<<A Taste of
Disneyland with TinkWest>>
--Uva Bar in Downtown Disney--
After years and years of enjoying
the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort we had never
eaten, or even had a drink, at the outdoor Uva Bar. Located right in
the middle of the shops and walkways you cannot miss it, but for
some reason we had always passed it by – on our way to somewhere
This year, on a beautiful June evening, we decided to stop by and
see what it was all about. With the sun setting but still bright the
yellow umbrellas above the tables were welcome, allowing us to enjoy
the outdoors without feeling the effects of any direct heat.
Although it is situated in the middle of things we still felt
isolated enough so that the passing foot traffic didn’t seem right
on top of us.
We were lucky enough, at 6:30pm, to be seated immediately without
reservations. The bar area appeared to be fairly full, with people
coming and going and empty seats filling as soon as they were
vacated. The table area where we sat was about half full and was
close to full capacity by the time we left about an hour later.
As soon as we sat down both my husband and I locked eyes on the
Chef’s featured Burger & Beer and we were sold. We ordered the
Salmon Burger which was ground Atlantic salmon, lemon-caper-dill
aioli, heirloom tomato, petite sprouts, and pickled red onion on a
sesame bun. It was served with garlic fries and the featured beer,
Stone Levitation Ale. Yum, yum, yum to everything! We cleaned our
plates and agreed it was one of the best meals we had enjoyed during
our weeklong visit.
Although we didn’t do more than browse the rest of the menu I could
see that there were a lot of choices I would probably enjoy. There
were several sandwich and salad options along with some chicken,
beef, and fish entrees. Lots of sides and appetizers (what they call
share plates). There is a full bar which includes a decent variety
of California drafts and bottled craft beers and wine by the glass
Our server was attentive and food service, coming from the kitchens
of Catal Restaurant across the way, was fast. Everyone around us
seemed to be having a good time. I am definitely going back and hope
you give it a try when you visit the Disneyland Resort.

Remembering Roy E. Disney:
Memories and Photos of a Storied Life (Disney Editions, 2013, 209
pages) by David A. Bossert is a well-written, enjoyable read
primarily about Bossert’s and other’s experiences with Roy E.
Disney. Bossert presents an interesting and captivating look at the
man behind the name.
Through the stories and memories, I gained a lot of perspective on
why Roy E. Disney did the things he did. I knew he was an avid
sailor but had no idea he owned a 737! Although he had a lot of
money, the author paints a picture of a man who was as comfortable
in the Costco food court as he was in the board room.
This is a must-read for all Disney fans.
