Brief History of Downtown Restaurant

As I mentioned in the introduction, Downtown restaurant opened to the public on April 12th, 1992, the same day as the Euro Disney Resort (the original designation of Disneyland Paris). At that time, Disney Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel was called Disney’s Hotel New York – the name maintained until June 21st, 2021.

The Disney Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel is, since 2021, known as the “Marvel” hotel, the famous New York publisher of superhero comics. The hotel’s renovation aims to pay homage to all the characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, even though most of the details invoke Spider-Man and Iron Man.

How To Eat At Downtown Restaurant

Downtown restaurant is open every day from 6 pm to 11 pm, with the last entry at 10:45 pm. And although you don’t need to be staying at the Disney Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel to be able to dine at Downtown, a stay at this hotel doesn’t guarantee you a table without a reservation at the buffet!

In fact, I advise you to book a table in advance – something you can do up to 2 months (or 12 months, if you have a stay booked at a Disney hotel) before your arrival date! To do this, all you have to do is download the Disneyland Paris app, available on Google Play and the App Store. Then create an account and start choosing your favorite restaurants with table reservations!

Alternatively, you can call the Disneyland Paris Restaurant Reservation Center at +33 1 60 30 40 50. But don’t forget that local call rates apply and may vary depending on your telecom operator.

TIP: Do you want to celebrate your birthday at Downtown restaurant? Then you can order your birthday cake when booking! This dessert costs €35 and serves up to 8 people.

The all-you-can-eat buffet costs €45 (adults) and includes a cold drink (33cl) or mineral water (50cl); or €25 (children from 3 to 11 years old, inclusive), with a Vittel (33cl), an Orange or Apple Minute Maid, or Milk (20cl).

The cold drink for adults can be Coke Original, Coke Zero, or Coke Cherry; or Fanta Orange (33 cl), Fuze Tea Intense Peach, Tropico Tropical, or Minute Maid Orange or Apple (25cl). There are also mineral waters such as Vittel or San Pellegrino (50cl and 100cl), or Perrier (33cl).

In addition to cold drinks and mineral waters, there are other drinks that adults can consume at Downtown restaurant, such as draft beers, bottled beers, white, red, or rosé wines, etc.

WARNING: Downtown restaurant opening hours, prices, and menu may change on December 24th and 31st!

What To Eat At Downtown Restaurant

If you search for Downtown on the Disneyland Paris website or app, you’ll notice that this all-you-can-eat buffet is promoted as an American, Italian, Vegetarian, and Vegan restaurant.

In my opinion, Downtown restaurant offers a reasonable number of vegetarian and vegan dishes. However, I found very few Chinese dishes and they were almost all main dishes or side dishes (not starters or desserts, for example).

Check out the menu of Downtown restaurant on Disneyland Paris’s official website!

Do you follow a specific diet or do you have special dietary needs? Downtown restaurant serves sealed and certified halal and kosher dishes, as well as dishes and menus without the main allergens.

Just don’t forget to contact +33 1 60 30 40 50 (international call rates apply) at least 48 hours in advance, so you can order your meal.


At first glance, Downtown restaurant doesn’t seem to have much to offer as far as starters are concerned. Nevertheless, if you add bread, cheeses, and salads to this section of the buffet, the number increases significantly!

These are the starters you can try at Downtown restaurant:

  • Butter
  • Garlic Bread
  • Green Curry, Coconut Milk, and Lemongrass Soup
  • Italian Dried Ham

  • Olive Mix (VEGAN)
  • Roast Ham with Herbs

Bread & Cheeses

Did you know that in France cheese is served after the main course and before dessert? This happens because the French consider cheese to be very high in calories, which can spoil your appetite for the main course!

However, in countries like Portugal, Spain, or Italy, cheese is seen as the perfect starter to stimulate the palate before the main course. For that reason, it’s common to find cheese boards – and charcuterie, on certain occasions – which are almost always accompanied by bread or toast.

These are the bread and cheeses you can try at Downtown restaurant:

  • Breadsticks
  • Cantal Cheese
  • DOP Brie de Meaux Cheese
  • Sainte Maure Cendré Cheese
  • Tomme Noire Cheese


If you thought that Downtown restaurant had little variety of salads, then think again! Every day, there are over ten salads or similar selections – including vegetarian and vegan alternatives!

Main Courses & Side Dishes

American cuisine reflects the cultural diversity that marks the history of the United States, with European, Asian, African, South American, and Polynesian influences. Hence, current ingredients and cooking methods are very different from those used by the first Native Americans.

Downtown restaurant presents a range of main courses and side dishes based on specialties from two large Manhattan neighborhoods: Little Italy and Chinatown.
