After reporting that Disney Springs in Walt Disney World would be reopening on May 20, the next question for me was: Would The Boathouse restaurant be part of that first-day fun? The answer is: Yes!
As announced on May 15 via The Boathouse Facebook page:
“We are thrilled to announce that The Boathouse will be opening with Disney Springs on May 20th at 11am. We will also be opening our Vintage Amphicar rides and The Boathouse Boatique at the same time. We have opened our reservation book and all reservations will be guaranteed inside seating. We will seat the inside dining rooms at a 25% capacity, so reservations will be limited.”
It also was noted, “We have taken extra precautions to ensure the safety of our staff and customers. With everyone's cooperation we will be able to maintain a safe and comfortable environment.”
Why the excitement? Well, check out my review of The Boathouse – “Restaurant Review: You Must Eat at The Boathouse” – in which I closed out by writing, “The Boathouse now ranks among my favorite restaurants, and not just in Walt Disney World, but among restaurants I’ve experienced across the nation.”
But if you doubt me, then take the word of Lou Mongello, host of the WDW Radio Podcast. Lou, of course, is one of the all-time Disney, Disney food, and food in general experts. Listen to his review of The Boathouse – “WDW Radio Show #448 – Live Review of The Boathouse in Disney Springs.”
Yes, The Boathouse is another reason to look forward to Disney Springs beginning its reopening on May 20.
