NEWS: Huge List of Menu Changes Affect Several Disney Restaurants

NEWS: Huge List of Menu Changes Affect Several Disney Restaurants

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

As Disney World gears up to reopen in just under a month, several menu offerings are no longer listed at several restaurants as well as a few items have increased in price. Check out the changes below!

We saw menu changes and price increases hit Disney Parks during the closure as well as changes various Disney Springs restaurants upon reopening.

Most recently, Topolino Terrace also removed several menu items. You can read about those HERE.

Now, several of our favorite restaurants around the Walt Disney World Resort are limiting menu items.

Why the Menu Changes?

Menu presentation

This could be due to food shortages because of COVID-19, safety and health protocols in the kitchen, and simplifying the menu to encourage Guests to order food more quickly (and thus limit the amount of time Guests are staying in one place at a time).

Whatever the reasoning, you will not see many of the same menu items as you did before the parks closed!

Let’s dive in…But first, please keep in mind there may be additional menu changes. This is not an exhaustive list. Character Locator will have the full menus!
