Big changes are on the horizon for dining at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Captain’s Grille has been under refurbishment since the end of May, and now we know what is going to take its place. Ale & Compass Restaurant will feature a gastropub ambiance and will focus on a New-England inspired menu.
Ale & Compass Restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and will continue to be a table service dining location. The restaurant’s decor is inspired by a lighthouse and the main focal point will be an on-stage hearth oven.
Ale & Compass Restaurant is expected to open sometime in October.
The lounge next door will also see a makeover. It will be transformed with a new interior and will expand to include 58 seats. The lounge will offer up a new menu of classic cocktails and light bites.
Recently, for those who didn’t know, the hotel opened its new quick service location, The Market at Ale & Compass. Guests can enjoy both made-to-order options, as well as grab ‘n go choices. There is also a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine, beer and wine, and a specialty drinking station that offers both specialty coffees and smoothies. The Market at Ale & Compass doesn’t have a huge amount of seating, as there are only 28 seats. The Market at Ale & Compass will soon offer a small merchandise area too.
