Lamplight Lounge

Lamplight Lounge

In my opinion, the best thing added to California Adventure with Pixar Pier was the Lamplight Lounge.

This new Pixar themed bar and restaurant replaced two former food locations from Paradise Pier, Ariel's Grotto and the Cove Bar.

It used this large space to fit in references from every Pixar film from Toy Story to Coco. Themed as a lounge where the Pixar animators visit this gave the park a great modern gastropub with views of Paradise Lagoon.

The restaurant features several great options including the legendary Lobster Nachos from the Cove Bar and one of the best burgers at the Disneyland Resort.

Also be sure to try the doughnuts. They come in a Lamplight Lounge themed box and with two dipping sauces and are a great way to end any meal here.

This restaurant also features an Instagram wall known as the quote wall. It features popular quotes from Pixar films. It can be a little difficult to get a good photo here as it is right next to the bathrooms, but it is a fun wall none the less.
