Downtown Disney® District Unveils Plans For Two New Dining Locations
Popular Entertainment District to Add Tortilla Jo’s and Jamba Juice
Downtown Disney District, the bustling entertainment, dining and retail district at the Disneyland® Resort, announced plans for two new restaurants as part of ongoing efforts to provide a variety of dining and entertainment options to its guests. Joining the lineup are Tortilla Jo’s, an authentic Mexican restaurant and Jamba Juice, a healthy alternative featuring blended-to-order smoothies, snacks and soups. Both of these are added on the heels of the latest restaurant to open in Downtown Disney, Napolini, a quick-serve Italian kitchen.
“Downtown Disney is a continuously growing part of the Disneyland Resort,” said Randy Baumberger, senior vice-president of resort operations and sales at the Disneyland Resort. “Tortilla Jo’s and Jamba Juice are two diverse options added to the growing collection of unique dining locations we feature at Downtown Disney, and we look forward to providing the same high-quality service and surroundings our guests have come to expect.”
Centrally located in Downtown Disney, Tortilla Jo’s is set to open in March 2004. Exuding the ultimate spirit of Mexico, the restaurant emphasizes casual family dining at a great value. With lively nighttime entertainment and expansive areas available for entertaining, the restaurant is sure to become a hot destination for the late night crowd, as well as a lively special events venue.
Designed to accommodate a range of tastes and hungers, the restaurant features an expansive main dining room, seating 150, serving an authentic mixture of Mexican culinary traditions and a second floor accommodating 70 guests inside and 90 on the patio. The convenient over-the-counter taqueria stand, resembling an authentic street vendor taqueria stand, will appeal to those seeking a quick bite to eat and grab & go, and the open-air cantina will offer a casual bar atmosphere with spirited food and will accommodate up to 60 people.
Menu offerings will feature the best in Mexican cuisine, including a hand-made tamale and tortilla station, tableside guacamole preparation and a rotisserie oven.
Serving blended-to-order smoothies and healthy snacks, Jamba Juice features a convenient and nutritious dining alternative. Slated for a mid-November 2003 opening, Jamba Juice will be located near the World of Disney.
Nutrient-rich concoctions include freshly squeezed juices, fruit, vegetables, nonfat frozen yogurt, dairy-free sorbet, ice, and exclusive Juice Boosts – nutritional supplements designed to provide a variety of benefits. Established in 1990, Jamba Juice has more than 350 company and franchised/licensed stores in 24 states nationwide and the District of Columbia.
It’s a whole new world of magic at the Disneyland Resort, featuring two theme parks, an entertainment district and three hotels. All within walking distance are: Walt Disney’s original theme park, Disneyland, “The Happiest Place on Earth”; Disney’s California Adventure™, a salute to California through Disney storytelling; Downtown Disney District, a public esplanade of dining, family entertainment and shopping; the luxurious 745-room Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel®; the 502-room Disney’s Paradise Piersm Hotel; and the 990-room Disneyland Hotel.
