There are many changes expected when Disney World reopens it’s gates after having them closed for months due to COVID-19. For a full report on the many changes and expectations on guests when visiting, check out my previous post by clicking here. To keep guests and cast members safe, there are quite a few restaurants that will not be reopening, for the time being. As of right now, the only restaurants officially reported as staying closed are resort restaurants. Take a look at the list of restaurants that will remain closed until further notice:
Narcossee’s. Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Citrico’s. Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Flying Fish Cafe. Boardwalk Inn & Villas.
Storybook Dining at Artist Point. Wilderness Lodge.
Yachtman’s Steakhouse. Yacht Club Resort.
‘Ohana. Polynesian Village Resort.
Boma – Flavors of Africa. Animal Kingdom Lodge.
Jiko Cooking Place. Animal Kingdom Lodge.
Chef Mickey’s. Contemporary Resort.
California Grill. Contemporary Resort.
Trail’s End. Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.
All of the restaurants listed are Signature restaurants and buffet style restaurants. With no exception. I think we can use this announcement as a preview for which restaurants will remain closed at the parks. Here’s which restaurants I expect them to announce will remain closed at the theme parks.
Crystal Palace. Magic Kingdom.
Cinderella’s Royal Table. Magic Kingdom.
Be Our Guest. Magic Kingdom.
Garden Grill. Epcot.
Le Cellier. Epcot.
Monsieur Paul. Epcot.
Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Epcot.
Hollywood & Vine. Hollywood Studios.
The Hollywood Brown Derby. Hollywood Studios.
Tusker House. Animal Kingdom.
Tiffins Restaurant. Animal Kingdom.
The restaurants that are listed are signature restaurants and buffet style restaurants. I think these won’t remain closed forever but as long as restrictions remain in place. It certainly limits what is available to choose from. And the amount of people allowed into the restaurants that ARE open will likely be limited. So if you are planning to head to Disney World in the coming months, it will be more important than ever to have your restaurant wish list prepared. And be ready to make reservations 60 days before. Happy Planning, Friends.
