A lot has been changing at Disneyland Resort lately!
We’ve seen the opening of Avengers Campus, the return of fireworks, and the reopening of fan-favorite restaurants! One of the restaurants scheduled to open soon is Carthay Circle, which you can dine at on July 22nd. However, your meal will look very different!
Carthay Circle, located on Buena Vista Street inside Disney’s California Adventure, and its lounge opened in 2020 for Carthay Circle Lounge Alfresco Dining. But now the actual restaurant is reopening! And, it will have an almost entirely new menu!
Beginning with starters, everything listed is a new item since before the closures. There are Warm Cheddar Parkerhouse Rolls for $14 instead of the Signature Fried Biscuits that used to be on the menu, along with other fun new items like a Chicken “Arepa” for $18 and Artichoke-Parmesan Fritters for $17!
Moving on to Entrees, we only really have one returning menu item from the pre-closure menu — the Niman Ranch Pork Chop for $48, but it’s being served with a Blackberry-Orange Vinaigrette rather than the former Brown Butter Vinaigrette. There is still Sustainable Fish on the menu, but now it’s whole grilled for $51. If you’re looking for steak, there’s a 20 oz Grilled New York steak for $75 instead of the former Pan-Roasted Filet Mignon for $54.
If you want something sweet, you have two new options — a Valrhona Chocolate Cream Puff for $15 and a Warm Apricot Butter Cake for $15.
The kids menu has one returning item — the Orcchiette for $12. But now, it’s served with marinara, whereas before you could choose between marinara, butter, or Alfredo sauce. There’s also a Cheese Quesadilla for $12 and Orange Dragon Chicken Skewers for $12.
Kids also have one dessert they can get (which is new) — the Hazelnut Crunch Mickey Pop for $10.
As for the non-alcohol drink menu, nothing has changed! You can still get things like the Wildberry Lemonade for $6.50, Twin Bill for $6, or Carthay’s Signature Blend Press Pot Coffee for $8.
And for alcoholic beverages, those haven’t changed either! They’re just as they were before the closures, but here’s a refresher of the options available:
As for the After Dinner Drinks and Dessert Wines, everything has also remained the same as before. Get your Irish coffee for $13.50 or sip on a Brandy Alexander for $13.25.
And here’s a look at the current offerings for the Disney Family of Wines.
That’s the entire new menu at Carthay Circle in Disney’s California Adventure! Reservations for this dining location were supposed to release today, but we haven’t spotted any yet! We’ll be checking out the new eats as soon as the restaurant opens, so stay tuned to DFB for a full review!
