And while many meals that were formerly served as buffets in the Disney parks have been converted to family-style meals, Storytellers Cafe is actually serving up a BUFFET! While that buffet contains a bunch of options you’re used to seeing — Mickey waffles, bacon, etc. — it’s also got some drinks served in a unique way!
Lots of things have changed at Disney World and Disneyland over the past several months.
One of the big things we’ve seen particularly in Disney World is that generally all of the restaurants that used to offer buffet-style meals have been converted to family-style meals, prix fixe menus, or a la carte dining. But, when Storytellers Cafe at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at Disneyland Resort started offering its character dining breakfast/brunch again today we experienced something different.
We’ve seen quite a few reopening announcements at Disneyland Resort recently.
It seems like everything from rides to restaurants to resorts are getting reopening dates, and we’re very excited to check it all out. Recently, it was announced that character meals are coming back to the resort, and today you can make reservations for one of those meals!
It’s another exciting day over on the west coast!
We were able to go back into Disneyland for the first time in over a YEAR yesterday, ahead of its official reopening tomorrow (and spoiler: it was AMAZING). Things are slowly opening up around property, and today is a big day over at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. That’s right: this resort is officially BACK open!
Last month, it was announced that the Villas at the Grand Californian Hotel in Disneyland Resort were set to reopen on December 6th.
During the initial plans for reopening, Disney Vacation Club Members were to be able to book stays in the Villas, while the other areas of the hotel were set to remain closed.
The Disneyland Resort theme parks are still unable to reopen at the moment, but Downtown Disney is soon set to expand into Buena Visa Street in Disney’s California Adventure Park and the Disney Backlot Premiere Store (technically located within California Adventure) also recently reopened.
But, now we’ve got even BIGGER news! If you’re a hoping to visit Disneyland Resort at some point in the future for some shopping and dining and want to stay at one of its resort hotels — you will soon be able to!
It’s been several months since we’ve made our way past these gates, down Main Street, U.S.A., and over to Indiana Jones Adventure in Disneyland Park.
Although we’ve seen some changes that indicate we’re closer to Disneyland reopening, no official reopening date has been announced yet. We’ve been keeping an eye on the Disneyland Resort Hotels as well to see when guests can begin booking reservations there. Today, we spotted an update regarding hotel availability…looks like we may not be able to make new reservations at any of the Disneyland Resort Hotels for a little while longer.
Disneyland has officially proposed its reopening plans for its theme parks, Downtown Disney, and some of its hotels just in time for the resort’s 65th anniversary.
There’s a LOT to unpack of the reopening, but fortunately, Disneyland seems to have our backs.
