More Locations Reopen at Downtown Disney

July 23, 2020, 2:34 PM · Two more restaurants join a rethemed shop in reopening to visitors at Disneyland's Downtown Disney today.

Tortilla Jo’s and Ballast Point Brewing Company are reopening today with patio service, as indoor dining continues to be banned in the state of California due to the pandemic. They are joined by California Sole - the former Sanuk - which offers "summer footwear for men and women."

Disneyland's shopping and dining district reopened to guests earlier this month, even as Disneyland and Disney California Adventure remain closed indefinitely.

Previously reopened dining locations include Asian Street Eats, Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes, Earl of Sandwich, Jamba, Naples, Salt & Straw, Starbucks, Uva Bar, and Wetzel's Pretzels. That leaves Catal, LaBrea Bakery Cafe and Express, Napolini Pizzeria, Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, Splitsville and Sprinkles as the only locations still closed.

Downtown Disney is open from 10am to 8pm daily, though individual locations' hours may vary. Parking is available only in the Simba lot, which may close when it reaches capacity. All guests must wear facemasks when visiting Downtown Disney and must pass a temperature check when entering. Capacities are limited in all locations, and Disney is using a mobile wait list to control the number of people inside World of Disney, when necessary.

I know it was meant tongue in cheek but reading up and seems that article from next week was right, WDW is the safest place in Florida for many.

I saw videos of how some employees are wearing face masks, face screens and gloves around guests. Compare that to Sea World which barely seems to care if you wear a mask.

RE: MikeW

Because Disney and Universal studios have more leverage than SeaWorld does when it comes to mask compliance.

Being banned from Disney or Universal for non-mask compliance hurts a lot more than being banned from SeaWorld

I visited all three theme park brands in Orlando in the past week and Universal wins the safety test in my eyes. Disney is a close second but I really like the fact that a Universal employee pours some hand sanitizer on anyone who gets on the ride. I feel that goes a long way in staying safe.

As for Downtown Disney I still miss Rainforest Cafe. I know its touristy but for my family and I it was always a "we're on vacation" moment when we have dinner at the ole' Rainforest Cafe. Still hoping a comeback is in the works for it in Anaheim.
