Tips for Dining at Napa Rose's Chef's Counter at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. Thursday, June 11, 2015 at 7:33 a.m. This is it: Your Disneyland summer. You bought an Annual Passport, and not just the Southern California Pass--you splurged for the Premium, the one that includes free parking and not a single blockout date. You've been to the parks so many times you've memorized the parking-tram announcements--both the English recording and the Spanish translation.

And earlier in the summer, you managed to stay awake for the entire duration of Disneyland's 24-hour event and have the stinky pile of sweat-stained clothes to prove it. At the best restaurant inside Disney's property: Napa Rose. Herewith are a few words of wisdom that I (yes, a Premium Annual Passport holder myself) would like to offer after my recent dinner there. To dine at Napa Rose, you needn't have a Disneyland passport or pay for parking.

Plan for a three-hour dinner. For every course, each person in your party will get a completely unique dish. Napa Rose Chef's Counter Review. Napa Rose in the Grand Californian Hotel is the best restaurant at Disneyland Resort. Blue Bayou, Carthay Circle Restaurant, and even Club 33 all pale in comparison to Napa Rose. A big part of this is likely that Napa Rose is the only restaurant of those I’ve mentioned not located in a theme park. While it still has a bit of a captive audience in terms of tourists visiting Disneyland Resort, it’s not nearly to the degree of the in-park restaurants. Given that the Orange County and Los Angeles foodie scene is among the best in the country, Napa Rose really has to bring its A game to attract locals who aren’t heading into the parks. I mean, this is an area with some of the finest Pop Tart culinary creations known to mankind. When restaurants throw down the Pop Tart gauntlet, you know it’s on. We’ve already covered the regular menu at Napa Rose in a separate review, so for this review we will focus solely on the Chef’s Counter experience… We all were winners with the entrees, too.
