Chefs de France at EPCOT Now Accepting Reservations Beginning October 8

After initially looking like it was going to open this weekend, Chefs de France updated their website with hours beginning October 8. Guests can now make reservations starting that day.


Lunch hours are currently 12:30 PM to 3:55 PM daily. Dinner is 4:00 PM to 6:50 PM on most days, and 4:00 PM to 7:50 PM on Saturdays, which is in line with EPCOT’s daily operating hours. You can view the Chefs de France menu on the Walt Disney World website.

With Disney’s Cultural Representative program temporarily suspended and so many staff and servers back home in France, fans of the restaurant worried that the location would remain shuttered for a while, but it seems they are ready for their phased reopening.

Eric Weistroffer, Executive Director for JBI, LLC. issued a statement back in August assuring guests that both Chefs de France and Monsieur Paul were expected to open despite staffing constraints. The pavilion looks forward to the grand opening of La Creperie de Paris, which is still set to open with Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure as part of the new France Pavilion expansion.

Currently, Chefs de France and Monsieur Paul remain closed, with just L’Artisan des Glaces, Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, and a Food & Wine Festival kiosk open at the pavilion.
