When Disneyland finally reopened its gates after a historic closure, not everything opened up with it. Some restaurants remained closed and Guests had to find alternate dining locations. One of those locations was the popular Main Street, U.S.A. eatery, Carnation Café. However, in early August, the restaurant announced that it would be opening again on September 16.
Now the dining spot is taking another giant step forward and accepting dining reservations for its much-anticipated reopening. Reservations opened this morning and while the restaurant will be opening on September 16, bookings are all full until October 1.
Carnation Café has always been very popular amongst Guests who love to sit in a place that transports them back to a time when they can picture Walt Disney strolling down the street and waving at them. Carnation Café also features a number of stick-to-your-ribs that help drive home that true sense of Americana — including Walt’s Famous Chili, Buttermilk Pancakes, and Baked Potato Soup.
For Guests who dine at Carnation Café during Halloween Time, the restaurant is also offering a Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich. Here is some more information on the delicious spot from the Disneyland website:
Begin your day right with some of the chef’s specialties: buttermilk pancakes, Mickey-shaped waffles, plant-based overnight oats parfait or a breakfast skillet with Mickey-shaped, 3-cheese egg bites. It’s the perfect way to kick off the day!
For lunch, start with a helping of delicious Parmesan-and-panko-coated fried pickles. Honor Walt’s memory with an order of Walt’s Chili or other favorites like braised short rib or a parmesan-toasted patty melt.
On the lighter side there’s the refreshing chopped chicken salad, sustainable catch of the day and the chef’s plant-based burger. Before you leave, don’t miss the delectable selection of house-made desserts!
For right now, Carnation Café will only operate for limited hours and will be open daily from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. While reservations are not required to dine at Carnation Café, they are highly recommended. Guests without reservations can walk up to the restaurant to see if there is any availability, but there is no guarantee that they will.
