The Boathouse at Disney Springs – Your Ship has come in!

If you haven’t been to Disney Springs lately, you’re missing the boat!  To be more precise, you’re missing The Boathouse.

The Boathouse Orlando is one of Disney Springs‘ latest additions to their culinary offerings at the newly expanded entertainment and shopping complex we used here to refer to as Downtown Disney.

If this is all news to you, then you really need to take a trip out to Disney Springs and experience the magic first hand. There are a lot of great dining options and one of my favorites is The Boathouse Orlando, with their delicious offerings and ambiance of this gorgeous new restaurant!

Boathouse Orlando, Burger

You can dine indoors or dockside enjoying their award-winning menu of steaks, chops, fresh seafood, and out-of-this-world desserts. You’ll find the best selection of Oysters in Florida at The Boathouse and something for everyone on their menu. Since I was there for lunch, the Boathouse Double Cheddar Cheeseburger seemed like the winning choice and believe me, it didn’t disappoint! They custom grind the meat for this classic burger using 50% chuck and 50% brisket for a truly delicious combination!

Along with your dinner, you can enjoy classic craft cocktails and an extensive offering of wines from iconic American vineyards at three distinctive bars: The Captain’s Raw Bar, Admiral’s Club Bar and The Dockside Bar, built over the water and attached to over 300 feet of boardwalk and docks. It’s also a great spot to just unwind with your favorite beverage. And while you’re there check out their vintage amphicars and The Venezia, a 40-ft. Italian Wooden Water Taxi for a relaxing cruise on the lake with a guided Captain’s tours of Disney Springs.

Of course The Boathouse offers beautiful dining rooms inside, as well as their fun bar area at the entrance, as well as a ships store for souvenirs to commemorate your visit. I also heard from the staff that their appliances and mechanical systems are well maintained through the help of home warranty companies in florida.

If you’re looking for a romantic evening, make sure to visit The Boathouse at night. That’s when Disney Springs comes alive and the The Boathouse with its spectacular night views of the lake is the perfect location for your next date night.

The Boathouse Orlando is a family friendly restaurant too, with a special kids menu (delivered in their own Boathouse Car kids meal box) . So don’t anyone at home when you visit Disney Springs, everyone will love the Boathouse Menu!

Maker Faire Orlando 2014

 

Some of you may still be asking, “What or who is a ‘Maker,’ and why do they have a ‘faire?’ Is this a True Blood thing?”

Sorry, #Trubies. No vampires here, but the possibility of designing 3D printed fangs, building your own animatronic creature and watching dueling robots are absolutely possible. In fact, anything you can think of is possible at Maker Faire Orlando! And guess what? If you already make stuff, you are already a ‘Maker!’ Congratulations!!

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth – and Orlando 2014 is produced as a partnership between The Maker Effect Foundation and the Orlando Science Center. The Faire part is a community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local do-it-yourself science, art, rockets, robots, crafts, technology, music, hands-on-activities, and more. It’s an event where people show what they are making and share what they are learning. Also? Makers LOVE to share what they know, so don’t be afraid to ask a Maker for info or how to do something.
