The ultimate Disney dining experience begins with a private escort to the Disneyland Park venue from the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, which takes guests behind the scenes. After arriving at the expansive suite above the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, enjoy a welcome cocktail and tour the suite that was once imagined as a private apartment for founder Walt Disney. A seven-course meal with sommelier-guided wine pairings could include epicurean delights like osetra caviar, Kobe beef and Périgord truffles. Each whimsically named course comes with a story from the chef. While the package includes a private tour and priority access to 30 attractions, guests may also opt for a prime viewing position on the balcony overlooking Rivers of Americas for the Fantasmic! show or fireworks spectacular.
