A brand new table service dining location is coming to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort called The Ale & Compass Restaurant. Replacing Captain’s Grille, this casual restaurant will have a gastropub ambiance with New England-inspired comfort foods. The surroundings are described as being inspired by the cozy warmth of a lighthouse with an on-stage hearth oven as the focal point. We haven’t heard yet what exactly will be on the menu but we do know that it will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Ale & Compass Restaurant will also be on the Disney Dining Plan.
Another exciting addition is the expansion of the lobby lounge to 58 seats. It will also get a new interior and a new menu featuring classic cocktails and light bites. Both the Ale & Compass Lounge and Restaurant are expected to debut in October 2017.
Both of these additions are preceded by the opening of The Market at Ale & Compass. This quick-service location offers 28 seats for guests to dine on an array of menu offerings for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Some of the options include sticky buns, grilled paninis, spinach and feta pastries, and a veggie sandwich with roasted broccoli and garlic, kale, almond, golden raisins and cheese on a whole-grain baguette.
The Market at Ale & Compass also offers a grab ‘n go section with sandwiches, salads, and kid friendly items. For thirsty guests, a Coca-Cola Freestyle Machine, beer and wine, and a specialty drinking station that offers both specialty coffees and smoothies will complete their meal. A small merchandise area will be part of this space but it is still under refurbishment and expected to open later this month.
