The Disneyland Resort has confirmed the final operating date for the Downtown Disney locations that will close to clear space for the resort's upcoming fourth hotel.
Disneyland announced last year that it would close several restaurants and the theaters in Downtown Disney as it built a new luxury hotel in between the existing Disneyland Hotel and the Downtown Disney monorail station. The new hotel is slated to open sometime in 2021.
The AMC Theaters, Rainforest Cafe, westside Starbucks, Earl of Sandwich, and the ESPN Zone all will close by June 30, Disney has confirmed. That does not mean that each location will stay open all way through June — some could close before the deadline. But all locations must be closed by June 30. Demolition will begin at some point after that.
Disneyland already has begun site work on a second parking structure, on the site of the old Pinocchio lot next to Mickey and Friends, as part of the ongoing transformation of the resort. In addition to the new hotel, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens in Disneyland next year and a new Marvel land opens on the site of the soon-to-closed It's a Bug's Land in Disney California Adventure in 2020.Tweet
