BREAKING NEWS: These Disney World Restaurants Will Be OPEN Starting June 22nd!

Big news, everybody! We now know MORE about the return of our beloved Disney World restaurants!

Beaches and Cream

Disney World theme parks are set to begin a phased reopening on July 11th, but at the end of this month, signs of guest life will begin returning to Disney World. Disney Vacation Club Resorts and Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will reopen on June 22nd. Now, Disney has released the list of ALL of the RESTAURANTS that will be opening that day!

Many dining experiences will be unavailable and the ones that are open will be modified with new health measures. Here’s everything that’s opening on June 22nd!

Disney’s Contemporary Resort

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Contemporary Resort include:

The Wave…of American Flavors Entrance

We can’t wait to get back to those yummy cupcakes at Contempo Café, but we can’t say we’re not a little bummed that California Grill won’t be reopening at first!

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge include:

Whispering Canyon Cafe

Many of our favorite options are reopening at Wilderness Lodge! It will be nice to watch the sunset from Geyser Point Bar & Grill once more.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge include:

Animal Kingdom Lodge

If you know us, you know we love Sanaa. Butter Chicken, here we come!

Disney’s Beach Club Resort

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Beach Club Resort include:

No Way Jose

Beaches and Cream Soda Shop just reopened from renovation a couple months prior to the closure, so returning guests will get to enjoy the newly-updated space.

Disney’s BoardWalk Inn

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s BoardWalk Inn include:

Disney’s BoardWalk

Keep in mind that most Character Dining options will not be returning when the parks reopen. So don’t expect to hang with Rapunzel and Flynn Rider at Trattoria al Forno’s Bon Voyage Breakfast.

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground include:

Welcome to Fort Wilderness!

You’ll notice that many buffet options, like Trail’s End Restaurant, will remain closed for the time being.

Disney’s Old Key West Resort

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Old Key West Resort include:

Olivia’s Cafe

Oh yeah, Key Lime Pie, we’re coming for you!

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort include:

Polynesian Lava You

We had our fingers crossed for ‘Ohana since the meals are served family-style, but it looks like no dice! And, you can go ahead and scratch out the time you had planned to stand in line for Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. At least we can soothe our woes with some Dole Whip concoctions.

Disney’s Riviera Resort

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Riviera Resort include:

Disney’s Riviera Resort

Here’s a win: ALL of the dining options at the new Riviera Resort will be reopening! Topolino’s Terrace will even have their character dining — just with some changes.

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort include:

Beef and Egg Thin Crust Pie

You may not be sitting down at Turf Club Bar & Grill at Saratoga Springs, but you’ll still have your fair share of dining options.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

The reopening restaurants in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort include:

The Library at Enchanted Rose

Of course, we’re excited to see that many of the dining locations are open at Grand Floridian, but it definitely makes us sad that none of the fancy table-service restaurants are opening. That means no 1900 Park Fare, no Narcoossee’s, no Citricos, and no Victoria & Albert’s initially.

There you have it! That’s all of the reopening options coming back to Disney World before the end of the month. As of right now, reservations aren’t open for these spots, but we’ll be sure to update when they are. We’ll keep an eye out for any changes to the list, too!
