    We want to eat at a table outside close to the beautiful Disney Springs water and are trying to decide between BoatHouse or PaddleFish. Which would you recommend?

    Greetings, Lisa!

    Ooh! This is a tough one! I adore Disney Dining questions, but sometimes I feel like the choices I am given are so hard to pick between. There are so many delightful Disney Springs dining locations and these two offer incredible views and menu options.

    There is something certainly special about boarding an iconic paddle-boat for a delicious seafood dinner at Paddlefish. My kids adore it and the outdoor rooftop seating offers quite the view. On the other hand, The BOATHOUSE Restaurant offers waterside tables and a chance to watch the also iconic, American Amphicars take off and return with equally delicious food offerings. Personally, I think I'd choose The BOATHOUSE Restaurant as there is so much to watch and see while dining. Plus, if you have a sweet tooth, their desserts are incredible. Another we really enjoy is Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar. This family-friendly waterfront dive is a great and unique place to enjoy. 

    You honestly can't go wrong with any of the fantastic dining options available in Disney Springs. Just this past December, my husband and I chose to share a couple of small plates just so we could try out a few different places together. It was a delicious evening.

    Have a wonderful trip, Lisa, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.

    Magical Wishes,
