If you have been to Disney’s Contemporary Resort over the past few weeks, you have surely seen that level one, which typically houses both check-in, bell services, and entry to The Wave, has been under construction.

The lobby area is flooded with construction walls, and there really is not much to be done except walk through the tiny passageways, which will take Guests outside to the Park busses and Magic Kingdom walkway. While the lobby area is being reimagined, we recently learned that we have now officially said goodbye to The Wave for the last time.

Steakhouse 71, which many Disney fans may recognize from Disneyland Resort’s now closed Steakhouse 55, will be taking its place opening on October 1 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The menu has already arrived, which you can check out here. Now, reservations are finally available! If you want to dine at Steakhouse 71, all you have to do is make a reservation on your My Disney Experience app, but do it soon!

Reservations for Steakhouse 71 are already gone from October 1-3, with October 4 being the first at the time of this article publishing to have an available slot. We also tried to book a reservation a few weeks after opening in November, which worked out just fine! It seems if Guests are looking to book the dining location within the first few weeks of its opening, they should act fast. This will likely be a popular dining location that will typically fill up in reservations.

Hopefully, Steakhouse 71 keeps a similar layout to The Wave and keeps the bar area, which would be first come, first served for Guests who are not looking to plan their dining weeks.

Will you be dining at Steakhouse 71 once it opens?
