After California Governor Gavin Newsom enacted a temporary stay-at-home order throughout the Southern California region, Disneyland Resort banned onsite dining, prompting many businesses at Downtown Disney and, by extension, Buena Vista Street inside Disney California Adventure to close temporarily.
Now that the stay-at-home order has ended, more and more businesses are reopening at Downtown Disney, including Starbucks.
Theme park reporter Paul (@paulsthemeparkadventures) took to Instagram to share the news that Starbucks at Downtown Disney will be reopening on Monday, February 15. Take a look:
Starbucks in Downtown Disney has a reopening date finally! Its reopening Monday 2/15/21
Keep in mind that there are two Starbucks locations at Downtown Disney, though both have been temporarily closed for some time. According to Paul, the Starbucks location that is opening on Monday is the store closest to World of Disney, the largest Disney gift shop at the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort.
Also, note that at this time, the Starbucks location inside Disney California Adventure Park — known as the Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café — has not yet reopened. There is still no word on when this DCA dining location will reopen, but we will report back when we know more information. For now, the official website for the Disneyland Resort still says this location is temporarily unavailable.
We don’t know about you, but we think it’s great news that Starbucks is reopening at Downtown Disney so Guests can get their magical coffee fix once again. We shared this Instagram photo of our Starbucks drinks from Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café on the reopening day of Buena Vista Street last November.
As a reminder, the theme parks of the Disneyland Resort — Disneyland and Disney California Adventure — and the hotels of the Disneyland Resort — the Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa — are not open at this time. The Downtown Disney District and Buena Vista Street inside DCA are open for shopping and dining only.
We do have some things to look forward to, however. New benefits have been announced for former Disneyland Annual Passholders (now Legacy Passholders), which you can read about here. There is a new Star Wars store (the Star Wars Trading Post) opening next week, and a WandaVision photo spot has opened in DCA. Additionally, Disney has just announced that a limtied-time ticketed event will debut this March at Disney California Adventure Park — more information here!
