Steakhouse 55 Breakfast Review

Steakhouse 55 is a fine-dining restaurant in the Disneyland Hotel.  During the evening, Steakhouse 55 is the premier (and only?) steakhouse on Disneyland property.  This restaurant is also a nice place for breakfast, serving traditional American breakfast dishes.  We’ve dined here twice for breakfast and this review will […]

Located in one of the quieter parts of Disney’s California Adventure, Wine Country Trattoria offers Tuscan flavors as the restaurant tries to give it’s best Napa Valley impression.  Pasta, salads, sandwiches, and a few specialty items are offered here.  Wine Country Trattoria is open for lunch and dinner […]
