Do you have your Advance Dining Reservation to enjoy the Flying Fish as we know it for this, its final week? Though the Flying Fish will reopen later this Fall, its refurbishment — beginning on Monday, February 1st — will bring major changes to this BoardWalk favorite. Not only is the location being “reimagined” with a new look, but the Chef’s Counter experience will offer table seating in order to accommodate more guests.
Even the menu will receive a makeover (though Disney has promised that the Potato-wrapped Snapper and seasonal approach will remain. I’m personally crossing my fingers for the return of my favorite Char-crusted Angus New York Strip Steak).
But Flying Fish isn’t the only BoardWalk eatery that will see some changes. Our friends at AllEars.Net have noted that Seashore Sweets, which is the next-door neighbor of the Flying Fish, will also be closing on February 1st.
And indeed, a Cast Member at Seashore Sweets (which features hand-scooped ice cream alongside favorite Disney confections such as Krispy Treats, English Toffee, and oodles of bulk candy amidst memorabilia from the Miss America Pageant) has confirmed the closure, noting that it has not yet been decided if it will reopen in the Fall along with Flying Fish.
It’s been rumored that the space now taken by Seashore Sweets was originally master-planned to be a shared bar/lounge between the restaurants on either side — currently Trattoria al Forno and Flying Fish Cafe. (That’s why you have to go through Seashore Sweets to get to the shared restroom for both restaurants! Perhaps they’ll finally open that bar/lounge in the space. We’re eager to see!
So if you’re in the area, be sure to stop by this charming little sweets shop and wave goodbye to the Sisters of Seashore Sweets… just in case!
