A slew of dining changes has hit the Walt Disney World Resort recently. With updated menus, seasonal offerings, and the return of character dining at locations like Cinderella’s Royal Table, the world of Disney Dining is truly feeling back to normal for the first time in a while!

Eagle-eyed Disney fans have also noticed some changes on the menu at an EPCOT classic. Coral Reef Restaurant in Future World is one of the most unique dining experiences in Walt Disney World. Guests are invited to dine “under the sea” without getting wet as they eat alongside spectacular views of a coral reef featuring over 60 aquatic species and 2,000 creatures that call it home. The tank holds enough water to fill 54 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

The fare is mostly seafood classics, which is either a delight or sort of strange, depending on how you feel about eating fish while watching fish. However, the restaurant has gotten a few menu updates and changes recently. Here’s what’s old, what’s new, and what’s vanished off the menu.
