Dinner at Walt's Restaurant, Disneyland Paris

My Birthday treat this summer was my first visit for dinner at Walt's Restaurant on Main Street at Disneyland Paris. This restaurant is themed around the history of Walt Disney and the parks. Downstairs in the lobby were photos and objects related to Walt's life.

Upstairs, the restaurant was divided into four areas, each themed around the history of a different land at Disneyland Paris. We were seated in the Discoveryland themed room which was just stunning. The room had an art deco feel with pictures and statues related to Jules Verne and in our part to the Nautilus from 2000 Leagues which was perfect for me as this is one of my favourite little walk through attractions.

The art nouveau style permeated through the stunning swirling painted ceiling, the beautiful carved wooden fireplace and even the carved backs of the chairs.

We were seated by the window which gave great views onto Main Street, during parade time these window views can be quite sort after for a view of the parade as it goes down Main Street, we were eating in the evening after parade time.

The menu showed historical photos from Walt's life and we chose to eat a starter and a main as we had pre-booked my Birthday cake.

The children's menu included a paper game to make which thankfully kept the kids entertained for quite a while. I felt this was the perfect holiday to experience Walt's for the first time as had the kids been much younger they may have struggled to sit in this quiet restaurant for the length of our meal.

Pictured are my main, the chicken breast with thanksgiving stuffing, sweet potato and giblet gravy and my husband's main, the seasonal fish, risotto, carrots and peas. All the food was very well presented and tasted delicious.

The kids' food was fine but for very plain food I felt the three course limited menu was overpriced. They weren't very keen on the starter, they mainly ate from the bread basket. To be fair my two do prefer their food plain and this was better catered for with the mains which they did eat and enjoy (one had pasta, the other had burger). They also enjoyed the desert, decorate your own ice cream with lots of toppings to choose from at the end. 

My favourite treat was this non-alcoholic alcoholic cocktail 'Sweet Main Street', complete with candy floss flavour and candy floss on top and a glowing ice cube. It was fun and tasted great, disappointingly it is only available from this restaurant but that did make it more special.

The meal ended with my Birthday cake brought out by our waiter with a group of cast members from the restaurant providing the voices to accompany with singing "Happy Birthday". We ended with a coffee to accompany this delicious chocolate mousse and lemon cake and couldn't believe it when we realised we had been at the restaurant for three hours! Three hours we'll spent, we had really enjoyed our meal.

The menu included a range of starters, mains and deserts. It also included a variety of priced set menus with a limited choice on each. We chose to eat from the Walt's menu (pictured in the review) with a choice of three dishes for each course and with two courses costing E39.99 and three cost E49.99. There was also a premium menu at E59.99 and a signature menu at E69.99 per person. We chose two courses from the Walt;s menu as we had already booked the Birthday Cake as a desert. The children's meal at E34.99 for three courses was definitely overpriced and very expensive especially as the kids did not eat much of the starter,  I think this isn't a meal to do 'for the kids'.  However the experience as a whole was definitely worth it for us for the food and surroundings made it an extra special Birthday treat.
