We’re seeing more and more experiences make a return to Walt Disney World Resort after months-long closure due to phased reopening after the COVID pandemic. We recently shared the exciting news that Disney’s Port Orleans Resort has officially reopened. With the Resort once again welcoming Guests, we’ve loved the return of Yehaa Bob Jackson at River Roost Lounge and of course, the Mickey-shaped beignets are back! Now, Disney has revealed a fan-favorite Disney restaurant is making a return.

Disney Parks Blog has shared the exciting news with: “Enjoy the flavors of the Louisiana bayou with the all-you-care-to-enjoy Chef’s Platter featuring ribs, Nashville hot chicken, smoked sausage, and barbecued beef brisket with mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, street corn, and green beans. Have you been craving General Fulton’s Prime Rib or the Deep-South Shrimp and Grits? They are back as well as the signature Boatwright’s Jambalaya and the plant-based Boatwright’s Harvest Jambalaya. And for a touch of Southern sweetness, be sure to order up the Mississippi Mud Crème Brûlée, a decadent chocolate brûlée with a chocolate shortbread cookie.”

Disney’s website describes Boatwright’s with:

Bona Fide Bites in the Big Easy: Partake in hearty specialties and family-friendly American fare inspired by Southern Louisiana cookin’ on the bayou. Hanging lanterns illuminate the cavernous dining hall, and the skeletal hull of a lugger fishing boat is suspended on high as its centerpiece. Warm yourself by the fire as you spy antique shipbuilding tools on the walls: C-clamps, saw blades, axes and more. Sample the tantalizing flavors of the Louisiana bayou on the All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Chef’s Platter—featuring such lip-smackin’ favorites as ribs, Nashville hot chicken, smoked sausage, beef brisket with corn, mashed potatoes, green beans, and mac and cheese. Keep rollin’ down the river with a helping of prime rib and deep-south shrimp and grits. For dessert, Mississippi Mud Crème Brûlée weaves its sweet magic. A cavalcade of carnival-worthy cocktails is available to revelers 21 years of age and older, as is a kids’ menu for little picayunes. Afterward, stop by the River Roost Lounge for the comedy and musical stylings of Yehaa Bob. Boatwright’s Dining Hall is open for dinner only. Advance reservations are highly recommended. Learn when advance reservations can be made.
