Big changes are coming to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort on the dining front (and it has been needed for years!). The Captain’s Grille will be going away, with a brand new restaurant, lounge and market replacing it, all with nautical theming.
A whole new Ale & Compass concept debuts at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort in October, when the lobby lounge is transformed with a new interior and expands to 58 seats, offering a new menu of classic cocktails and light bites. now only do we get the new lobby lounge, but the Ale & Compass Lounge will be accompanied by a brand new restaurant!
The Ale & Compass Restaurant menu is still in the works, but the re-imagined restaurant will have a gastropub ambience with New England-inspired comfort food, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. An on-stage hearth oven is the focal point. Décor is inspired by the cozy warmth of a lighthouse, as a comforting respite from the outside world. The casual, table-service restaurant is on the Disney Dining Plan. When full menus are announced, we will update this page with the info.
The Market at Ale & Compass is the first step in a major re-imagining of dining at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. The Market has been open for a few weeks, and so far is a smashing success.
The airy, new market offers a small merchandise area and 28 seats for casual dining. With both made-to-order and grab ‘n go, you can start the day with an egg white wrap, spinach and feta pastry, or sticky bun. Lunch and dinner include specialties such as grilled paninis, ham and Cheddar on a pretzel roll and a veggie sandwich with roasted broccoli and garlic, kale, almond, golden raisins and cheese on a whole-grain baguette.
A grab ‘n go selection offers sandwiches, salads and other eats, including kid-friendly items. For sips, there’s a Coca-Cola Freestyle, beer and wine, and a specialty drinking station that offers both specialty coffees and smoothies.
