Restaurant Recommendations Within Walking Distance of Disneyland Hotel?
Walking distance? Uff da.
The happy hour burger at McCormick and Schmick's—and ONLY in the bar (yes, kids are allowed as long as they don't sit actually at the bar), and ONLY during happy hour when it's $2.99. California burritos and carne asada nachos (get the half size of the latter—you will have to ask for it as it's not on the menu) at Alerto's on the NE corner of Katella and Harbor.
Pizza and reasonable Italian at Marri's Pizza on Katella and Walnut. The pizza at Napoli in Downtown Disney is inconsistent, but very good when it's "on", but also extremely expensive. The small plates at Uva Bar in Downtown Disney are not too bad, and again, kids welcome as long as they don't sit directly at the bar.
If you're up for a longer walk, k'ya at the Hotel Ménage on the SW corner of Ball and Harbor is a good small-plates place, good prices.
There's really not very much at all within walking distance. If you were willing to take the bus (either OCTA or the ART shuttle) you'd have a great deal more, and better, within just 5-10 minutes' bus ride.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU CONSIDER GOING TO CAPTAIN KIDD'S ON HARBOR ACROSS FROM THE PEDESTRIAN ENTRANCE TO DISNEYLAND, EVEN IF THEY GIVE YOU COUPONS FOR FREE FOOD.
