Disneyland Restaurant Takes Fan-Favorite Monte Cristo off One of Their Menus

Guests who have visited Blue Bayou at Disneyland lately had the unpleasant surprise of glancing at the menu, fully expecting to order the fan-favorite Monte Cristo sandwich, and the sandwich had disappeared from the menu! This has caused quite the outrage on social media, with rumors swirling that Blue Bayou has officially taken it off their menu. This deep-fried ham and Swiss sandwich topped with powdered sugar has long been a favorite since the restaurant opened. Growing up, I used to go with my parents all the time to the Blue Bayou back when the Monte Cristo’s were big enough for a family of 4 to share.  Disney has recently slowly started making the sandwiches smaller, making them more expensive and certainly not shareable for a family of 3-4. Nevertheless, they are still really delicious!

In hearing these rumors, I, of course, had to hop online to check out the Blue Bayou’s menu. I have been trying for quite some time now to get a reservation at this dining spot and have been unsuccessful, so I just needed to know if my favorite dish had, in fact, been taken off the menu. Those of you who love this sandwich as much as I do…well, good news and bad news!

Yes, the Monte Cristo has been taken off the Blue Bayou’s dinner menu, BUT it is still on their lunch menu! So, if you’re looking to dine at this spot solely for their Monte Cristo’s, you’re going to want to snag a lunch reservation if you can.
