1900 Park Fare will officially be welcoming folks once again on April 10th, 2024 and we happen to be pretty darn excited! But, Disney announced that the reopening will come with some changes, and fans aren’t too happy about that.

Disney shared that “An enchanting buffet will be served for breakfast and dinner, featuring some returning guest favorites — yes, that includes the strawberry soup! — along with new menu offerings dreamed up by our talented chefs to pay tribute to some of the characters and stories you’ll encounter throughout the restaurant.”

We also learned that new characters would be coming to this restaurant which seems to be the crux of the complaints.

Back before 1900 Park Fare closed for the pandemic, diners could enjoy the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast — this allowed folks to dine and eat with characters like Mary Poppins, Cinderella, Prince Charming, and Winnie the Pooh.

But, as part of the new theming, you’ll be able to meet Aladdin in his Prince Ali look, CinderellaMirabel, and Tiana in her new look for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

When we polled our readers, a majority were against this character update — saying that the new characters don’t fit the theme of the restaurant or hotel at all. In recent years, much of the Grand Floridian has been updated to reflect more Mary Poppins theming, and people seem to be upset that she won’t be part of the character lineup.

No matter how you feel about the characters, the fact that 1900 Park Fare is reopening at all is welcome news.
