Already got plans in place for a long-overdue trip to Disneyland? Restaurants are reopening quickly and safely, and dozens of eateries are ready to take your order once again!

The following restaurants are all open as of May 10. Restaurants in bold and italics accept mobile ordering through the Disneyland app.

Disneyland Park

You’ve been craving a Bibbidi Bobbidi Bite of those hot and fresh cinnamon rolls from Jolly Holiday Bakery Café for a long, long, long time. Now’s the time to get your spoonful (and then some) of sugar.

Jolly Holiday Bakery Café is one of the top restaurants that’s reopened in Disneyland, alongside crowd-pleasers like Galactic Grill, Ronto Roasters, and The Tropical Hideaway.

In addition to the restaurants below, you’ll find several carts open around the park. They’ll be serving up staples like popcorn, churros, and ice-cold drinks.

Disney California Adventure Park

Get your motor running at Flo’s V8 Café, relax at the Hollywood Lounge, or crush a couple corn dogs at Award Wieners. Whichever of the almost two dozen reopened restaurants you visit around Disney California Adventure, it’ll feel like catching up with an old friend.

2021 marks two decades of awesomeness at Disney California Adventure, so get in on the celebrating with some great eats. Be on the look out for carts around the park slinging all your popcorn, snacks, and more.

If you’re looking to visit Alfresco Tasting Terrance, it’s currently only open for Legacy Passholders and guests.

Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

Guests staying at the Grand California Hotel & Spa from now through May 27 have exclusive access to this pair of great eateries. From May 28, both restaurants will open to every guest of the resort.
