Where to Eat When Disneyland Resort Reopens

Chicken Salad bowl at La Brea - sadly, not open yet

For our crew, dining at Disney parks has been an important and fun part of the whole Disney experience.  We share tips on our favorite places to eat, favorite snacks, and we try all of the venues.  Since Disneyland is reopening soon, for California residents, I thought I’d sort thru all of the information Disney has given us on dining options and boil it down into a simple, more digestable 🙂 form.  So, here are some lists of the eateries that will be open at the reopening of DLR, and where they’re located.  I’ll start with places to eat in the parks, including food carts, and finish off with hotel dining and Downtown Disney.

A couple of notes – character dining is not available at the time of this writing, either at the hotels or at the park, but this will change.  Also, there is no World of Color or Fantasmic dining since those shows are on hiatus.  One caveat is that the Disneyland website shows the restaurants at the Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel as being open but the hotels are closed.  Finally, be aware that many of the counter service windows for the restaurants in Downtown Disney are closed even if the restaurants are open – see below for details.
