SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — With outdoor dining allowed in California once again, Downtown Disney is welcoming guests back into California Adventure for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Though the park is closed, Buena Vista Street has been transformed into an extension of Downtown Disney's food and retail stops. The state's regional stay-at-home order had previously banned outdoor dining at the district.

Of the dining options available, a special alfresco dining experience is being offered at Carthay Circle Lounge. Guests can sink their teeth into delicious dishes, enjoy craft beers and cocktails, and soak in the view of the park's rendition of classic California. The park highly recommends making a reservation for the lounge online ahead of visiting.

Elsewhere along the street, guests can use the Disneyland mobile app for contactless, mobile food orders from Award Wieners and Smokejumpers Grill. There are also several outdoor food carts on Buena Vista Street for snacks, refreshments, and desserts.

A full list of Downtown Disney's hours and dining locations is available online. Visitors will be expected to wear face coverings and must have their temperature checked before being allowed into the district or park.
