We had a lunch/snack while waiting for a show. The Stage Door Cafe probably has some of the worst food in the park. I knew better than to eat there but didn't want to risk missing any of the show.

I had the fried chicken strips and french fries. Huge portion, bu I'm not sure I could have given the food away. Everything was cold but I'm sure it wouldn't have been good hot either. Hot sauce was soooo hot I couldn't try more than a bite (if you REALLY like hot, this might be the place for you; I was surprised to get anything this spicy at Disneyland). Overall a sodden, greasy, depressing experience.

Coffee might have been okay; my husband drank it. I threw my hot tea away (again, something I know better than to order at Disneyland but I was tired).

Service was pleasant enough but quite slow, even for walk up.

Since we were there for the show, next time I think I'd just get a drink there and bring in a snack from a better venue. I didn't get the sense they'd mind, so long as you were discreet.

Summary: show GOOD; food BAD.

We decided to take a chance and try this place out. We usually stick to our old stand-by favorites, but it smelled so good, we went in. My husband and I each ordered the chicken strips meal & a soda. The portions were huge. We could have shared one meal. The kids also got chicken strips kids' meals and couldn't finish their portions. The food was really good, and the service was wonderful. The cast member that took our order was friendly and helpful. My kids enjoyed eating on the balcony and watching the people below. I hear there are shows there, too. Seems like it would be a great way to spend a mealtime. We spent $40 for a family of 5, and could have spent much less. We'd definitely go back to eat there again next time!

Guests: Jennifer and me
What we had: Mozzarella sticks w/french fries

Not a lot to say; this was a snack to tide us over until a late dinner. The mozzarella sticks were fresh out of the fryer, crispy on the outside and hot and cheesy on the inside. The accompanying marinara sauce was nothing special, but did add a nice contrast to the breading on the mozzarella sticks. The fries were also fresh and flavorful.

Service: Counter-service. It felt like we were disturbing the Cast Member working the register, when we entered the mostly-empty building and waited a couple of minutes for her to take our order. The order was accurate, though, and it wasn't a big deal.

Would we go back: Yes. The Stage Door also features chicken strips and fish-and-chips.
