While on a recent visit to the Disneyland Hotel, we noticed that the restaurant was entirely blocked off with black curtains.

Only a small hallway to the right of the curtain remains open, and serves as a path to backstage for Cast Members.

The sign, which was once located where this curtain stands now, has also been removed. This marks the beginning of construction on what will become a flexible lounge space.

Disney had recently announced the former restaurant’s transition into lounge space, which will sometimes operate as an extension of a seasonal bar. Steakhouse 55 has been closed since 2020, when it was initially shuttered due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Disney announced the restaurant’s permanent closure with a statement in the summer of 2021, stating: “At this time, there are no plans to reopen Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel. We are exploring options for this location and will update you when we have news to share.” Construction curtains went up in front of the restaurant in January of this year.
