As things keep moving forward in a positive way, we are seeing some of our favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland California begin to reopen. I know that I am excited for the ones at Walt Disney World and hope that this progress keeps going. Because I am a Walt Disney World guy, we will start with those on our coast first.
Walt Disney World
Sebastian’s Bistro at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort (Opening June 24 with nightly walk-in availability through July 4; bookings available June 10 for reservations starting July 5)
Disney Skyliner conveniently stops at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, making it an easy (and fun!) trip to dine at Sebastian’s Bistro, which will reopen with delicious tastes of the Caribbean and a new family-style meal at dinner.
Sebastian’s signature buttery house-baked pull-apart rolls will get you started (YUM), and the entire table will enjoy the Taste of the Caribbean platter featuring oven-roasted citrus chicken, slow-cooked mojo pork with mango sambal, and grilled flank steak with mojito relish. This hearty platter comes with sides of cilantro rice and beans, vegetable curry, and grilled broccolini. Coconut shrimp can also be ordered as an add-on to your meal. The best part? You finish with the ultimate sweet treat – the popular coconut-pineapple bread pudding!
Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort (Opening July 9; bookings available June 10)
This is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants and so glad to see that it is reopening. Was also surprised to see that they are doing some tweaking to the menu as well. Of course, we will be thrilled when Trader Sam’s opens but we know that will be a little bit longer down the road but still hopeful it will be coming soon.
With the backdrop of tropical greenery, ‘Ohana will again offer their fabulous all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast and dinner offerings when they reopen. Although Disney characters will not be hosting breakfast, a strolling musician will entertain guests for dinner.
For breakfast, start with pineapple-coconut breakfast bread, move on to Stitch and Mickey Mouse waffles, then dig into “eggs”cellent breakfast skillets with ham, sausage, and breakfast potatoes.
The ‘Ohana dinner features all-you-care-to-enjoy platters of grilled beef steak, roasted chicken, sausage, and island shrimp casserole served with fried rice and roasted broccolini. And yes, ‘Ohana pot stickers, crispy soy chicken wings, and the signature ‘Ohana bread pudding served warm with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream are back! Yippee!
Tusker House Restaurant, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park (Opening June 20; bookings now available)
A fan favorite at Animal Kingdom for sure and one of the few spots that have character dining again. Donald Duck and his Disney friends are welcoming you back to this lively Harambe marketplace. Graze on a bountiful family-style menu brimming with African-inspired flavors while you dine and snap photos of your favorite Disney characters. For breakfast, start your adventure with Mickey and Simba waffles, Durban chicken and egg curry with jasmine rice, and much more. Lunch and dinner offerings include Moroccan-spiced beef, Berber-marinated pork, spit-roasted herb chicken, and Cape Malay green curry shrimp.
Here are additional quick-service locations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park now open:
- Terra Treats (serving pizza slices)
- Isle of Java (serving fresh-brewed espresso, cappuccino, and sweet treats)
- Trilo-Bites (serving DOLE Whip orange)
- Drinkwallah Snacks & Frozen Beverages
BoardWalk Ice Cream Shop, Disney’s BoardWalk
Craving a frozen sweet treat? Take a stroll around Crescent Lake on Disney’s BoardWalk and visit BoardWalk Ice Cream Shop. Featuring scoops and sundaes to go, satisfy your craving with a good old-fashioned sundae plus brownie and strawberry splash shortcake a la modes, and of course, the kid-favorite, Mickey Mouse Sundaes!
