Restaurants Coming to Disney Parks in 2023
Changes are happening at Disney Parks this year! From new rides to characters returning, there’s something to make everyone happy. Today we are focusing on the restaurants coming to the Disney Parks in 2023.
Roundup Rodeo BBQ
Roundup Rodeo BBQ is coming to Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Andy’s backyard is getting ready for more toys! Roundup Rodeo BBQ will be opening on March 23rd to welcome guests for delicious barbecue and toy-sized fun. This will be the world’s first “Toy Story” table service restaurant.
Using his imagination, Woody’s Roundup toys, and other playthings, Andy has built a rodeo restaurant for all his pals. We are excited for guests to enter the dining room and discover just how much fun Andy had creating a rollicking place for honorary toys to enjoy barbecue-inspired comfort foods served family-style, with platters of house-smoked meats, a roundup of sides and some miniature sweet surprises along the way.
In this wild, western setting, you can find a steam train supported by colored pencils, a suspiciously impressive house of cards, and game boards featuring beloved characters from the “Toy Story” films. To fill the stands of his rodeo arena, Andy has decorated the cardboard box with hand-drawn audience members! The dining room also features the rodeo’s star performers: Jessie, Trixie, and Bo Peep with her leapin’ sheep Billy, Goat, and Gruff!
Cake Bake Shop
Coming to Disney’s BoardWalk is the Cake Bake Shop. The shop will offer delicious cakes, cookies, pies, macarons, coffee, croissants, and more, as the enchanting bakery is set to open its doors at Walt Disney World Resort soon. Disney describes The Cake Bake Shop Bakery by Gwendolyn Rogers as follows:
Delight in the Ultimate Indulgence
Discover this new bakery with a whimsical atmosphere that complements the idyllic charm of Disney’s BoardWalk. Upon entering, you’ll find counters lined with handmade cakes that are one-of-a-kind in beauty and taste, attractively displayed on French porcelain platters topped with glass domes. Indulge in these and other blissful bites, such as:
- French macarons
- Dessert bars
- And more!
Summer House on the Lake
Summer House on the Lake is coming to Disney Springs this year. The concept for this location is as follows:
“The California-inspired menu, led by Chef Ben Goodnick, features simple ingredients sourced from local grower partnerships and sustainable products. Rosé is poured all day off the signature Rosé Cart, alongside an extensive wine and handcrafted cocktail list. And no matter the weather, the bright and airy vibes always fill the atmosphere. Whether you’re in for date night, a family get-together, or brunch with friends, summer is waiting for you on the other side.”
Coming to Disneyland this year is Tiana’s Palace!
Tiana’s Palace will be the newest restaurant on Orleans Street. Within its peach-colored walls and fancy green wrought-iron balconies, you’ll find elegant fixtures and appointments reminiscent of Tiana’s life and friendships. The new Tiana’s Palace will have much of the same pinch of pizzazz and flair as the restaurant from the film, offering authentic New Orleans flavors inspired by Tiana’s friends and adventures in this quick-service style restaurant. While Tiana’s Palace is not a character dining location, guests may find Tiana in New Orleans Square.
The menu at Tiana’s Palace will expand on many of the current favorites served in the location, explore seasonal flavors and, of course, offer some New Orleans classics. Tiana’s Palace is sure to be a gathering place for friends and family to enjoy great food and celebrate together, just like Tiana and her father James dreamed of.
Earl of Sandwich
Earl of Sandwich is returning to the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort next month! Soon you can once again look forward to one of their hot sandwiches on artisan bread, with grab-and-go options at Earl of Sandwich or table service options at Earl of Sandwich Tavern, both of which will be temporarily located at the La Brea Bakery location. La Brea Bakery is exiting the restaurant business, and we thank them for two decades of partnership in the Downtown Disney District. Keep your eyes peeled for Earl of Sandwich opening in the coming weeks!
Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen
While this isn’t a brand new restaurant, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen in the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland is getting a renovation. Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen continues the evolution of its location into Jazz Kitchen Coastal Grill & Patio. Soon, you’ll be able to enjoy the open, warm and welcoming ambiance across the outdoor patios, veranda and dining rooms. In fact, recent diners have already begun to enjoy the updated second floor space! Jazz Kitchen’s “all-day” menu will feature the popular Pasta Jambalaya and Gumbo Ya-Ya, plus fresh riffs using coastal-inspired ingredients like the new open-faced Grilled Lobster BLT Po’ Boy. Signature hand-crafted beignets will continue to be a staple, with an expanded menu including specialty glazed beignets that are dipped, drizzled and sprinkled in jazzy signature and seasonal flavor combinations. Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen is closed for a short time to accommodate continued work in the first floor dining space and will debut its exciting new look and menu soon!
