The Nautilus — $15

Dive deep into the majestic Sea. A Blue Raspberry Slushy with Swedish Fish and a special 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Glow Cube

This drink is brilliant in its simplicity.

The Nautilus is served in a fishbowl, which is perfect.

The Swedish fish are also a great touch.

The glow cube steals the show.

The “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” logo is just the start.

After removing the glow cube, we found some amazing graphics. Here’s the giant squid.

It’s The Nautilus!

The glow cube has bubbles, making The Nautilus appear to be below the surface.

This is a standard but delicious blue raspberry slush. We didn’t find it to be overly sweet, as is often the case.

Squids Revenge — $13

A Michelada with a Salted Rim and garnished with charred Octopus and Cucumber. Watch out; the giant squid is back!

Our server warned us this was bad, but we had to try it.

The drink is a really bad Michelada. The blue coloring leaves a lasting mark on hands for hours.

A diver statue is brought to the table along with the drink. It makes for a great photo, but this hastily-made drink is not worth trying. Guests do not keep the statue.

In fairness, Magic Kingdom restaurants are not equipped to make proper cocktails. There are no bartenders. We give this an “A” for effort but an “F” for taste.

Captain Nemo Octopus

Seaweed Salad, Cucumber, Pickled Beets, Hearts of Palm, Tapioca Crackers, Beets Mousse, and Carrot-Ginger Silk

This appetizer is vile.

be-our-guest-captain-nemo-octopus-3-7504663

It is served cold, as it’s a salad. That’s not the issue with the dish.

The octopus is way too rubbery and slimy.

This surprises us because every squid dish we have had at Walt Disney World is excellent. We recommend sticking with options at Toledo — Tapas, Steak & Seafood, or Tiffins.

Ned Land Sea Cake

Lemon and Strawberry Shell Cake, Pistachio Microwave Cake, Chocolate Rocks, Grey Stuff, and Swedish Fish

ned-land-sea-cake-be-our-guest-1-6314492

The presentation is adorable. It captures the classic attraction well, from the famous rocks to the mermaid and fish.

ned-land-sea-cake-be-our-guest-4-2778337

The lemon and strawberry cakes are fresh and moist, as are the pistachio cake pieces. This is a cute and enjoyable dessert.

  1. Looks like Ned Land was right! The Captain really does serve “Slimy cold on seaweed dishes” But at least he knows how to make a good slushy ;)
