Sprinkles Closes in Disneyland Resort as Part of Downtown Disney’s Reimagining
Recently, MickeyBlog shared a construction update from the Happiest Place on Earth. Downtown Disney is currently in the process of being reimagined, and as a result, Sprinkles is now closed.
Sprinkles bakery opened in 2016, replacing a former jewelry store. Guests enjoyed grabbing a gourmet cupcake as they strolled through Disneyland’s shopping and dining district!
Downtown Disney’s Reimagining
Recently, we shared that Disneyland Resort’s Catal Restaurant and Uva Bar & Cafe would close on April 14. The popular dining locations will make way for Paseo and Centrico, also part of Downtown Disney’s reimagining.
Sprinkles sits next door to Catal Restaurant and across from Uva Bar & Cafe, as you can see on the map. The location’s closure is a result of Paseo and Centrico’s coming arrival as well.
Paseo and Centrico
About a year ago, fans got some information about the new restaurant. Disney shares, “Michelin-starred Chef Carlos Gaytan will bring his inclusive vision of Mexican cuisine to Paseo and Centrico in the locations currently occupied by Catal & Uva Bar, brought to life by Patina Restaurant Group.”
In addition, “the restaurant and central courtyard bar and dining area will offer guests a multi-sensory journey to the heart of Chef Gaytan’s homeland.”
Current Downtown Disney Construction
WonderGround Gallery and Disney Home have also been affected by construction. Currently, Guests can visit WonderGround Gallery’s temporary location at the former ESPN Zone building.
Disney Home is temporarily closed, with no relocation option. The vision for Downtown Disney’s reimagining draws inspiration from Southern California’s mid-century modern architecture.
Disney shares, “the west-end area will be a beautiful blend of vibrant color palettes, design elements and patterns influenced by the region, and will include an open lawn for relaxation and future events, and an even broader and diverse collection of dining and shopping.”
While it’s always sad to see some of our favorite Disney fixtures go, we’re excited about what’s in store! If you’re planning a visit to Downtown Disney, keep in mind that Sprinkles is now closed.
