Well it does indeed look like Disneyland is going to take another hit. Recently they added Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure, to their open shopping and dining area and now Disneyland will have to shut down the restaurants that don’t allow take-out at both areas due to a new stay-at-home order.

According to the OC Register the restaurants without take out options will close starting on December 7th. The retail locations will still remain open at reduced capacity.

Sadly, this reduction of open restaurants will cause 350 Cast Members to go back on furlough.

Here is what will be closed and what will stay open:



  • Carthay Circle Lounge (existing reservations will be cancelled and there will be no fee)
  • Award Wieners
  • Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe

Open (Food must be eaten off site)

Trolley Treats

Downtown Disney District

Likely to close:

  • Ballast Point Brewery
  • Catal
  • Splitzville


Marceline’s Confectionary

Could remain open:

  • Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen
  • Tortilla Jo’s
  • Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer

Will likely remain open but food must be consumed outside Downtown Disney

  • Wetzel’s Pretzels
  • Jamba
  • Salt & Straw
  • Starbucks
  • Sprinkles Bakery
  • Earl of Sandwich.

This is going to be a hit to Disneyland and all the Cast Members who will not again be furloughed. Right before the holidays.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 2017-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids!
