Is An EPCOT Restaurant Closing Next Month? We Investigate.

When it comes to great dining, it’s hard to beat EPCOT.


Rose & Crown

Where else can you eat around the world without even leaving the park? Want Canadian-inspired food? Visit Le Cellier. Craving  crepes? Head to La Crêperie de Paris in France. Morrocan? Spice Road Table is serving up delicious dishes in Morroco. If it’s classic British food, though, you’ll want to dine at Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room in the U.K. However, you may not be able to dine there soon!

Thanks to our reader Callie for the heads up! So here’s what we’re seeing. We checked for available reservations at Rose & Crown for July 13th — there are plenty available until that date.



However, there was nothing available for the next day, July 14th:



We also checked for reservations all the way through August 10th (60 days from now), and nothing was available.



So what does this mean? Well, Disney has not released details as to why this might be the case, but based on past instances like this, the restaurant might be closing for a refurbishment. However, the restaurant went through a refurbishment in spring of 2021.

Disney still has hours listed for the Rose & Crown Dining Room from July 14th to as far as the calendar goes out.



Something else to note is that it wasn’t listed as one of the restaurants available for Eat to the Beat Dining packages for the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, which starts on July 14th — the first day reservations are unavailable at Rose & Crown. Again, Disney has not commented on what is going on with Rose & Crown in July, but we’ll let you know about any closures or refurbs!


Is it temporarily closing?

If Rose & Crown does happen to close in July and you’ve got a hankering for British food — you still have a choice. You can order the delicious Fish and Chips from the Yorkshire County Fish Shop, along with a glass of your favorite U.K. beverage.

You can also head on over to Disney Springs to visit Raglan Road for some Irish fare, along with some fun Irish music and dancing. Or pick up some great Fish and Chips to-go from Cookes of Dublin.

We’ll let you know if we get any more details about what’s going on with Rose & Crown, so stay tuned to DFB for more!
