Beloved Disney Restaurant Is Closing After 22 Years

Disney fans can't visit the "happiest place on Earth"—Disneyland—without trying some of the park's treats.

Disney offers an astonishing array of food options, from corn dogs to beignets to the Dole Whip. Downtown Disney is a quieter place to rest after Splash Mountain or enjoy an adult beverage.

Downtown Disney has fast-food and "four-star" eateries. Downtown Disney is free, unlike Disneyland, which charges exorbitant fees.

Like the rest of Disney, this sector is continuously evolving, and one of its longest-running eateries will close on April 14 to make room for a new idea.

Catal Restaurant, a sophisticated Mediterranean restaurant, has served the neighborhood since 2001.

Its food and balcony made it one of Downtown Disney's fanciest spots. Michelin-starred chef's upmarket Mexican restaurant will replace Catal.

"Toast to the laughs, the memories, and the meals," Catal said on Instagram as it closed. People posted their greatest restaurant memories and sadness over its demise.

They grieved the restaurant's ahi tostadas and their "romantic Disney restaurant" date-night spot. "Excellent meal, drinks and service in DTD...sad I won't get to enjoy it again," commented another.

Chef & Centrico restaurant will deliver enhanced Mexican cuisine influenced by chef's childhood in Mexico.

There will be more newcomers. Porto's Cuban bakery and Din Tai Fung, one of the greatest Chinese restaurants in the U.S., will replace La Brea Bakery.
