REMINDER: SOFT OPENING THE DISNEYLAND DINING DATABASE!

Some time ago, we introduced the AllEars.Net Dining Database, a comprehensive dining database that compiled all the information you need about Walt Disney World dining at your fingertips.

We have now expanded that database to include the Disneyland Resort!

We've pulled together all the information we have about almost every Disneyland Resort dining location -- location descriptions, discount info, menus, restaurant and food photos, videos -- all into one place.

Here are the two main links you'll need to start navigating your way around this database for Disneyland Resort dining:

Disneyland Dining Location Index
http://allears.net/dlr/dining/location/

Menu Index
http://allears.net/dlr/dining/menus/

Please update your bookmarks accordingly.

As we are still in "soft open" mode for this section of the database, we are still adding some photos and information. Please let us know if you find anything that's not working the way you think it ought to. And as always, we welcome your feedback. Drop us a note using our feedback form HERE.

Thanks in advance for all your help and your continued support!
