Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will return without more than 30 of their 70+ food and beverage locations when the Anaheim theme parks reopen later this month after a yearlong coronavirus closure.
Disneyland and DCA will keep dozens of eateries shuttered as part of the phased reopening of the parks due state-mandated attendance capacity constraints and Disney’s commitment to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.
“We’re bringing back the magic at places like Lamplight Lounge, Sonoma Terrace, Cozy Cone Motel, Ronto Roasters, River Belle Terrace, Plaza Inn and Tropical Hideaway,” Disneyland resort food and beverage director Michele Gendreau said in a statement. “If our guests want a snack, like corn dogs, churros and our theme park popcorn, those will be available at carts throughout the parks.”
Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will reopen on April 30 after more than a year of coronavirus closures mandated by COVID-19 health and safety guidelines issued by the state.
Closed dining locations at Disneyland and DCA are expected to reopen in the coming weeks and months as COVID-19 attendance capacity limits are eased and California businesses fully reopen.
There will be plenty of places to grab a bite or quench your thirst when Disneyland and Disney California Adventure return on April 30. More than 40 restaurants, food and beverage stands and outdoor vending carts will return when the Anaheim theme parks reopen.
At Disneyland, you’ll still be able to get a corn dog at the Little Red Wagon, a Monte Cristo sandwich at Cafe Orleans, Mickey beignets at the Mint Julep Bar, fried chicken at the Plaza Inn, bacon-wrapped asparagus skewers at Bengal Barbecue and Pommes Frites at Cafe Orleans.
The Tiki Juice Bar will be closed, but you’ll still be able to grab a Dole Whip a few steps away at the Tropical Hideaway in Adventureland.
Over at DCA, you’ll still find lobster nachos at the Lamplight Lounge and Chili Cone Queso at the Cozy Cone Motel.
Carthay Circle will be open for alfresco dining, but indoor seating won’t return to the DCA fine dining restaurant until a later date.
“Many of our dining locations will be ready for guests on reopening day and we look forward to opening them all as soon as possible,” Gendreau said in a statement.
Plenty of places will be closed during the phased reopening of the park beginning on April 30.
At Disneyland, you won’t be able to get a Bavarian pretzel at the Troubadour Tavern, turkey legs at Edelweiss Snacks, nachos at Rancho del Zocalo or fried pickles at the Carnation Cafe.
The Blue Bayou will serve beer, sparkling wine and Hurricane cocktails when the New Orleans Square restaurant returns — but that won’t be until sometime after Disneyland reopens on April 30.
Over at DCA, your cravings for Jack-Jack’s Cookie Num Nums and hand-dipped ice cream bars at Clarabelle’s will be put on hold until a later date.
Intrepid interstellar travelers heading to Galaxy’s Edge might want to eat before stepping foot in the new Star Wars land. You better like Blue Milk and Ronto Roasters because you won’t find much else to drink and eat in Black Spire Outpost on the Star Wars planet of Batuu.
Galaxy’s Edge will be hit hard by the food and beverage closures with Oga’s Cantina cocktail bar, Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo restaurant and Kat Saka’s Kettle popcorn stand shuttered until further notice.
