Disneyland has hit a minor setback as they continue to attempt a safe phased reopening.
Today, following the news of California Governor Gavin Newsom’s three-week stay-at-home order for Southern California, Disneyland has informed Guests with dining reservations at Carthay Circle that their reservations have been canceled.
We reported that Disneyland would see major changes to its available dining due to new regulations set by the California state government. All dining locations that do not offer takeout will be closed — which means that restaurants on Buena Vista Street like Carthay Circle are unable to accommodate Guests at this time.
Disney is in an ongoing uphill battle to reopen Disneyland Resort, which is the only Disney Park that has not reopened at least once during the pandemic.
Other Disney resorts and theme parks are also facing adversity as COVID-19 cases continue to grow globally. Disneyland Pairs has re-closed and will not reopen until next year.
Hong Kong Disneyland has also been shut down once again. This marks the third time Hong Kong Disneyland has closed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Disneyland only had this to say about the recent changes to their dining:
While the Downtown Disney District has begun a phased reopening, beginning Dec. 7, restaurants and dining locations that do not offer take-out will close. At that time, Guests will not be permitted to open or consume any food or beverage items on property, and food and beverage items purchased at the Downtown Disney District must be taken to-go, for consumption off property only. Retail locations will remain open with enhanced health and safety measures in place.
We will continue to monitor and report on this situation.
