Last year the Disneyland Resort announced that it would close several restaurants and the theaters in Downtown Disney because they were building a new luxury hotel that will be located between the existing Disneyland Hotel and the Downtown Disney monorail station. The new hotel is scheduled to open sometime in 2021.
Disney has confirmed that the AMC Theaters, Rainforest Cafe, westside Starbucks, Earl of Sandwich, and the ESPN Zone all will close by June 30. Disney has also stated that this does not mean that all of the locations will remain open through the end of June, some may close before that.
All of the locations must close by the deadline because demolition will begin shortly after June 30.
