Disney Releases List of Dining Locations Available When Florida Parks Reopen

June 24, 2020

We are just two and a half weeks away from the opening of Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11, and Epcot and Hollywood Studios on July 15. Many Disney Springs restaurants, as well as a number of Resort restaurants, are already open, with guests beginning to arrive at select Resorts on June 22.

In order to dine at one of the sit-down (table service) restaurants in the parks, you’ll need a confirmed dining reservation, as well as a valid park admission and a reservation for park entry.

Here are a few specific points from Disney that you also need to be aware of: 

• Menu items may vary.  For specific menu information, check the restaurant’s online menu when the restaurant reopens.
• Character Dining will not be offered during the initial reopening, with the exception of a modified Character Dining experience at Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera.
• Dinner shows will not be offered during the initial reopening.
• Dining locations will be limited in capacity. Some locations will remain temporarily closed.
• Mobile order service will be offered at select quick-service dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks (when open), Disney Springs and select Disney Resort hotels.
• Guests should also be aware that you’ll need face coverings for each Guest age 2 and up, which must be worn in all public areas—including while entering and exiting dining locations—and can be removed while eating or drinking.
• Reduced-Contact Menus: Menus will be shared in ways to minimize contact. At quick-service restaurants, menus will be displayed on signage. And at table-service restaurants, you can scan a code with your mobile device to access the digital menu.
• Self-Serve Changes: Beverages and other items that were previously self-serve will instead be served by Cast Members.
• Cashless Payments: At this time, it is recommended all Guests use cashless payment options, including debit cards, credit cards and Disney Gift Cards. Guests can also opt for contactless payment options—such as mobile wallets—or use cash to purchase a Disney Gift Card at Guest Relations and select merchandise locations. Disney Resort hotel Guests can also use MagicBands to charge their purchase to their Disney Resort hotel folio.

When the theme parks initially reopen, the following dining locations will reopen. According to Disney, additional carts and kiosks may also be available during your visit.

Magic Kingdom Park — Reopening July 11

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park — Reopening July 11

Disney’s Hollywood Studios — Reopening July 15
