Disney Magic and Kids - Downtown Disney's Tortilla Jo's

During our visit to the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, my son and I scheduled a dinner with Kristen and Aljon. Also joining us were a few of our Twitter friend, Sheila of CookingUnderwriter.com, and her family. We had decided a good location to meet was in the Downtown Disney District at Tortilla Jo's. For those of you who are not familiar with Disneyland, the Downtown Disney District is located right outside of the theme parks, Disneyland and Disney California Adventures. Visitors to the Downtown Disney District can park there for free for 3 hours or for 5 hours if the parking voucher is validated. If you are instead visiting the Disneyland theme park, the monorail can be taken to the Downtown Disney District from Tomorrowland. The ride is short with the monorail stop being very close to Tortilla Jo's.

Once we arrived at the restaurant, we were sat outside on the patio in the corner. My son and Sheila's daughter were sat beside one another in hopes that they would better enjoy their dinner experience. We had spent the day before with Sheila so we already knew that they would get along great.

Tortilla Jo's menu includes primarily mexican fare. In addition, you can choose from a variety of salads. If drinks are more your style, the restaurant's bar includes over 100 tequila selections of blanco, reposado and anejo. No one at the table took part in tequila shots, but several of us enjoyed margaritas of various types. The children's menu includes taco, burritos and chicken fingers. My son decided he did not want mexican food, thus he chose to order chicken fingers. Once we received our food, it was plentiful and very enjoyable. The children both ate their entire plate of food.

I personally enjoyed this restaurant because it offered the children the opportunity to eat great food. The seating outside gave the children the opportunity to be a bit louder then normal without anyone noticing. Being sat in the corner of the restaurant, my son and Sheila's daughter had plenty of space to play cars around the table, using the gate as a road. Neither of the children asked if it was time to go yet (a frequent questioned asked during a dining experience by my son!)

Perhaps this was the perfect dining experience when dining with more than one child because they had the freedom to be kids without disturbing others!
