5 Reasons To Go to Tomorrowland Terrace Even Though It’s Closed

By admin Apr22,2024

Tomorrowland Terrace used to be a quick-service spot in Magic Kingdom, but it’s been closed for years now.

Tomorrowland Terrace

Previously, it was a tasty counter service spot away from the crowds. Now, it sits closed MOST of the time. It still opens for fireworks dessert parties, but other than that, it’s just a large empty restaurant sitting on the outskirts of Tomorrowland. But this deserted spot may have more uses than you think!

Great Spot to Work

If you’re like us and you bring your work WITH you into Magic Kingdom for a change of scenery (because why not?), Tomorrowland Terrace is a great option.

Tomorrowland Terrace seating

You’ll be (most likely) totally alone, but with the soundscape of the Magic Kingdom park around you while you work. We do recommend only doing this during the cooler months though, because while it’s shaded, it’s still outside and doesn’t have AC.

Quiet Spot for a Break

If you or someone in your party is sensitive to loud noises, and crowds, and overall just gets overstimulated while in Disney World, Tomorrowland Terrace is a fantastic place to take a quick, quiet breather.

Beautiful view!

Again, you’ll likely be in there totally alone (or with someone who is just working on their computer). You can take however long you need in the shade and quiet to relax and center yourself. Never be ashamed of this — Disney World is a LOT and it’s important to take breaks so you don’t burn yourself out!


As we said before, there is plenty of shade in Tomorrowland Terrace, and that’s a little hard to come by in other areas of Tomorrowland.

Tons of shade!

While there’s no AC in this area, being right out of the sun’s light can DRASTICALLY help you cool off quickly. It’s also a great place to reapply some sunscreen real quick or chug some water to keep yourself hydrated.

Use It as a Dining Spot!

While this restaurant doesn’t serve food themselves anymore, you can bring food from other locations and eat it here!

It’s a great place to sit!

Other restaurants in Magic Kingdom don’t have a ton of seating, or it’s all outdoors (ahem, Casey’s Corner). Instead of trying to find a seat there, walk a few extra minutes and get yourself a seat away from the sun. You can also eat the snacks/lunch you’ve brought from home!

People Watching at its Finest

If you want to take a break from the crowds and instead WATCH the crowds from far away, this is the place to do it.

You can see A LOT from here!

From here, you have a fantastic view of part of Main Street U.S.A. as well as the Hub/Cinderella Castle area, which sees a LOT of activity. If you’re waiting for a Lightning Lane reservation and want something entertaining to do without having to wait in line, don’t underestimate this activity! You can sit down in the shade and people-watch to your heart’s content.
