PHOTOS: First Look Inside The New “Flying Fish” Restaurant at Disney’s Boardwalk

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

The newly renovated Flying Fish on Disney’s Boardwalk was nice enough to let us in for an early look around the restaurant ahead of their highly-anticipated August 3rd grand opening.


The inspiration for the fresh design is none other than the beloved flying fish of Disney’s BoardWalk, which are subtly suggested throughout the location – from upholstery patterns to kitchen tiles.


Be sure to check out the restaurant’s sparkling architectural accents, which include golden-winged room panels and a glittering chandelier that mimics a school of flying fish swimming overhead.


The restaurant also features boardwalk-inspired mementos like carnival art, vintage games, and a nod to the legendary “Flying Turns” rollercoaster.



My favorite part? The fish-inspired silverware!

Stay tuned for a review of the new Flying Fish later this week on
