Last week, Disney Parks Blog author Pam Brandon shared details on what guests can expect to find on the menu when Flying Fish restaurant reopens at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort this month.

This week, our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering shared some new details on the enhanced storyline and design guests can expect to experience at the restaurant. Situated at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort, Flying Fish celebrates the heyday of luxury seaside resorts and boardwalks of yesteryear.

The inspiration for the fresh design is none other than the beloved flying fish of Disney’s BoardWalk, which are subtly suggested throughout the location – from upholstery patterns to kitchen tiles.

Be sure to check out the restaurant’s sparkling architectural accents, which include golden-winged room panels and a glittering chandelier that mimics a school of flying fish swimming overhead.

The restaurant also features boardwalk-inspired mementos like carnival art, vintage games, and a nod to the legendary “Flying Turns” rollercoaster.


  • It looks beautiful, and while the new menu looks exciting, we’re going to miss the potato crusted snapper. Hope to be able to visit on our next trip.

  • Does the new Flying Fish still have the counter seating around the kitchen and is the Chef’s Table dinner still being offered? Thanks.
