Flying Fish Cafe has been closed for a little while now. It is being refurbed with a new menu, new decorations, new lounge, and also a new name.
Don’t worry about the name change; it’s not like Fulton’s Crab House changing to Paddlefish. According to Disney Parks Blog, the restaurant will just be losing the “Cafe” part of the name. So it will just be known as Flying Fish. Not a huge change.
With a new chef will come new menu items. Though he has been at the restaurant since 2011, this is the first time Chef Tim Majoras will be taking charge in the kitchen. According to the article, sustainable fish will be the focal point of the menu, but you can also expect to see new appetizers.
When the restaurant reopens there will be a new kitchen and dining room. The new dining area will have a large chandelier that will look like a school of fish swimming above the diners.
The newest addition to the restaurant will be the AbracadaBar lounge, in the former Seashore Sweets location. The theme here, obviously, will have to do with magic. The story is that this was a place where magicians would gather after their shows, but 70 years ago everyone in the lounge vanished. They lounge was vacant for all these years, just recently being reopened.
There is no opening date or official menu yet, but we will keep you updated when more information is released.
I’m excited for the refurbished restaurant and the new lounge, though I do miss Seashore Sweets.
Are you excited for these changes?
