More weekday dining closures are taking place at Magic Kingdom. See which new location joins the list and find out how this will affect your trip.
As holiday crowds die down and weekdays become less busy than weekends, Disney is closing certain restaurants.
Just recently, we learned that The Lunching Pad would be closed during the week. The quick-service restaurant serves up hot dogs, pretzels, snacks, and more over in Tomorrowland. It was also one of the few places where you could grab a Cheshire Cat Tail.
Tomorrowland Terrace also joins The Lunching Pad in reducing hours during the weekdays. Beginning today, February 1, it will not be open for Guests during the week. However, if you are visiting Friday-Sunday, you can fuel up there.
Beginning March 8, Tomorrowland Terrace is expected to reopen 7 days a week.
You may remember that this restaurant recently reopened to accommodate the increase in holiday crowds. It served up fare from Columbia Harbour House, which has not reopened at all. If you’re looking for your lobster rolls, you’ll have to plan a trip to Magic Kingdom during the weekend.
We predicted we would see more weekday closures and that brings us to today’s news.
Westward Ho joins The Lunching Pad and Tomorrowland Terrace on the list of restaurants that are closed during the week in February. The stand is located in Frontierland and serves up corn dog, churros, Mickey pretzels, and drinks. It is an excellent opportunity to grab a snack and watch one of the character cavalcades float through.
It will be open from 11 am to 3 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Beginning March 8, the stand will reopen 7 days a week.
How will this affect your trip?
Well, if you planned to grab a snack in Frontierland you will need to look elsewhere.
I would suggest Pecos Bill, which is a quick-service restaurant that serves tacos, burgers, and the like. You can also grab a turkey leg from the Frontierland Turkey Leg Cart or popcorn from the Frontierland Popcorn Cart. There’s also a small stand that serves churros and pretzels in case you need your fix.
Hopefully this is it for the Magic Kingdom dining closures! Do you have a February trip planned? What do you think of these weekday closings? Let us know on Facebook.
