Good news for Disneyland lovers: You’ll be able to get into Disney’s California Adventure soon. While the theme parks remain closed — and per this week’s guidance from California Gov. Gavin Newsom, won’t be opening anytime soon — Disney has found a loophole to get people into one of them. In November, Disneyland will be opening Buena Vista Street, the California Adventure counterpart to Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A., for dining and shopping.
Disneyland posted a statement today saying that next month (the exact date is not yet known), they’ll be opening the front section of California Adventure, which will function like an expansion of the current offerings at Downtown Disney. Stores like Elias & Co. and Julius Katz & Sons will be open for shopping, and Trolley Treats — where the famous and highly coveted Disneyland Candy Canes are sold during the holidays — will be open for counter service.
One of California Adventure’s iconic dining destinations will be open, too: Carthay Circle Lounge, attached to the fine dining Carthay Circle restaurant, will be serving a new menu of cocktails and food with just-added outdoor dining. Smokejumpers Grill, next to the Soarin’ ride, will also be open.
