A lot has been changing at Disney World leading up to the 50th Anniversary!

Happy 50th, Disney World!

The celebrations kick off on October 1st, and we’ve been bringing you a look at all of the new decorations that have arrived in the parks and keeping you up to date on all the NEW attractions, restaurants, and experiences that will be coming soon. And, now we’ve got an opening date for a brand new restaurant coming to Disney’s Contemporary Resort!

Earlier this year, Disney announced that The Wave would be closing at Disney’s Contemporary Resort to be reimagined for the 50th Anniversary. And, after revealing the brand NEW restaurant that would be opening in its place, we now know that Steakhouse 71 will officially welcome guests for the FIRST time on October 1st!

The restaurant is named after the year that Walt Disney World first opened and will be themed with a mix of sleek contemporary designs and elements from Florida heritage and the 70s.

The “family-friendly steakhouse” will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the menu will feature a whole host of menu items, including some that are “contemporary spins” on Walt Disney’s favorite foods. Let’s take a look at the menu!

For breakfast, guests will be able to find dishes like Fresh-baked Pastries and Avocado Toast and Walt’s Prime Rib Hash and Eggs Benedict. Plus, there will be plenty of drinks to choose from including the Steakhouse Bloody Mary and the Bourbon Cold Brew (which is made with Joffrey’s Coffee Cold Brew, bourbon, maple, vanilla bean cream).

In addition to the sit-down meals, Steakhouse 71 will also include a lounge for guests who want a more casual dining experience (you can check out the full menu here). And, whether you’re dining at the sit-down restaurant or the lounge, you’ll be able to try a selection of “Disney Family of Wines,” each of which has a personal connection to the Disney name.


Reservations will open for Steakhouse 71 on September 16th and will then be available 60 days in advance. So, if you’re hoping to dine here right when it opens, be sure you’re ready to grab your reservation! Of course, we’ll continue to keep an eye out for more details on the new restaurants, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for more!

  1. Did they ever give a reason why they got rid of the Wave? Why not just remodel it and give it a menu update? Why the whole name change and everything? Was it not popular? So many questions.

  2. Not surprising for Disney to go with a steak house since there is none in any of the Magic Kingdom resorts.

    However I am surprised there is not a bone-in ribeye option.
