PHOTOS: Restaurants Shuttered at Downtown Disney District Due to California COVID-19 Stay-at-Home Order, Select Locations Remain Open Strictly for Take-Out

With this new order, all dining must revert back to take-out and delivery. As of today, Disneyland Resort has now closed all restaurants at both Downtown Disney District and its recently-opened Buena Vista Street expansion.

A sign at the entrance of Downtown Disney District reminds guests that eating and drinking is prohibited on Disneyland Resort property. Do note that the $10 parking fee still applies despite the various closures.
