There are hundreds of places to grab a bite to eat in and around Disney World!

World Premiere Food Court

Each of Disney’s hotels offers at least one or more restaurants for you to stop by to enjoy during your stay. But every now and then, these restaurants will close for refurbishment. It’s important to stay up to date on which places will be available and which won’t be while you’re on vacation. Speaking of which, one Disney World food court has partially closed!

Disney World Hotels

World Premiere Food Court — Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort

The World Premiere Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort is undergoing a bit of refurbishment throughout July!

The World Premiere Food Court

This food court closed for refurbishment on July 1st and will remain closed until July 31st. While it’s getting a face-lift, you will be able to mobile order from a limited menu on the Disney World app. If you’re planning a stay at this resort in July, this is an important update to note!

Of course, other refurbishments continue around Disney World from July 6th through July 13th. Take a peek at what will impact your trip this week!

Magic Kingdom

Country Bear Jamboree

Country Bear Jamboree closed on January 27th, 2024, for a pretty big refurbishment. Disney announced that a NEW show is coming to Country Bear Jamboree, with the bears learning an all-new act. The new show is set to open on July 17th!

Hey, pals!

New costumes and details have been shared recently that are getting us excited to see the new act!


We’re getting excited to see the new show, and some of you may get to see it before anyone else!

Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade

We had to say goodbye to an opening day attraction on June 23rd.

Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade

The Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade was around for generations and provided simple fun to all who played. Now, the attraction has closed to make room for a new Disney Vacation Club lounge. This lounge will be the third in Disney World, joining one in EPCOT and one at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Disney has not yet announced when the new lounge will open.

Tomorrowland Terrace

Tomorrowland Terrace is a quick-service restaurant that has been closed since the 2020 pandemic-related closures, but even before that, this spot was only occasionally open.

Beautiful view from Tomorrowland Terrace

Once in a while, you’ll see the dining room open as a rest area (and it’s still being used for the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties), but it’s usually all roped off and empty.

Tomorrowland Terrace

Disney hasn’t announced when this spot could finally reopen, but we’ll be watching for updates. If you’re looking for a nice spot to hang out in Disney World and sit down for a rest, this could be it!

Test Track

Test Track closed on June 17th. Disney is giving this ride a BIG makeover! 

Test Track

Disney has shared that the new version of Test Track will take inspiration from the old ride, World of Motion, that was originally there when the park opened in 1982. Other than that, Disney hasn’t shared many other details about the project. We don’t even have a reopening date yet, but we’ll be watching for more updates.

What Will Disney World Change at Test Track? Here Are the 5 Biggest Theories

Disney Vacation Club Lounge

The DVC lounge at the Imagination Pavilion in EPCOT is closed for a short refurbishment.

DVC Lounge in EPCOT

The lounge closed on June 2nd and will remain closed until July 13th, 2024. While the lounge is closed, a temporary DVC lounge has been set up in the Odyssey pavilion. You will still find snacks, drinks, and places to sit here, though only half the pavilion has been blocked off to be used as the lounge.

Temporary DVC Lounge

It’s still a great place for DVC members to take advantage of the air conditioning spot to relax.

Check out the temporary DVC lounge here!

Restaurant Marrakesh

Restaurant Marrakesh is currently closed in the Morocco pavilion of EPCOT’s World Showcase, and there’s no word yet on when the restaurant could fully reopen. The restaurant kind of opened on May 1st. It had been functioning as an Annual Passholder lounge, but that experience is now closed.

We’re watching for updates on when the full restaurant could reopen!

Disney is going to introduce a new, updated show in this spot, though it will still be themed to the animated movie The Little Mermaid! The new show will be called “The Little Mermaid — A Musical Adventure” and is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Fall 2024.


It will be a “fully reimagined theatrical production inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios classic.”
