Two fast-casual food spots are getting spruced up at the Disneyland Resort, and are also adding new bar seating for pool-goers and hotel guests.
Tangaroa Terrace, the South Seas hideaway at the Disneyland Hotel, closed Sept. 4 and will reopen in early 2019 as Tangaroa Terrace Bar & Grill. The restaurant’s 1950s Tiki-inspired design, however, will remain the perfect tropical complement to the mid-century modern architecture of the Disneyland Hotel. Guests can expect a new outdoor bar and refreshed patio, serving island cocktails and Asian-inspired fare. New details will also be added to the interior space, including light fixtures made of colorful fishing floats and netting, a tropical mural and bamboo accents. Guests will also be delighted to find a dedicated service window for various coffee selections in the morning and the popular Dole Whip throughout the day, perfect while enjoying time at the pools. The grill will offer options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an open-air marketplace for quick bites. While Tangaroa Terrace is under refurbishment, menu offerings will be available at The Coffee House, Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar and Steakhouse 55.
White Water Snacks at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will also close soon and reopen later this year with a fresh new look. In the meantime, Hearthstone Lounge will offer grab-and-go food and beverage options.
Guests of the Grand Californian will also be able to lounge in even more luxury poolside, with a new pool bar opening in spring 2019. As shown in the artwork above, the new pool bar area will keep with the hotel’s signature Arts and Crafts design with natural boulder stonework and clinker bricks. A custom tile mural at the back bar will also set the craftsman tone in the new space. In addition, a trellis structure will provide shade and a perfect respite to enjoy sipping beverages and snacking on appetizers. A variety of new lounge and table seating will also be available.
