Walt Disney World's popular 1900 Park Fare restaurant will finally reopen to guests on 10th April, 2024. 

The character dining option at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has been closed since March 2020. It's themed around a Victorian carousel and will make its grand comeback with a renovated dining space and a few new special touches.

1900 Park Fare previously hosted the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast, a buffet that featured the likes of Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, and Winnie the Pooh. In the evening, this spot hosted Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner, with guest appearances from Cinderella and Prince Charming.

But what should we expect when 1900 Park reopens? Walt Disney World has teased new details.

A Magical Character Dining Location

Disney has confirmed that this location will feature a refreshed character dining experience, with Aladdin in his Prince Ali look, Mirabel, and Tiana joining Cinderella. However, there's no news on whether the popular Tremaines will pop up.

Buffet dining will also return alongside new menu offerings – fans of this whimsical dining spot will also be glad to hear that strawberry soup will be on the menu.

The restaurant’s carousel theme is still integral to its design as a new mural will be featured at the entrance. Keep your eyes peeled when you enter the dining rooms, as there will be drawings of carousel animals from Disney classics like Alice in Wonderland and The Little Mermaid.

The main dining space will showcase twelve new portraits by Disney artists. These paintings will be in the distinct impressionist art style of the 19th and early 20th centuries and will contain twelve Disney characters as they wish upon a star… or a lamp… or a wishing well.

Grand Floridian legend Big Bertha, the antique organ that has been featured in the hotel since 1988, will take pride of place in the main dining space. Fingers crossed she still works after her four-year hiatus!
