    Why isnt the Aladins Oasis restaurant open?

    I remember eating there when it was the Hawaiian restaurant. Disneyland seems to have a shortage of nice places to sit and have a meal, plus a dinner show would be awesome. Why in the world is this place just sitting there unused?

    The kitchen that used to be there was completely taken out.

    It's also used as a small show now...Aladdin and Jasmine's Storytelling or something.

    Trust me, we've all been complaining that the area needs to be used in a better way, particularly for a restaraunt.

    I never ate there when it was the Tahitian Terrace, but did when it was Aladin's Oasis. I have to day I do miss it because the food wasn't half bad and it did give you a chance to sit down and relax. It was before I was diabetic and I remember the chocolate lamp desert ... chocolate lamp shell with chocolate mousse inside and some rasperry sauce ... so yummy!

    It is not up to code. The amount of money required to both bring it up to code, and install a new kitchen, and relocate the auxillarly AP Processing center would be huge. There were plans to do this in preperation for the 50th, but those fell through.
    The budget is probably being eaten now by whatever is exactly going to be going on with Bengal Barbeque/Riverbell Terrace.

    Couldn't be as much as it cost to bring back the subs, AND, you have to pay to see the show so it would make some money back eventually.

    That was such a nice place. Fun dinner show, and tasty food. I was really bummed when the restaurant closed.

    Re: Why isnt the Aladins Oasis restaurant open?

    Aladdin's Oasis was pretty expensive when it opened. The prices easily rivaled Blue Bayou. And as it turned out, theme park guests weren't too eager to try Middle Eastern food.

    As for bringing it back, I think it would be nice to bring back Tahitian Terrace, but probably not very practical. I think Disneyland has enough restaurant capacity with their current lineup, and I would hate for them to spend a fortune to open another restaurant which would just end up serving crappy food.

    ^ Well the other lands may have sit down restaurants and tables & chairs to eat, but Adventureland only really has Dole Whips, Bengal BBQ, and the snacks at Jungle Crusie exit. That's all the eating options for Adventureland.

    True Adventureland may not have a lot restaurants, but, really, NOS isn't that far away. How many places in NOS sell food? Main Street as a few places too.

    All of Disneyland is so close, I don't know if each and every land needs it's own restaurant.
