Levy Restaurants is excited to announce the grand opening of Paddlefish, its newest dining experience at Disney Springs, on Saturday, February 4. The seafood-centric restaurant, formerly known as Fulton’s Crab House, has undergone an extensive, multimillion-dollar transformation which involved a full renovation with a brand new design (interior and exterior) that has transformed the vessel into a modern yacht experience.

The aesthetic of Paddlefish was inspired by a modern, seafaring yacht with its clean lines, crisp designs, refined woods and a sophisticated color palette of blues and grays. Purposeful elements will be showcased in the dining areas such as booths that are put into spaces with great views and a bar that overlooks the paddlewheel. Unique design features include opening up all of the windows for an open-air feel and bar areas decorated with brass accents that resemble fish gills.

Paddlefish’s menu will showcase fresh seafood including Maine lobster, King and Snow crabs and a selection of fresh fish including sea bass, catfish and salmon. Fan favorites and classic dishes from Fulton’s Crab House, such as Lobster Corn Dogs and Crab Legs, will still be offered on the menu alongside new, contemporary options such as Lobster Risotto and Jambalaya. The menu also features interactive dining experiences including tableside services like Lobster Guacamole and Branzino for Two carved right at your table.

“It’s been incredible to have this opportunity to not only completely redevelop the menu, but also the kitchen design to accommodate it,” said Executive Chef Mark Boor. “I’ve put my heart and soul into creating a well-balanced menu that will have something that appeals to every palate and I’m excited to finally welcome guests onboard and see that hard work and vision come to life.”

Paddlefish will also showcase unique beverage offerings. The cocktail menu was inspired by classic, turn-of-the-century American cocktails and gives them a unique, modern spin with fresh ingredients and spirits that are house made by small craft artisan distillers. “We’ve really dug deep into finding some truly rare and amazing wines and spirits along with our favorite, familiar classics,” said General Manager, Jimmy Kraus. “Our goal was to have cocktails that feel timeless, unique and balanced.”

Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy three unique dining room experiences on the ship, which can seat a total 760 guests. Guests can enjoy their meal in the main dining room, in the “Boil Room” where guests can create their own seafood boils or on the rooftop deck where guests can sip on shared punch bowls and snack on shared plates while soaking in the sun and views of Lake Buena Vista and Disney Springs. Paddlefish also offers versatile private dining rooms and event spaces to accommodate celebrations or meetings from 20 to 1,000 guests.

There’s Something Special about Spring at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort

The first official day of spring is Sunday, but already, the season seems well underway.  Below are just a few reasons why we love visiting Disney Springs this time of year, in no particular order:

Flowers and Displays – From a new installation featuring character statues from “Zootopia” to the bold pink blooms scattered throughout the property, there is so much beauty to behold. We may be biased, but we think our flowers are among the prettiest at Walt Disney World Resort (and they make a great photo backdrop)!

Spring Hats – Easter and hats go hand in hand. Same for spring and fashion. At Chapel Hats, you can check all the boxes with sophisticated headwear that’s always in style.

Special Sweets – St. Patrick’s Day is Thursday and The Ganachery is celebrating with limited edition Irish Cream Liquor Ganache with Milk Chocolate and Stout Ganache with Dark Chocolate through the holiday. Next up are Easter lollipops featuring a new coconut flavor, set to debut on March 19th.

A Bountiful Brunch – While some Disney Springs locations offer brunch year-round (the House of Blues Gospel Brunch is every Sunday and the Rollicking Raglan Bruch now takes place on both weekend days), on Easter, many additional restaurants offer something unique. This year, The Wolfgang Puck Dining Room, Portobello, Fulton’s Crab House, House of Blues and Bongos will all feature a special Easter menu.

In just a couple of months, Town Center will open alongside the springs of Disney Springs, giving us even more to look forward to! In the meantime, I’m enjoying all that exists now – from World of Disney at the Marketplace to the amazing new acts at La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil on the West Side. No matter the season, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during a day at Disney Springs.

Spring or not, what’s your favorite thing to do while visiting? Share in the comments below, we’d love to know!
