In the evening, the lights are dimmed and the oak tree centerpiece shimmers while guests dine under street lamps in a magical oasis. Each night, we feature an unlimited buffet of fresh, gourmet vegetables, soups and salads, accompanied by a delectable selection of Prime Rib, Half Roasted Chicken, or Cedar Plank Salmon and chef's created sides and a special Seafood Buffet on Friday. Don't forget to leave room for a selection of decadent desserts, created by our award winning pastry chef, Laurent Branlard.
The young at heart will also enjoy Disney character dining at dinner nightly and for breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays. Garden Grove is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
