Disneyland Paris has shared more concept art and details about the dining locations at the refurbished Disneyland Hotel, which will reopen in January 2024. These include The Royal Banquet Buffet Restaurant and La Table de Lumière Table Service Restaurant.
“As part of the large-scale royal transformation,” Disneyland Paris states, “all Disneyland Hotel restaurants, bar, and lounges have been reimagined to spotlight the rich diversity of Disney Animation royal stories. Steeped in the same powerful storytelling enjoyed in other parts of the hotel, these spaces will offer a unique gourmet dining experience infused with a French savoir-faire and the spirit of creativity inherent to all things Disney.”

Inspired by the opulence of vast reception rooms found in every castle, The Royal Banquet invites guests to attend a royal feast amidst a gallery of paintings portraying numerous Disney royal families, such as King Triton and his 7 daughters from The Little Mermaid, the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Prince John from Robin Hood or even Kronk from The Emperor’s New Groove. Guests will choose from dishes influenced by the diverse cultures that inspired many beloved Disney stories like Spicy Cajun Shrimp dish that will pay tribute to Tiana’s native Louisiana.
And for those with hearty appetites, a sumptuous oyster and seafood bar and meat carving stand will
