The Re-Imagined Flying Fish at Disney’s BoardWalk

Earlier this year, Flying Fish Cafe at Disney’s BoardWalk closed for refurbishment. Now, the re-imagined Flying Fish is open!

This refurbishment was nothing less than a huge overhaul. The entire restaurant was gutted (no pun intended), an all-new kitchen and interior was designed, Chef Tim Majoras was promoted, a new menu was created, and the name dropped Cafe – it’s not just Flying Fish.

The decor inside is very different. The whimsical look is completely been replaced with one that is more upscale and contemporary. Overhead, there is a clear-glass chandelier that has been designed to mimic a school of Flying fish with water bubbles. The colors are more earth toned and have a deep blue sea feel to them. There are dark wooden framed chairs, white linens, and deep-blue carpeting.

The Menu

Seafood fans will love the wide range of dishes. There is Maine lobster nero pasta, plancha-seared Hokkaido scallops and other fish and shellfish creations.

The menu will feature more than fish and seafood. Guests who aren’t big fans of what comes from the sea will have entrees like Wagyu filet mignon, bison strip loin, free-range chicken and Kurobuta pork belly to enjoy.

Of course, there are delicious desserts to choose from too. You’ll want to save room for one of these! There is the S’more Time at the Beach, Under the Sea, Florida Reef and other sinfully sweet desserts.

Wine drinkers will be thrilled to hear that there are over 300 types of wine and about 80 of them can be enjoyed by the glass. Those wanting a sampling can order one of the wine flights that are available.

The “Chef’s Counter” has returned and can accommodate up to 12 guests at three tables in front of the kitchen. Guests will enjoy a six-course dinner that has it’s own special menu.

We can’t wait to try this new menu and see this beautiful interior! We’ve already booked our Advanced Dining Reservation.

Flying Fish does accept the Disney Dining Plan and Tables in Wonderland. Reservations can be made online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.

What do you think about the new design and updated menu? Are you excited? We’d love to know what you think!
