8 Things You’ll Love About Sebastian’s Bistro at Walt Disney World

If you follow news and events taking place all around the Walt Disney World Resort, you know that 2019 and 2020 are full of refurbishments, the re-imagining of spaces and the addition of new attractions, a new gondola aerial lift system and even new restaurants. A recently opened restaurant at Disney World is Sebastian’s Bistro at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, and there are a lot of things you’re going to love about it! Here are just eight of them.

8. It’s just over a year old!

Sebastian’s Bistro opened on October 8, 2018 at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. It stands in the place that was once the Shutters restaurant. The bistro is located in the completely re-imagined Old Port Royale area of the resort hotel.

7. It’s a table-service venue.

At Disney World, there are quick-service restaurants at which you can order at the counter, pick up your food and make your way to a table. Then there are table-service restaurants at which ­­­­­­­­­­­­­Guests are seated and then place their orders at the table with a server. The best thing about a table-service restaurant at Disney is that Guests can make dining reservations for them. And guess what? Sebastian’s Bistro is a table-service venue, and that means you can make a dining reservation up to 180 days in advance of your trip. Call (407) WDW-DINE or access the My Disney Experience app to make your reservation!

5. Variety on the menu

Sebastian apparently knows how to wow Guests with different flavorings and offerings on the menu. There are salads, jerk chicken, crab cake-topped burgers (sorry, Sebastian!), steaks, a Bahn Mi sandwich, chimichurri, special desserts called The Floating Island or the Message in a Bottle and so much more! The cuisine has a mix of Latin and Caribbean flavors. You’ll think you’ve embarked on an island vacation!

4. Latin and Caribbean flavors

Since Sebastian’s Bistro is new, some think it’s just a Disney version of a Red Lobster restaurant. On the contrary, the bistro serves up delicious entrees and decadent desserts with a Latin-inspired flair and Caribbean-inspired flavors. What do you get when you mix surf and turf, Disney magic and a unique and rich cultural approach? You get the all-new Sebastian’s Bistro!

3. Cocktails

Looking for some fun cocktails to enjoy when you dine at Sebastian’s Bistro? How about a Gold Medallion? It’s a delightful mix of Cruzan Disney Select Single Barrel Rum, Beefeater Gin, Bols Apricot Brandy, and Orgeat (Almond), with Orange and Lime Juices topped with Soda Water. The Guava-Rita is Herradura Reposado Tequila, Sweet-and-Sour, and Guava with Pomegranate and Lime Juices. Or maybe the Mariner’s Mojito is more to your liking—it’s Bacardi Gran Reserva Maestro de Ron Rum, Lime Juice, Mint, and Pure Cane Sugar topped with Soda Water. And if you’re feeling a bit brazen, try the Caribbean Smuggler—Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum and Parrot Bay Coconut Rum with Cranberry and Pineapple Juices.

2. The Chandeliers

The chandeliers in the restaurant are gorgeous! We didn’t think we would see chandeliers in a restaurant named for Ariel’s crustacean pal, but they’re there, and they’re beautiful, so when you visit, be sure to look up!

1. The Theming and Décor

Sebastian’s Bistro gives Guests a sense of island fun and magic by using light and bright colors in the décor. The theming is in keeping with that Caribbean feel, and the bright open space in the restaurant makes it even easier to leave your troubles behind!

Rebekah loves exploring the history of the parks, the genius behind the Magic in the person of Walt Disney, and she is intrigued by all things Disney World and Disney Imagineering. When in the parks, Rebekah and her husband Scott make the most of their time by enjoying every minute with their Fab Four, by delving deeper into Walt’s vision for the parks and into the history behind the Walt Disney World Resort, and by photographing the many different types of architecture at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and on the World Showcase at EPCOT. When she’s not in the parks, Rebekah is excitedly setting travel dates and planning her family’s next adventure to their happy place deep within the Sunshine State. On breaks from planning her next trip, Rebekah is a writer, journalist and children’s author, penning children’s books about kids with special needs that she affectionately calls “believement-achievement” stories.
