PHOTOS: Restaurants Shuttered at Downtown Disney District Due to California COVID-19 Stay-at-Home Order, Select Locations Remain Open Strictly for Take-Out
With ICU capacity dipping below 15% in Southern California, a stay-at-home order is now in place across Orange County and Anaheim. With this new order, all dining must revert back to take-out and delivery. As of today, Disneyland Resort has now closed all restaurants at both Downtown Disney District and its recently-opened Buena Vista Street expansion.
A sign at the entrance of Downtown Disney District reminds guests that eating and drinking is prohibited on Disneyland Resort property. Do note that the $10 parking fee still applies despite the various closures.
With most restaurants temporarily closing, 350 Cast Members have returned to furlough because of this reduction.
Some Downtown Disney District restaurants can still fulfill carry-out orders, but they cannot be consumed on-property. Marceline’s Confectionery and Wetzel’s Pretzels were both open for carry-out.
If you get ice cream from Salt & Straw, you’ll need to exit Disneyland Resort property and hope it doesn’t melt!
Despite previously set-up outdoor seating, many restaurants have now closed, including Catal, Splitsville Luxury Lanes, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, and Tortilla Jo’s.
Snack and beverage kiosks are open, but guests must still leave before eating and drinking.
Both Starbucks locations at Downtown Disney District, as well as Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe at Buena Vista Street are now closed.
