Coral Reef is a popular and historic eatery in the Walt Disney World Resort. The restaurant opened just a few years after EPCOT did in 1986, meaning it’s been around for 36 years now.

Unfortunately, if you loved the lobster bisque here you will notice that it is no longer on the menu as a few changes have now been made:

As you can see, the classic lobster bisque is no longer available at the restaurant. If you happened to be a fan of this dish, we hope you’ll be able to find something else to enjoy.

When comparing this new menu to older ones, we also noticed that the “Smoked Wild Mushroom Cioppino”, as well as the “Oven-Roasted Citrus-marinated Half Chicken”, has been removed.
