Opening is set for late summer for Flying Fish Restaurant at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort at Walt Disney World® Resort. The “Cafe” goes away as part of the name, and you will be welcomed to a sophisticated interior that still pays homage to the golden era of seaside boardwalks.
A new menu will feature sustainable fish, as well as a new Fruits of the Sea appetizer with rock shrimp and clams from Florida, grouper cheek, mussels, a splash of Brandy and a rich lobster stock.
Inside, Flying Fish Restaurant will feature an all-new kitchen and dining room (with expanded space for private dining events), sparkling architectural accents, like golden-winged room panels and an impressive chandelier that mimics a school of flying fish overhead. Next door, the new AbracadaBar lounge will open, taking the spot formerly occupied by Seashore Sweets candy and ice cream shop.
This new “curious cocktail lounge” combines the Golden Age of Magic with the magic of Disney storytelling. From enchanted magic show posters and mystifying mirrors to vintage props and tricks, AbracadaBar promises to be just as surprising and magical as its name suggests.
I’m most intrigued about the AbracadaBar. “Enchanted Magic Show Posters” brings to my mind images of the enchanted artwork on board Disney Cruise Line ships. (For those of you unfamiliar with them, enchanted artwork looks like a normal painting or poster until you stand and look at it for long enough. Then it magically animates in a unique way for each piece of art, and sometimes even interacts with nearby enchanted artwork.)
I’m also wondering if they’ll use any elements from dearly-missed Adventurers Club in the AbracadaBar. I can think of a few things from there that would fit in with the “golden age of magic.” I suppose I’ll find out soon enough, but I really can’t wait for this place to open!
