RUMOR: Bongos Cuban Café To Close Later This Year at Disney Springs

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

It’s been a long time coming, but Bongos Cuban Café is finally slated to close later this year at Disney Springs, per multiple Cast Members who currently work there.

This closure has been rumored for a very long time, ever since the Disney Springs project began. Reportedly, all third-party restaurants were given the option to either remodel or leave, which became the fate of the longstanding Wolfgang Puck Grand Café right next door.

As for what will take over the space, it is being said that the owners of Splitsville might buy the space and transform it into a Tex-Mex restaurant, or something similar.

In the meantime, until the restaurant officially closes, you still have time to eat some of the best (if not the best) churros on property. Reservations are currently showing availability until November 2nd, but no official announcements have been made by Disney as to the closure.

Rumors also suggest that Bongos is moving to Sunset Walk at the new Margaritaville Resort in Orlando.

We’ll keep you updated as to the official closing date moving forward.
