Beach Side Bonfire Buffet debuts at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel in Disneyland Resort

In the midst of summer, Disneyland Resort has conjured up a beach party of sorts at the Paradise Pier Hotel. Over at Disney’s PCH Grill, you can indulge in a bevy of buffet items with their new Beach Side Bonfire Buffet Dinner option.

The inspiration for this new offering comes from the many gatherings that take place at beautiful beaches along the Pacific Coast Highway (or as we native Californians call it, “PCH”). Bring your appetite, the variety of food at this buffet will have you loosening up the string of your bathing suit.
