Update on the Flying Fish refurbishment

So Flying Fish Café has been undergoing a refurbishment. We finally have an update on some of the changes.

Flying Fish Cafe has been renamed Flying Fish

First, it’s now Flying Fish. The cafe part has been dropped. It makes sense because rarely did anyone ever say the “cafe” part of the name. Most people just called it Flying Fish.

The kitchen is now under the care of Chef Time Majoas. He’s been at Flying Fish since 2011, but now he’s taking the reigns. Some of the menu items that will be featured on the new menu include seared yellow fin tuna served with compressed watermelon (with a hint of Tahitian lime oil and fresh limes), paper-thin avocado slices, crisp radishes, pickled daikon and a small edible viola flower on top and a drizzle of blood orange oil. Also guests will want to try Fruits of the Sea appetizer – rock shrimp and clams from Florida, grouper cheek, mussels, a splash of Brandy and a rich lobster stock served over celery root puree.

Guests will enjoy new dishes at Flying Fish at Disney's BoardWalk

The restaurant will have an all new kitchen and dining room. The dining room will have golden-winged room panels and a beautiful chandelier that looks like a school of flying fish.

In the former location of the candy and ice cream shop (that’s right, it’s gone) will be AbracadaBar. The new loung will be well themed. According to Walt Disney Imaineering it was a secret place for traveling magicians and local boardwalk illusionists. In addition to exchanging tricks of the trade, they’d conjure up new cocktails here. Here’s where the story gets interesting… one evening about 70 years ago, all the magicians vanished. After all this time it’s up and running again. Guests will get a sneak peak at this once magical lounge and enjoy the bar’s signature cocktails.

Pam Brandon promises to share the menus and opening dates with us soon. We can’t wait!

Are you looking forward to the changes at Flying Fish? We’d love to know what you want to stay the same and what changed.
