At Last! After 4 Year hiatus, 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to reopen in April

Great news from Walt Disney World as the resort has finally announced the reopening of iconic restaurant, 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa!

At Last! After 4 Year hiatus, 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to reopen in April

The much loved character dining buffet location, 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, has been in a state of limbo since it closed in March 2020 together with the entire Walt Disney World Resort due to COVID-19, and while the rest of the resort has slowly returned to normal, 1900 Park Fare remained shuttered, until now that is!

At Last! After 4 Year hiatus, 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to reopen in April

Today, we have an exciting update many of you have been waiting for: 1900 Park Fare is reopening at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa on April 10. This iconic restaurant will feature returning guest favorites along with a newly refurbished dining room and other special touches.

Here are five things to look forward to when you return:

1. Wish Upon a Star with Favorite Disney Characters

A few familiar faces will stop by throughout breakfast and dinner — some for the first time at this location! In this refreshed character dining experience, you’ll be joined by Aladdin in his Prince Ali look, Cinderella, Mirabel and Tiana in her new look for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure as they celebrate the power of a wish.

2. Enjoy a Feast Fit for Royalty

An enchanting buffet will be served for breakfast and dinner, featuring some returning guest favorites — yes, that includes the strawberry soup! — along with new menu offerings dreamed up by Disney's talented chefs to pay tribute to some of the characters and stories you’ll encounter throughout the restaurant.

3. Look for Nods to the Restaurant’s Heritage

Fans of 1900 Park Fare will remember Big Bertha, an antique organ that has called the resort home since 1988. Look for her in the main dining room, where she’s on display as its grand centerpiece!

Just like before, carousel theming is woven throughout the restaurant — starting with the impressive new mural shown above, which will serve as the focal point of the restaurant’s entrance. In one of the adjoining dining rooms, you’ll find drawings of carousel animals inspired by classic Disney films like “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Little Mermaid.” Keep an eye out for other hidden carousel details when you visit!

4. Delight in Exclusive New Artwork

The artistic touches continue throughout the main dining room, where you’ll also find twelve new portraits created exclusively for the restaurant by Disney artists. Each one, inspired by the impressionist art style of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, features a different Disney character as they hope, dream and wish upon a star (or even a magic lamp or a wishing well).

5. Celebrate Traditions and Create New Ones

Over the years, 1900 Park Fare has been the backdrop of so many guests favorite vacation memories! At the heart of this unique restaurant is the magic and whimsy of turn-of-the-century gardens and fairgrounds, where people of all ages came together to enjoy each other’s company. The spirit of those carefree days spent outdoors is brought to life with each detail big and small, making it the perfect place to create new memories with loved ones.

Reservations for 1900 Park Fare open on March 5 at, so mark your calendars! While you’re there, explore other ways the resort has been receiving some grand touches that build upon its Victorian elegance with additional storybook charm.

While staying in one of the newly refurbished guest rooms, you can also dine underneath the lovely London sky at Cítricos, inspired by “Mary Poppins Returns” or enjoy some shimmering sips at Enchanted Rose Lounge, inspired by “Beauty and the Beast.” Recently refreshed spaces at Narcoossee’s and Victoria & Albert’s, the culinary crown jewel of Walt Disney World Resort, provide even more ways to be our guests and enjoy all that Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has to offer.

There’s even more to come as we continue to refresh and enhance Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and we can’t wait to share more with you in the future.
