California recently enforced a new mandate that requires indoor dining locations to close in 19 counties, including Orange County, where Disneyland Resort is located. Although Disney recently announced that the reopening of Disneyland’s theme parks would be delayed, Downtown Disney remains on track to reopen on July 9th. This led us to wonder which Downtown Disney restaurants would still be reopening in light of the mandate.
Restaurants with outdoor seating and patios still have the option to open for outdoor dining, and today we confirmed TWO Downtown Disney restaurants that are DEFINITELY reopening along with the various merchandise and shopping locations!
Uva Bar and the newly remodeled Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria will both reopen to the public this Thursday! Hours of operation are from 11AM to 8PM and, similar to the restaurants in Walt Disney World, there will be limited menus for both locations.
Naples recently got a huge overhaul with major improvements to their indoor seating. In addition to modernizing the indoor restaurant, they also added a big outdoor patio and show bar. The is one of our favorite places to grab a slice — or a whole pie — after a long day in the parks or shopping at World of Disney!
Uva Bar is an entirely outdoor restaurant so it’s not too surprising that they will be reopening as well. It’s a great place to people-watch while you sip a cocktail! Uva is located right outside Catal Restaurant. While Catal has some outdoor seating, the restaurant hasn’t yet confirmed when they will be reopening.
We’re hoping there will be quite a few more restaurants also reopening at Downtown Disney and we’ll be sure to update you as we learn more!
