Anaheim, CA -- While the announced departure of McDonald's from Disney's theme parks has made headlines a lesser known, but finer dining experience will also be leaving Disney's California Adventure.
The Vineyard Room, the last of three fine dining experiences at Disney's California Adventure park, will be closing at the end of this month.
The Vineyard Room is one of the lesser-known restaurants in Disney's California Adventure because of the upstairs location and limited operating days. The restaurant was originally sponsored and operated by Robert Mondavi Wines.
Located upstairs in the Golden Vine Winery the Vineyard Room serves pasta, seafood and gourmet salads paired with fine wine. An 18-foot California plein-air mural is part of the décor of this upscale restaurant.
While the current concept may be ending, sources sayt that Disney plans to continue to use the space for a restaurant. The plan calls for an expansion of the popular Wine Country Trattoria restaurant downstairs, into the space currently occupied by The Vineyard Room..
The Vineyard Room is the last of three fine-dining, full-service restaurants within the theme park. The other two, the ABC Soap Opera Bistro in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot closed and Avalon Cove by Wolfgang Puck in Paradise Pier has been converted into Disney Character Dining. The upstairs Avalon Cove bar however remains sans the Wolfgang Puck sponsorship.
