Earlier this week, the Walt Disney World Resort confirmed that a whole new Ale & Compass concept (which is not to be confused with The Market at Ale & Compass) will debut at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort in October, when the lobby lounge will be transformed with a new interior and will expand to 58 seats, offering a new menu of classic cocktails, and light bites. But the biggest change is the adjacent Captain’s Grille, which will become the Ale & Compass Restaurant later this year.
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. Stay tuned on OTPN for additional updates.
