BIG NEWS About Restaurants in Downtown Disney

In case you haven’t heard, Disney is working on reimagining Downtown Disney!


The shopping and dining district at Disneyland Resort is home to many beloved shops and restaurants but it will look completely different soon. Back in 2022, we learned that some big changes would happen here in January 2023 and now we’ve learned what they are!

First of all, Earl of Sandwich is coming back! This spot closed in January last year to make way for some of this construction, but it is temporarily taking over the La Brea Bakery Cafe which just permanently closed. There is not an exact opening date yet, but it will open in February of this year! There will be a grab-and-go option as well as a table service option.


Next on our list of updates is the reimagining of Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen! The restaurant recently announced it was closing for refurbishment and now we have details on what’s to come. The restaurant will be changing its name to Jazz Kitchen Coastal Grill & Patio and will get an all-new menu (don’t worry, it’ll still have that New Orleans flair!).


We can’t wait to see the renovated space and new touches Disney adds. Disney said that the restaurant will be closed for a short time, but there is currently no reopening date.


Now it’s time to talk about the new restaurants! At the D23 Expo back in 2022, Disney announced that Porto’s Bakery and Din Tai Fung would be debuting a new location at Downtown Disney. Disney just announced that Porto’s Bakery will be designed and built where La Brea Bakery Cafe is now.

We also got a look at some new concept art for Din Tai Fung coming to the district — look how gorgeous it’ll look inside! There is not opening timeline for this or Porto’s just yet, but we’ll let you know when Disney makes another announcement.
