January 7, 2015 – The Taste Pilots’ Grill Closes in Disney’s California Adventure
“Where Great Food IS Rocket Science!”
On January 7, 2015, the Taste Pilots’ Grill closed in Disney’s California Adventure Park’s Condor Flats area. The quick service restaurant opened on February 8, 2001, and offered American-style fare with flight-based puns for names, such as the Alpha-Bravo-Chili Burger, the Hot Wing Squadron, and the Aer-O-Space Onion Rings. The restaurant was themed after a desert airfield, but seemed to be out of place in the park. After the restaurant closed, the place was reopened as the Smokejumpers Grill, and was merged with the Grizzly Peak area.
