When you think of what Disney’s theme parks are known for, fine dining is not normally near the top of the list, but for a park located just outside Paris, France an elevated dining experience is required. Walt’s is arguably the nicest restaurant inside Disneyland Paris; you can think of it as equivalent of Club 33, but without the costly yearly membership.
The Disney Blog had the opportunity to tour and experiencing a meal at a recent media event and came away very impressed. Walt’s is a unique experience for many Disney theme park fans. There’s something special just dining on the second floor of Main Street USA. Add to that, the restaurant decorations that tell the the story of the life and work of Walt Disney himself, and you have a must-do for any Disney fan visiting Paris Disneyland.
The experience begins in the ground floor lobby where the story of Walt and Lillian is retold through decor and photographs. Like the iconic private Club 33 at Disneyland, guests at Walt’s then ascend to the dining room via a beautiful staircase.
Each of the six dining rooms represent a different theme: Fantasyland, Adventureland, Discoveryland, Disneyland Hotel, Grand Canyon, and Frontierland. The walls of each room are lined with concept art from some of Disney’s most iconic attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean and Big Thunder Mountain. (click to embiggen, as always)
As you might expect in a themepark located in France, the food at Walt’s is another attraction. Some of the dishes were inspired by Walt’s favorite food, but there’s also a desire to innovate and provide guests a unique dining experience.
In addition to a regular menu, Walt’s offers a Premium Menu where you have a choice of 3 courses for about 60 euros. Our our visit as invited media, we were treated to a selection of dishes from this menu. As you can see from the gallery below they all looked amazing and tasted great as well.

Walt’s is one of the most popular restaurants inside Disneyland Paris, so advanced reservations are recommended and can be made up to 2 months prior to your arrival date.
