Get Ready for Lots of Holiday Happenings When Buena Vista Street at Disneyland Opens November 19!
As we reported last month, Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park would be reopening just in time for the holidays as an extension of the Downtown Disney District. We have just learned that Buena Vista Street will begin welcoming Guests on November 19. In addition, we have just received tons of new information on the holiday happenings that will be offered when this new shopping and dining area opens!
Carthay Circle Lounge – Alfresco Dining
When Buena Vista Street opens on November 19, the iconic Carthay Circle Restaurant will be reimagined as Carthay Circle Lounge – Alfresco Dining.
And, just like the name suggests, Carthay Circle Lounge – Alfresco Dining will offer Guests with an outdoor dining environment with a menu offering Mediterranean-California light fare with small plates that can be shared or enjoyed separately. Chefs Andrew Sutton and Alex Flores have been tapped to curate the seasonal menu with highlights that include the Carthay shrimp roll, harissa-roasted lam, soy-glazed salmon, lemon-crusted fish of the day, and an artisan cheese board.
For the kids, Carthay Circle Lounge – Alfresco Dining will offer options including orecchiette pasta with marinara, and orange dragon chicken skewers.
Guests of all ages will enjoy this throwback venue that boasts attention to detail, flavorful international fare, an extensive wine and craft beer menu, cool cocktails, and outdoor seating with amazing views of Buena Vista Street.
Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe
Down the street, Buena Vista Street, Guests are invited to stop by Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe for a yummy hot chocolate or cranberry orange scone.
Award Wieners and Smokejumpers Grill
Take advantage of the uber-convenient Mobile Feature option via the Disneyland app at both Award Wieners and Smokejumpers Grill!
Dine on corn dogs and soft drinks at Award Wieners or head to Smokejumpers Grill for back cheeseburgers, chicken tenders, onion rings, waffle fries, kids’ meals, and vanilla or chocolate milkshakes.
Buena Vista Street Shopping
If you love to shop like myself, then Buena Vista Street is going to be the place to be beginning November 19 – especially if you are looking for Disney magic!
Buena Vista Street takes Guests back to the 1920s and 30s with a boulevard that depicts a typical Los Angeles neighborhood where Walt Disney lived after arriving in Southern California back in 1923. The setting offers the feel of quaint mom and pop shops of the time and a big city department store including Elias & Co., Julius Katz & Sons, Kingswell Camera Ship, and Trolley Treats.
Important Buena Vista Street Details
When Buena Vista Street at Disneyland opens on November 19, there will be a charge of $10 for each car parking at the Downtown Disney District in the Simba Lot. In addition, to keep with social distancing protocols both on Buena Vista Street and the Downtown Disney District, a mobile wait list system may be enabled the areas and/or its queue are at capacity.
Unfortunately, the rides and attractions inside California Adventure Park will not be accessible when Buena Vista Street opens.
