Rancho del Zocalo is a really beautiful, and often quiet, place to escape to.  Even with all its romantic charm, it is rarely busy or cramped.  The flowers that surround the restaurant are breathtaking, and the many lights that hang, captivating.  Late one weekday night, we happened upon the Mexican eatery, completely empty.  It’s surreal almost anytime you see something at Disneyland vacant, but this was different.  The way the lights danced across the rustic exterior and  the rugged wood ceiling, and the way the flowers gently crept into their soft glow was mesmerizing.  It was another one of those “Disney” moments.  I don’t know that I had ever really noticed just how beautiful Rancho del Zocalo was before that night.  Now, it is one of those places I walk by, every time I visit the park.
