While this is not an announcement from Disney, this is most like the list of restaurants that will initially open at Disney Resort Hotels and Disney Vacation Club locations.

What Is Missing

While it is interesting to learn what location will probably open, it is just as interesting to see what types of locations are not included.

There are no buffet locations like Trail’s End at Fort Wilderness or Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge.

There are also no character dining locations or dinner shows, like Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary or The Hoop De Doo Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness.


The union also reports that housekeeping Cast Members have been recalled at these resort hotels:

  • Animal Kingdom Lodge
  • Contemporary
  • Fort Wilderness
  • Grand Floridian
  • Old Key West
  • Polynesian
  • Riviera Resort
  • Saratoga Springs
  • Wilderness Lodge
  • Yacht & Beach Club

This list is also interesting since there are no Value Resorts and most of these locations are also DVC resorts.

Glad to hear Disney is recalling Cast Member in restaurants and housekeeping?
