February 2, 1992 – The Casual Dining Restaurant Boatwright’s Dining Hall Opens in Walt Disney World
“Bona fide bites in the Big Easy.”
On February 2, 1992, the casual dining restaurant Boatwright’s Dining Hall opened in Walt Disney World. It was originally part of the Dixie Landings Resort, which was combined with the Port Orleans Resort in 2001; the restaurant and the gift shop Fulton’s General Store remained as they were after this merger. The restaurant is only open for dinner and features New Orleans style cuisine, ranging from dishes called Crescent City Gumbo to Boatwright’s Jumbalaya. The restaurant is also themed like a shipbuilding company, complete with hanging lanterns and wooden hulls.
