FIRST LOOK: Narcoossee’s Restaurant Has Reopened in Disney World
Not everything is open in Disney World all of the time, and we’re not talking about when things shut down at night. We’re talking about prolonged closures of rides and restaurants because of renovations!
Disney has been reimagining a lot of spaces lately, like the guest rooms in Disney’s Contemporary Resort or the newer BoardWalk Deli replacing the former BoardWalk Bakery.
One spot that’s been closed for refurbishment is Narcoossee’s restaurant, but now it has finally reopened! So, come along with us to take a first look at the returned restaurant.
Narcoossee’s is located over at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. It has been closed down since June of 2022 for refurbishment, and now it’s finally ready to accept guests for dinner again.
We’re excited to see what’s been changed inside the restaurant, so let’s check it out!
Narcoossee’s is located on the water of Seven Seas Lagoon, past the Courtyard Pool and right by the resort boat transportation dock.
The interior of Narcoossee’s has been completely transformed, with more elevated coastal vibes in shades of aqua and blue with complimentary neutral tones.

Do note that Narcoossee’s is a Disney Signature Dining experience, so guests are expected to “dress accordingly in attire that respects the restaurant’s sophisticated and upscale aesthetic.” Disney says “clothing should be clean, neat and in good condition. Please no swimwear.”
Narcoossee’s is on the water of Seven Seas Lagoon, so you’re going to get some awesome views here!
Now, let’s talk about what the new food looks like over here!
Narcoossee’s New Menu
There is a brand new menu at Narcoossee’s now. The menu is still land and sea focused and was created by Chef Noah Eastbrook and Pastry Chef Kristine Farmer.
We’re going to give you a full review of our dinner here soon, but we’ll go ahead and break down some of the items you can expect to see on the menu.
The meal starts with an Artisan Boule of Sourdough, which is baked daily on-site at the Grand Floridian.
For your first course, you can get things like the fan-favorite Lobster Bisque (which has a new presentation), or the new Brisket and Ricotta Tortelloni. This has brown butter, parsnip puree, and sultana raisins.
You can also kick things off with the Ocean-inspired Charcuterie Board. This includes ahi tuna pastrami, charred octopus, and house-made lobster sausage.
For your main course, there are options such as The Blackened Redfish, which is Chef Noah’s signature dish and is sustainably sourced. The fish comes with crispy chorizo-sunchoke hash with hominy, Florida sweet corn, and red pepper rouille.
If you’d rather have something from the land instead of the sea, you can try out something like the Dry-Aged Pork Ribeye Chop. This is served with goat cheese-potato pave, turnips, onion jam, and fig jus.
There are still some old Narcoossee’s favorites on the menu, like the Plancha-seared Scallops and Parisian Gnocchi along with the Surf and Turf. And, there is a plant-based option — Roasted Vegetable Paella, which features market vegetables, cannellini beans, and preserved artichoke finished with charred Meyer lemon.
For dessert, the classic Almond-Crusted Cheesecake is still on the menu!
There are some new additions as well, like the Berry Pavlova or the Pineapple Bavarois.
We’re so excited that this dining option has returned to Disney World! You can make reservations for Narcoossee’s right now, and be sure to stay tuned for our full review of our dinner here.
