FIRST LOOK Inside the Newly Reopened Narcoossee’s in Disney World

If you’re heading to Disney World, you need to know about all of the changes happening there.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

The 50th Anniversary has ended, TRON Lightcycle / Run is opening soon, massive fireworks changes are on their way, and lots of menu updates have taken place as well. Over at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, things are changing too because Narcoossee’s has FINALLY reopened after a lengthy refurbishment — let’s check it out together!

On April 1st, 2023, Narcoossee’s finally reopened after having closed in the summer of 2022 for a huge refurbishment. Things have changed on the inside of the restaurant as well as with its menu, so we stopped by to see what it’s like!

On the outside, you’ll still see that signature Narcoossee’s sign, signaling that you’re in the right place.

Once inside, you’ll note the changes right away. The new decor represents the ocean (which fits the seafood theme of the restaurant and its location right on the water).

There are some darker touches in certain places, while other spots have pops of color that stand out — particularly when it comes to the teal elements.

Teal everywhere now!

You’ll find tables and chairs in some spots, as well as large booths.


And you can’t forget about one of the most spectacular parts of this restaurant — the VIEW. Since it is right on the water, you’ll get some fantastic views of Magic Kingdom and the fireworks at night, something worth considering when you’re timing that reservation.


But that’s not the only thing that has changed at Narcoossee’s. The spot now has an updated menu as well. Things start off with an Artisan Boule of Sourdough “made with a perfectly toasty crust and baked daily in the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa bakery.”


When it comes to appetizers, there are quite a few to pick from including some that are returning items or modifications of returning items. But there are also some new picks like the Ocean-inspired Charcuterie Board ($28) and the Brisket and Ricotta Tortelloni ($16).


Then, there are soups and salads. These include the Bisque, but Disney has said that it’ll now include an “enhanced tableside presentation.”


In terms of entrees, you’ll find the Blackened Redfish (a signature dish from Chef Noah Estabrook) as well as salmon, scallops, shrimp and steak.


You can really go big with the Surf & Turf option or the NEW Ribeye Chop.


There are also “enhancements” to add to your dinner and some sides too.


And finally, we get to dessert which has some NEW items — the Berry Pavola and Pineapple Bavarois, as well as some other sweet treats.


There’s also a kids menu with some appetizers, entrees…




…and desserts.


There are also plenty of drinks to pick from, including some from the NEW cocktail program.


Plus, you’ll find non-alcoholic drinks and a revamped wine list.

We stopped by Narcoossee’s and tried a few different dishes. First, we tried the Empress Lime Gimlet

…and the Pink London Spritzer.

As an appetizer, we grabbed the Buttermilk-fried Calamari — yum!

There is also an Ocean-inspired Charcuterie Board with Ahi Tuna Pastrami, Charred Octopus, and Lobster Sausage.

We couldn’t help ourselves and ordered one more appetizer — the Shrimp and Grits!

Finally, we ended with the Chocolate Hazelnut Bar for dessert!

That’s a first look at the reopened Narcoossee’s experience in Disney World. Do YOU think it’s worth it? Tell us in the comments.
