Breaking News: Paddlefish at Disney Springs to Open February 4th
Paddlefish in Disney Springs has been one of the most anticipated and talked about restaurant openings in a long time! The wait is OVER!! Disney Parks Blog just announced this restaurant featuring a “seafood-centric menu” is set to open on February 4th! Paddlefish will feature seafood favorites such as delectable Maine lobster, King and Snow crabs and a selection of fresh fish including sea bass, catfish and salmon.

Adding to the spectacular dining lineup at Disney Springs, Paddlefish will open Feb. 4 following a multimillion-dollar transformation and a seafood-centric menu that includes a few guest favorites from the former Fulton’s Crab House.
The iconic paddleboat at Disney Springs has been reimagined into a modern yacht experience by Levy Restaurants, with clean lines, crisp designs, refined woods and a sophisticated color pallet of blues and grays.
And what would accompany delicious seafood better than a great and tasty beverage? Read on, my friends and find out!
From Disney Parks Blog: We caught up with General Manager Jimmy Kraus as they prepare for opening. The bow-to-stern transformation of the iconic riverboat will include a new third-floor deck for late-night tastes and sips.
What’s distinctive about the beverage program?
We dug deep to find rare and amazing wines and spirits as well as familiar classics. We chose everything with respect for pairing. Some of our wine varietals may be new to some folks. And on our cocktail list you’ll find concoctions that you won’t find anywhere else in Disney Springs. We hope to appeal to both the newbie and the connoisseur.
Tell us more about the special cocktails.
We’re going for diversity through great ingredients. We’ll have a margarita, but it will have a twist. Our sangria is a “man’s sangria” with bourbon, tempranillo [wine] and a French peach liqueur that takes it over the top.
Is there a signature cocktail?
The Lily Spritz, an homage to The Empress Lily, the original restaurant located where Paddlefish will be. It’s a simple cocktail with complexity and balance, made with cava, rosé, fresh strawberry and a splash of seltzer. Our guests at Fulton’s loved the connection that the historic riverboat makes.
How many wines on the list?
We’ll feature 175 wines, about 24 by the glass. From a wine-list aspect, we are highlighting small, family-owned estates – I love the stories from these winemakers. We have three certified sommeliers on staff, and are trusting our palates and experience to create a substantial, well-rounded wine program. And we would love the chance to let our guests try something unique.
