    Default New Wolfgang Puck Restaurant at Disney Springs

    We're just back from our first visit to the brand new Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Disney Springs and were hugely impressed by just about everything we experienced in a near 3-hour visit (thankfully, that wasn't all eating, as we were also given a full tour of the restaurant and interviewed both the general manager and exec. chef!).



    It has a really fresh and enticing ambience, and the menu is WAY more interesting than it seems at first. The pizzas and pastas are simply heavenly, while the charcuterie plate is to die for and the sea bass absolutely superb. And then there are the desserts. And the cocktails. So, a lot to enjoy...!

    We were disappointed to miss the opening by just a few days. Glad to hear that it's as good as we'd hoped.

    It is definitely as good as it looks, CL. I was surprised to learn that the original Puck's opened in 1997 and lasted a full 20 years before they shut it down (and rebuilt it, completely, as the new Jaleo Spanish restaurant that opens this spring), as it didn't seem that old. The interior decor is dramatically different, though, and I think the new look is definitely more in keeping with the upscale cuisine. The previous version was bright bordering on garish (very 1990s!), and the 2019 edition is much more subdued, airy and polished.

    Is this in the parcel of land to the left of the Coke Cola glass thing (if you have your back to the lake)?

    Yes, that's right. Just before you go into the covered 'market' section of the Town Center. It was just a grassy open area before. Now it's a 40ft-high farmers-market-cum-barn (but in a very nice way!).

    Scott Joseph's take (plus some interesting history on Wolfgang Puck's presence at WDW):

    I was just going to post that, Deb, but you beat me to it! As ever, a good read from SJ
