It seems hard to believe, but it has been just over four years since Walt Disney World Resort was forced to shut its gates because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Most Magical Place on Earth was empty for months, finally reopening in July 2020. But when Disney World finally did reopen, things were much different than they were pre-pandemic. There were strict capacity limits, mask requirements, no park hopping, no character dining, and social distancing was enforced.

Things are mostly back to normal since the pandemic, but there was one glaring closure — 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The restaurant was undergoing a refurbishment, but guests could not understand why the popular character dining spot remained closed.

In January of this year, Disney Dining reported that the restaurant would be reopening, but cast members would not reveal when. Then, in March, Disney announced that the buffet-style restaurant would reopen on April 10!

Well, April 10 is finally here and 1900 Park Fare is once again open and ready to delight guests! And we have a sneak peek of the refurb, courtesy of Ashley Carter.

When 1900 Park Fare reopens, it will also feature a “refreshed look.” The new look in the dining room “pays homage to the late Victorian period, with art reminiscent of this golden era,” according to Disney.

But it is not the same 1900 Park Fare you remember. Disney has made some changes to not only its menu, but also characters that guests will meet during their meal! Instead of having a mishmash of characters during the breakfast buffet and a Cinderella’s ball theme at night, there will be a variety of characters throughout the day.

Disney shared some photos of the new character interactions that guests will have, including with Aladdin, Cinderella, Princess Tiana, and even Mirabel from Encanto!

Character changes aren’t the only thing guests dining at 1900 Park Fare will notice. Disney has also made some big changes to both the breakfast and dinner buffet menus.

  1. That new character lineup stinks. They should have kept the originals.
