The upcoming Ale & Compass Restaurant at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is opening on November 21, 2017!
While the Disney World website displays November 26th as the first date you’re able to make an Advance Dining Reservation for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner at this spot, we’ve been told that in fact November 21st will be the grand opening! This location will be the flagship offering of the new Ale & Compass dining concept for the Deluxe Resort.
So… wanna know what you’ll be eating at this “gastropub-inspired restaurant” focused on New England comfort food 🙂 ? Let’s take a peek at those menus!!
For starters let’s check out what’s for Breakfast, where Salted Caramel-Apple French Toast, a Cornbread Waffle and a Smoked Trout Spread make for some unique offerings.
The almost-complete Breakfast Cocktail menu lists a couple of Bloody Marys, including one with a Lobster Claw for garnish. And the other features “Yacht Club Vodka.”
And here are the morning eats for the kiddos!
Lobster and Corn Chowder is a potential starter for your New England comfort food Lunch…
Entrees — or Main Plates — will feature a selection of savory Pies from the restaurant’s centerpiece, the Hearth Oven. And a Grilled Plant-based “Bacon Cheeseburger” is an option for our vegetarian (and possibly vegan) friends.
Desserts feature a Black Walnut Pavlova, among other choices. And I wonder what those mix-ins will be with the puddings! But…um…why is “curd” in quotes on that lemon meringue pie? And why would I want pickled blueberries with it? Hmm… .
I wonder if the refurbished Ale & Compass Lounge will feature similar Cocktails, like the Spicy Pomegranate Margarita?
Kids’ options include both Mickey Check Meals (for healthier selections) and regular entrees.
Can I try one of the Mini Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwiches from the Kids’ Desserts, even if I’m older than 9 years old, please 🙂 ? (Note, we’re guessing this will be changed to macaron on the Disney menu, soon. It’s usually Disney’s MO to put “macaroon” on the menu and then later change it to macaron.)
The dinner menu expands on the Lunch Starters list with options for those Hearth Oven Pies.
Main Plates look to feature a signature Coastal Clambake and what looks to be another vegan item, the Protein Bowl.
Currently, the Dinner Cocktails, Desserts, and Childrens’ selections match the Lunch offerings.
The Ale & Compass Restaurant will accept the Disney Dining Plan. Will you be making a reservation to dine there? I know I’m looking forward to it!
