BREAKING: Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure to Reopen on November 19

With Disneyland Resort theme parks still unable to reopen, it seems Disney is exploring alternatives to bypass current guideline restrictions. Disneyland recently announced that they will be reopening Disney California Adventure as a shopping and dining destination, with locations along Buena Vista Street welcoming back guests for the first time in months. Now, the grand reopening date has been revealed, and Buena Vista Street will be welcoming back guests starting November 19. You can read the full announcement below.


Buena Vista Street opens Nov. 19, 2020, extending the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort with more Disney shopping and dining experiences.  Here’s a peek at what guests can expect beginning Nov. 19:

Carthay Circle Restaurant, known for its upscale cuisine, is introducing Carthay Circle Lounge – Alfresco Dining, a new outdoor dining environment and menu featuring Mediterranean-California light fare, with small plates that can be shared or enjoyed separately. The seasonal menu created by Chefs Andrew Sutton and Alex Flores will feature the Carthay shrimp roll, harissa-roasted lamb, soy-glazed salmon, lemon-crusted fish of the day and an artisan cheese board. Kids will find menu options just for them, including orecchiette pasta with marinara and orange dragon chicken skewers. Relax and step back in time at this throwback venue that boasts distinct attention to detail. Unwind with flavorful, international fare and a glass of wine, craft beers or a cool cocktail, enjoying expanded outdoor seating and amazing views of Buena Vista Street.

On another corner, stop by Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe for a yummy hot chocolate and a cranberry orange scone. Or, place a mobile order for corn dogs or soft drinks at Award Wieners, or for Smokejumpers Grill, serving bacon cheeseburgers, chicken tenders, onion rings, waffle fries, kids’ meals, and vanilla and chocolate shakes.

Along Buena Vista Street, Disney magic brings a nostalgic throwback to the 1920s and ’30s. The boulevard depicts a typical Los Angeles neighborhood where a young Walt Disney lived and worked after arriving in Southern California in 1923. This idyllic setting captures the quaint “mom-and-pop” shops of the time and a big-city department store including Elias & Co., Julius Katz & Sons, Kingswell Camera Shop and Trolley Treats, where guests can find unique Disney apparel and gifts. 

A mobile wait list system may go into place when Buena Vista Street and/or its queue are at capacity, similar to the process at some retail locations in the Downtown Disney District. A new parking fee will also be in place at the Simba Parking Lot. Disney California Adventure Park is currently closed.
