Mark your calendars — Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will reopen to guests on April 30th, 2021! Over a year after the park closures began, we’ll finally be able to once again ride our favorite rides, wave to our favorite characters, and eat our favorite dishes!
In addition to all of the Dole Whip and Corn Dogs we’re going to eat when the parks reopen, we’re also looking forward to revisiting some of our favorite restaurants!
Originally, Disney only specifically mentioned a small handful of restaurants in each park that will reopen. In fact, there were only two restaurants reportedly announced to reopen. However, on April 16th, Disney announced MANY more restaurants which will reopen on April 30th along with the parks, so you will find the fully updated list below!
Please bear in mind that Disney notes that “Some restaurants, dining experiences, and offerings may be modified, limited in capacity and subject to availability or closure.” Also note that as Orange County is in the Orange Tier (per California state guidelines), indoor capacity for restaurants must be capped at 25% with time restrictions in place.
