Blog - November 16, 2016

I received a complimentary dining experience to facilitate this article.  All opinions are my own.

We are the typical Florida family who likes to frequent the theme parks at least once a year.  But we have requirements for ourselves too.  It’s not all about the kids as this trip is an escape from our busy lives also.

We always stay close to Disney Springs to have access to it whenever we want.  In the last year, they have made some major renovations which gives us even more reason to visit! One of the things we enjoy the most when visiting Disney Springs is discovering restaurants.

We found one that blew us away and have made it our number one priority to visit every time we go to Disney Springs.  There are four reasons for this:

1. Location

Location is everything to us and we absolutely love Disney Springs.  There are many reasons we enjoy it, but the main reason is that it offers a variety of places to eat.  We hadn’t been to Disney Springsin a year and what a transformation!  A few new restaurants, but more notable are the many new shops like Anthropologie and Sephora.  Lipstick is always a reason for me to go back, ha ha.  The Disney theme without the madness of a regular mall is perfect for families who want something different after the theme parks.   We also want a little luxury for ourselves.  That’s why we loved The Boathouse Orlando.  It was like going on vacation from Disney and indulging in another mini getaway, where dining takes on a whole new meaning.

2. Experience and Atmosphere

I recommend sitting outside.  This was our view and it is a scene that one doesn’t often get to experience.  Sure, anyone can sit outside and look at vintage boats, but this is an escape to the 1950’s surrounded by shiny vintage luxury boats of all kinds, each one being unique with its different mounts and colors.

The beautiful display of boats will have you getting up from your table and walking around.   The view from the restaurant is stunning, enhancing the dining experience in a way that can’t be duplicated.  It’s a one of a kind opportunity.

3. Menu

Nothing says fancy and refreshing like a Gin Fizz, especially at The BOATHOUSE®.  They know how to make their drinks!

The menu has such a wide range of items on it from the Raw Bar to a Filet Mignon Oscar Style.

Our appetizer was decadent…perfect for two.

Desserts

I don’t share my desserts.  I might even order two but the Apple Crisp and Vanilla Ice Cream was amazing!  However, I ordered whipped cream on the side just to send me over the edge.  That might be a British thing.  We like cream on everything!  I recommend a side of cream with the Apple Crisp.  The brown sugar crumble just melts in your mouth.  It was delicious and perfect for the season.

4. Vintage Amphicar Tours of Disney Springs

We had so much fun as a family on the Amphicar Tour.  This is truly one of a kind experience that shouldn’t be missed.   Imagine driving into the water and then sailing off around Disney Springs for twenty minutes and then driving back on land!

Dining at The BOATHOUSE® in Disney Springs™ is a “must see” if you are visiting Disney Springs™ whether your dining outside next to the beautiful vintage boats, listening to live music or inside where there’s a hustle and bustle and a chance you could be dining inside a vintage boat!  Whichever way you decide to dine, the fantastic service stays the same.  They are on their toes, always making recommendations so that your dining experience is memorable. There is also private dining available.
