Here’s What Restaurants Will Be Closed at Walt Disney World Theme Parks

Yesterday, Walt Disney World released a list of what restaurants will be open–and although there’s a huge list of dining places that will be open when the parks resume operation, there are also quite a few locations that won’t be open. Here’s a list that, as of the morning of June 23, shows what Disney is not planning to reopen when the parks open next month.

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom takes some pretty noticeable hits on its closed list.

  • Aunt Polly’s on Tom Sawyer Island (this location is often only open seasonally)
  • Casey’s Corner
  • Cheshire Cafe
  • Cinderella’s Royal Table
  • Columbia Harbour House
  • Cool Ship (in Tomorrowland)
  • The Crystal Palace
  • The Diamond Horseshoe
  • The Friar’s Nook
  • Gaston’s Tavern
  • Golden Oak Outpost
  • The Lunching Pad
  • Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
  • Prince Eric’s Village Market
  • Tomorrowland Terrace (another one that usually only operates seasonally)
  • Tortuga Tavern (one more seasonal location)
  • Westward Ho


Naturally, all of the closures are in World Showcase, with some locations possibly closed due to the lack of international staff at this time.

Many of the restaurants closed are smaller kiosks, but there are a couple notable closures. Here’s the list of what will be closed.

  • Caravan Road
