook of paradise pier. The atmosphere/decorations were very nice too. We met Ariel (only about 1 minute and that's who we came for. Was hoping she'd circulate but no). We...More

The one thing you have to remember is you are paying for entertainment. Came here for family dinner of 4. This is about the only place you can have Princess Dinning at Disneyland Resort. The princesses were great. I would say compared to some of...More

It's about $45 but so worth it. A lot of things are "once in a lifetime" and then a few years pass, and you come back for ... "one more time". This was a once in a lifetime, but I wouldn't have missed it for anything!

Hello! We went there back in December and there were Cinderella, Tiana, Belle, Rapunzel and, of course, Ariel. My 4-year old niece was really amazed by all of them. We also used Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique service as a princess... More
