Today, a popular quick service location appears to have closed in Epcot. A restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has also reduced operating hours. Read on to see more details.
Animal Kingdom reopened on July 11, and Epcot reopened to guests on July 15th. Since the reopening of the parks, guests have visited Walt Disney World, but have definitely experienced a different park with many experiences no longer offered, such as character meet and greets, parades and fireworks.
However, if you do decide to visit Walt Disney World, while the parks may be different, don’t worry. The magic is still there!
What can you still enjoy at the parks?
Visiting the parks now is definitely different, but you can still enjoy many of your favorite things and see new experiences, such as the character cavalcades. If you go to Epcot, try and see if you can spot Winnie the Pooh trying to catch butterflies outside or maybe see if you can spot Joy outside enjoying the sunshine.
The International Food and Wine Festival is also happening right now, so be sure to enjoy all of the yummy food offerings that are available!
Despite the parks being reopened, there are still many Cast Members who have still not returned to work. We have also seen a number of employees recently laid off, specifically employees of restaurants in the Mexico Pavilion.
Today, we have noticed the Tangierine Cafe in the Morocco Pavilion has been temporarily closed. It was included in the initial list of dining locations that are open for guests. Today, it is now listed as being “Temporarily Unavailable.”
Over in Animal Kingdom, Kenny the Pirate is there today and he noticed that Yak and Yeti Local Foods Cafe is no longer serving breakfast.
We do not know if either of these closures are permanent at this time and no reason was given for either of the closures today. We will keep a close eye on things and let you know of any further developments.
