Earlier this week we reported that Orange County has advanced from the purple tier to the less restrictive red-tier. The red tier allows for restaurants to open indoor dining at 25% capacity.
Now it’s been confirmed through the Downtown Disney website that indoor dining will now reopen at a limited capacity! The Downtown Disney Dining section of the website now reads:
Dining locations at the Downtown Disney District have begun to reopen in a way that incorporates our enhanced health and safety measures, including physical distancing, the use of appropriate face coverings by Operating Participant employees, Cast Members and Guests, increased cleaning procedures and limited-contact Guest services. Additionally, at this time, following state and county guidelines, limited indoor seating will be permitted; all other seating is outdoor patio only.
To promote physical distancing and touchless transactions, a number of changes have been made to our dining locations, including:
- Increased outdoor patio-style seating
- Parties seated at tables 6 feet apart
- Digital or single-use menus available at many locations
The full list of Downtown Disney District restaurants that could potentially offer indoor seating are:
Ballast Point Brewing Co.
Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes
La Brea Bakery Cafe
Naples Ristorante e Bar
Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen
Please note that if you have a dining reservation (which we highly recommend!) for the day and arrive at the Simba Parking Lot or the Downtown Disney District when entry is paused, please speak with a Cast Member and present proof of the day’s dining reservation for assistance. You will want to allow for plenty of extra time to be able to arrive at the restaurant in time for your reservation, especially during the lunch period, dinner period and all weekend long (Friday – Sunday).
