Now, what do people look forward to the most when they come to Disney? (Well, besides the food.) The rides, of course! What’s Disney World without Space Mountain, Tower of Terror, and Pirates of the Caribbean? It’s a huge, empty land filled only with Mickey Pretzels and churros. Actually, that doesn’t sound too bad. 😉 Nevertheless, we checked out a few of the most popular attractions at all four parks and are reporting back on ALL the updates. [Read more…]

News regarding the reopening of Downtown Disney in Disneyland Resort has been slowly trickling in. There has been some speculation and confirmations of what businesses will be available to the public on July 9th.
Some restaurants had to adjust given the recent California mandate that required indoor dining at restaurants and bars to close. We confirmed that Naples Ristorante e Bar and Uva Bar will reopen with outdoor seating and limited menus.

California recently enforced a new mandate that requires indoor dining locations to close in 19 counties, including Orange County, where Disneyland Resort is located. Although Disney recently announced that the reopening of Disneyland’s theme parks would be delayed, Downtown Disney remains on track to reopen on July 9th.

Restaurants with outdoor seating and patios still have the option to open for outdoor dining, and today we confirmed TWO Downtown Disney restaurants that are DEFINITELY reopening along with the various merchandise and shopping locations!
