6 Things You Will Love About The Boathouse At Disney Springs

The Boathouse is one of the newer added restaurants to Disney Springs. It is a bit on the pricey side compared to other restaurants on Disney property, but is one that is extremely well worth it. Here are 6 things that you will love about The Boathouse:


6. Surf and turf menu

The restaurant has a wide array of seafood, premium steaks and other high-quality meat selections that are absolutely delicious. The food is off the highest quality and some of the freshest on property. The prices are fairly high, but worth every penny. The menu is long a long list of appetizers and salads, along with over 20 entrée options made of up sandwiches, pastas, seafood, steaks, etc. This is definitely a restaurant that has something for everyone and will meet the needs of all kinds of taste buds and preferences. Don’t forget to save room for dessert, since those are delicious, too! I highly recommend that you try the crab cakes and the lobster macaroni and cheese! Both are absolutely amazing! For dessert, you don’t want to miss the S’mores Baked Alaska! It is on my list of top desserts on property for sure!

5. Amazing cocktails

This place is also known for the nightlife, which means a long menu of cocktails that are exclusive to the restaurant. This is a great place to unwind and enjoy a drink with friends and family while you are on vacation. The restaurant actually boasts 3 different bars. The bars are the Captain’s Raw Bar, the Admiral’s Club Bar or the Dock Bar. You can feel like you are enjoying a different location each time you visit!

4. Fun, atmosphere

The location at Disney Springs is a great place to hang out and enjoy a delicious meal. You are in the middle of all the shopping and beautiful scenery in the area. The restaurant is newer and located in a newly defined section, so it is all top-notch and immaculate. The lake behind the restaurant and the perfect nautical theme make you feel like you really are at the boat house and would board a boat at any time to go out and catch you dinner. It is a great place for to enjoy with your family, go on a date night or party with friends!

3. Water experiences

Right next to the restaurant is a boat ramp for launching amazing tours. You can board the Amphicar where you can go for a 20-minute tour of the lakes around Disney Springs with your family. It is one of the most unique experiences that you can have all over Walt Disney World Resort. It is pretty expensive, too, so you will definitely want to take care to fit this one into your budget if it is something that you are interested in. You can also get on one of the guide boats for a private tour and champagne toast with that special someone. So much fun and amazing memories can be made with a delicious meal before or after.


2. Evening entertainment

The nightlight at Disney Springs is booming! The restaurant is located very close to one of the mini amphitheaters where you can hear amazing talent and performances from all types of artists and musical styles. This makes the night life and drinks a lot of fun. Many of these performances also take place during the day, especially on the weekends, so you never know what you may see while you enjoy your amazing meal and drinks. It’s a great place to relax and be entertained.

1. Waterside dining

The restaurant and bar areas have many seats that are on the water or at least provide great water views. You get a nice cool breeze and overlook the water. It is absolutely stunning and one of the most relaxing dining places to hang out and enjoy. If you want a true waterside location to enjoy, this is definitely it.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
