Earlier today, it was reported that Steakhouse 55, a high-end restaurant at the Disneyland Hotel, would not be reopening. Instead, the restaurant would be shuttering its doors permanently and Disneyland Resort officials are considering what will take over the space. Now, it seems that Steakhouse 55 is not the only Disneyland Resort restaurant to meet that fate.
Today, Disneyland Resort also announced that the PCH Grill at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel would also be closing permanently. The news was reported by The Orange County Register:
The beachy and seaside-inspired PCH Grill offered up Disney character buffet breakfast and brunch along with an Italian dinner buffet.
PCH Grill employees were told the restaurant will be taken over by an operating participant and will no longer be a Disney-operated location.
The move to permanently close PCH Grill also seems to be confirmed in a Google search — the restaurant shows up as “Permanently Closed” when searching for information on it.
Unfortunately, the closure of Disney’s PCH Grill also means the closure of some character dining. Before the pandemic shutdown, Guests could make reservations at the PCH Grill for Donald’s Seaside Breakfast and, on weekends, Donald’s Seaside Brunch featuring the original angry bird and some of his famous friends.
Donald’s Seaside Breakfast let kids, and kids at heart, enjoy a delicious meal and meet some of their favorite Disney characters, who would be visiting in their best beach attire!

While Donald’s Seaside Breakfast and Brunch will no longer be available at the PCH Grill, it is possible that Disney could choose to relocate the character meal — and maybe even decide to give it a retheme to better fit into a new space.
There is currently no word as to what restaurant will take over or when Disney hopes to have another restaurant operating out of the space. Disney’s PCH Grill has been closed since the theme parks were forced to shut down because of the pandemic in March 2020.
