Boatwright’s Dining Hall Set to Reopen at Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside

It is an exciting day for those who love all the dining options offered at the Walt Disney World Resort! Disney has announced that the popular character dining experience Storybook Dining at Artist Point With Snow White will be reopening on December 16. In addition to bringing back the Snow White character dining, Disney has also announced that Boatwright’s Dining Hall and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside will also be opening its doors to Guests.

Beginning December 14, Guests will once again be able to dine on delicious dishes like Nashville Hot Chicken and Pecan Pie Cheesecake. Here is more information on the reopening, which was announced via Disney Parks Blog:

Boatwright’s Dining Hall, a hidden gem at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, will be serving up their Southern specialties for dinner starting Dec. 14. Reservations can be made beginning Dec. 2.

Enjoy the flavors of the Louisiana bayou with the all-you-care-to-enjoy Chef’s Platter featuring ribs, Nashville hot chicken, smoked sausage, and barbecued beef brisket with mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, street corn, and green beans. Have you been craving General Fulton’s Prime Rib or the Deep-South Shrimp and Grits? They are back as well as the signature Boatwright’s Jambalaya and the plant-based Boatwright’s Harvest Jambalaya. And for a touch of Southern sweetness, be sure to order up the Mississippi Mud Crème Brûlée, a decadent chocolate brûlée with a chocolate shortbread cookie.

For Guests who have not yet experienced all the mouth-watering dishes and the fun atmosphere that Boatwritght’s offers, here is more information on the restaurant from the Walt Disney World website:

Hanging lanterns illuminate the cavernous dining hall, and the skeletal hull of a lugger fishing boat is suspended on high as its centerpiece. Warm yourself by the fire as you spy antique shipbuilding tools on the walls: C-clamps, saw blades, axes and more.

Sample the tantalizing flavors of the Louisiana bayou on the All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Chef’s Platter—featuring such lip-smackin’ favorites as ribs, Nashville hot chicken, smoked sausage, beef brisket with corn, mashed potatoes, green beans, and mac and cheese. Keep rollin’ down the river with a helping of prime rib and deep-south shrimp and grits. For dessert, Mississippi Mud Crème Brûlée weaves its sweet magic. A cavalcade of carnival-worthy cocktails is available to revelers 21 years of age and older, as is a kids’ menu for little picayunes.

It is important to note that, when it reopens, Boatwright’s Dining Hall will only be open for dinner. Just like with Storybook character dining, reservations for Boatwright’s will open up on December 2 for dates starting December 14.
