    Having one person in each (must stay in during dinner) which restaurant would you recommend Paddlefish or Boathouse? Best value for dining plan. Unfortunately, can only chose one. Thanks for suggestions!

    Hi Jacalyn!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are planning a fantastic trip, and with your question, “you had me at seafood!”

    Disney Springs is one of my favorite dining destinations. With so many different cuisines, there is a meal to satisfy every palate! When talking seafood, I consider The BOATHOUSE and Paddlefish THE destinations for upscale waterfront dining. Both restaurants require two dining credits and are similarly priced, so in terms of the dining plan, they are equal in value.

    Did you know that Paddlefish was voted Best Seafood Restaurant 2018 by Orlando Magazine? I completely agree with this assessment! We have celebrated birthdays as well as Christmas on the deck of the paddleboat. We are steak connoisseurs in our family and are hard-pressed to find better than the Filet Mignon.  Surprisingly, the Vegetarian Pasta is also one of our favorite dishes. (I thought this was supposed to be about the fish!) Don’t leave without trying the Lobster Guacamole; it is delish!

    While I would choose to eat at Paddlefish any day, The BOATHOUSE has a super fun activity that is not to be missed! The Vintage Amphicar Tour is an iconic way to see Disney Springs from a whole new perspective, and who doesn’t love driving in and out of the water? Reservations are made in person at the dock podium or inside The BOATHOUSE BOATIQUE.

    Jacalyn, I hope this answered your question, feel free to sail back with any other questions.

    Bon appétit!
