  • Restaurant availability and protocols starting 4/30

    So Im sure all of you noticed that decided to get theme park tix, that Restaurant availability is pretty slim to none. SO whats the deal here...is there really no restaurant reservations for the times I will be in the parks? And do you guys think both parks will open up more options before or after the 30th? And do they plan on utilizing the same horrible protocols with Mobile Ordering throughout the parks (as I did that for Touch of Disney) and it was awful experience! Thanks everyone!

        A quote from one of the readers' comments in today's MiceChat Update:

        "The limited capacity and distancing rules will definitely make for long lines when the parks open. I just returned from a trip to Disney World in Orlando last week. As an example - Pirates of the Caribbean instantly became a 50 minute queue the minute the park opened, because they only allow two rows/two parties of guests per boat. Space Mountain, small world, all the E-tickets were the same all over the resort. The Guest Per Hour capacity for each ride is cut by two thirds. So the parks weren't crowded, but the lines were long.

        "Dining was similar. Many dining locations were closed (and we know the same situation will exist at Disneyland), so there were long waits to get food, even when it was ordered via mobile. But what was worse was there was no place to sit and eat your food once you picked it up, because two thirds of the tables had been taken away to allow for safe distances. It was common to see folks eating their food while sitting on the ground somewhere. And of course, you're not allowed to eat and walk, so it was sometimes quite frustrating just to get a meal.
        We can expect all of this to be the same when the parks open in Anaheim."

        it combines fantasy and history, adventure and learning,
        together with every variety of recreation and fun,
        designed to appeal to everyone."

          What a disaster..........

          But I suppose they're doing the best they can with what they have to work with.

          There's really no way to win.

              Around here (Reno NV), indoor dining has been open for several months. It started out at 1/3 capacity and is now up to 2/3 or so.

              Some of the fast-food places inside truck stops never did close their indoor dining, they just closed most of the tables and left a few open.

              Now, most tables are open everywhere.

                For whatever reason (I'm not an epidemiologist so I will not speculate) under California's regulations, dining in theme parks appears more capacity limited than dining out of theme parks. Here are the regulations, where you will see indoor dining limited to 25% in the red tier, but off limits all together if you're dining indoors at at theme park. The orange and yellow tiers don't say anything about indoor dining at theme parks, however. So for the orange tier (where Disneyland is right now) it's actually not clear whether the indoor capacity limitation of 25% only applies to attractions or to all indoor facilities.

                    Yup. I'd fill up beforehand and even pack some PB&J's -- just to avoid frustration.

                      That be always the best ,than going into a park then wait in a line for food......
                      IMO - cheaper and food is better anyway - way from the parks .
                      less it's a better way to start the day !
                      ...But that just me.......

                        I agree under normal operations but Im not trying to leave the Resorts and go through the Security/Health Screen again just to save $10 a meal either.

                          Based on what I've read, there's a shortage of breakfast options available. The only breakfast options people have seen are for the Grand Californian grill and the Starbucks in DCA.

                          Don't forget to eat your cereal before arriving, folks!

                            I would say after all the initial craziness of getting Tix to access the parks....food options/restaurants to choose from if you want to make reservations is Disneys Achilles heel now...
                            Dont know why they didnt make this more of a priority when re-opening
