Every Disney World Restaurant That STILL Hasn’t Reopened

Lots of dining locations in Disney World have gradually reopened and we’re happy to see the return of some of our favorite spots.

Crystal Palace

Although many restaurants have started to open their doors and welcome guests once again, others still remain closed. We’re on the lookout for updates from these dining locations, hoping that they’ll be open again soon. But, in the meantime, here are all of the spots in Disney World that are still closed.

Jiko — The Cooking Place

Jiko at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is known for its African and Indian cuisine. This restaurant, along with Animal Kingdom Lodge as a whole, is still closed.

If you’re looking for some of that African-inspired cuisine, you can visit Sanaa to get your fix and try the delicious Bread Service it offers.


We’ve seen some fluctuating reopenings from the restaurants in EPCOT’s Japan Pavilion. Teppan Edo has reopened, Tokyo Dining has had two very limited reopenings, and Takumi-Tei has yet to reopen at all.


This restaurant typically offers upscale Japanese cuisine, including Maki Sushi, Wagyu Steak, Duck, and Sea Bass.

  1. Citricos is our go to every visit for a fancy night out. It always brings the magic to life and takes service and food to a whole new level.
    Boma…the variety and price can’t be beat. Salads and cooked dishes like you don’t get anywhere else. Our first night always spent here.
    Chefs du France. Also excellent. Took mum for her 70 birthday. Was hoping to this year for her 80. Covid might put a stop to that.
    The restaurant’s are amazing. The food top notch. I miss the entire Disney experience. Right down to my last night always at Crystal Palace with Pooh.

  2. The Hollywood Brown Derby is pricey and worth every dollar we have spent. The food is scrumptious and the desserts sinfully amazing. The menu is seasonal and we have not ever been disappointed
    Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo in Star Wars:Galaxy’s Edge has awesome American food in a casual setting to eat in or take out. We often order 2 meals each an have it the next day.

  3. Storybook Dining at Artist Point was shockingly one of the best dining experiences I’ve had at Disney, and I’ve been to virtually all of them, and I’m pretty bummed I can’t take my snow-white obsessed niece anytime soon if ever 😥

  4. Big big disappointment when we went in the fall was the limited dining experiences. Not everyone appreciates a burger, bugs, or turkey leg at every meal and truly not thinking about placing orders ahead of time for other quick service. Less magic because of this. Conversely, spent insane dollars on alcohol just to make it less painful. Won’t be back for some time, my liver can’t handle it.

  5. Give me back Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto! That is my wife & my favorite weekly date night spot & we miss it so much…. BANG, BANG! TWO SHOTS OF RUM!!
