Refurbishments are coming soon to Tangaroa Terrace at the Disneyland Hotel and White Water Snacks at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, with both locations closing soon so work can begin, Disney Parks Blog reports.

Tangaroa Terrace will receive the more intensive renovation, reopening as Tangaroa Terrace Bar & Grill. According to Disney Parks Blog’s Michael Ramirez, “Guests can expect a new outdoor bar and refreshed patio, serving island cocktails and Asian-inspired fare. New details will also be added to the interior space, including light fixtures made of colorful fishing floats and netting, a tropical mural and bamboo accents. Guests will also be delighted to find a dedicated service window for various coffee selections in the morning and the popular Dole Whip throughout the day, perfect while enjoying time at the pools. The grill will offer options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an open-air marketplace for quick bites.” The quick-service location will reopen in early 2019. In the meantime, menu offerings will be available at The Coffee House, Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar and Steakhouse 55.

Meanwhile, White Water Snacks will also be closing soon, and will reopen later this year with a refreshed look. Hearthstone Lounge will be offering quick-service snacks while this refurbishment is underway.

Also at the Grand Californian, a new pool bar will enhance the luxurious experience at the hotel and spa starting Spring 2019. According to Ramirez, “the new pool bar area will keep with the hotel’s signature Arts and Crafts design with natural boulder stonework and clinker bricks. A custom tile mural at the back bar will also set the craftsman tone in the new space. In addition, a trellis structure will provide shade and a perfect respite to enjoy sipping beverages and snacking on appetizers. A variety of new lounge and table seating will also be available.”

We will provide more information as the story develops.
