Downtown Disney to add Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer restaurant

November 15, 2017, 11:57 AM · The wacky milkshake thing finally is making its way to Southern California's theme parks.

Orlando-area theme park fans have been enjoying the battle between Universal's Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen and Disney's Planet Hollywood Observatory to offer the most outrageously-flavored and topped milkshakes to fans thirsty not just for sweets, but also for Instagram likes. These photo-ready concoctions further blur any remaining distinction between food and attraction at the parks.

Now, Disney is bringing the photogenic fun to the Disneyland Resort's Downtown Disney district. "CrazyShakes" will be on the menu at Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer when it opens its first California location at Downtown Disney next year. The New York-based restaurant chain will bring its menu of hamburgers, veggie burgers, and craft brews to the resort, along with those shakes.

Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer is going into the former Build-A-Bear location, across from Uva Bar in the middle of Downtown Disney, just around the corner from the Splitsville bowling restaurant that's also now under construction. Disneyland recently announced plans to close the establishments to the west of the monorail track in Downtown Disney, including the ESPN Zone, Rainforest Cafe and Earl of Sandwich, to clear space for the luxury fourth hotel that Disney will build on the site. The addition of Splitsville and Black Tap Craft will help restore more dining capacity in the district following the loss of those other restaurants.
