But select dining spots have not yet reopened or have been serving slightly modified meals. Well now Disney has shared some BIG news about restaurant re-openings, returning buffets, and other dining info!
Today Disney announced that several restaurants will be reopening soon in Disney World and many will be serving NEW dishes! Disney has also shared that some buffets will be coming back! Here’s what you need to know:
First, over at Disney’s BoardWalk, Flying Fish will be reopening on January 27th! Guests will get to enjoy all kinds of signature seafood dishes here, as well as steak offerings and some new treats. So far Disney has shared that guests will get to munch on the Seafood Pearl Pasta as an entree at this spot. This dish will feature shrimp, lobster, scallops, clams, and mussels. There will also be Plancha-seared Scallops, which comes with grits, sweet corn, and Peppadew emulsion.
And if you’re ready for dessert the Cocoa Breach will be back, which in the past has featured Vanilla Custard, Milk Chocolate Bavarois, and Feuilletine Crunch.
The Turf Club Bar and Grill
Next, over at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, The Turf Club Bar and Grill will be reopening on February 3rd. Guests will be able to enjoy various dishes at this spot including the new New York Cider-braised Mussels appetizer which is “flavored with garlic, chorizo, fennel, Fresno chili, and apple cider topped with a grilled baguette.”
Some new entrees will also join the lineup including The Grilled Pork Chop and Braised Lamb Tagliatelle. And you can end your meal with a dessert, like the new New York Cheesecake.
Jiko — The Cooking Place
