If you’re hoping to enjoy a culinary experience while visiting Disney Springs, the hardest thing you’ll have to do is decide which venue you want to enjoy because there are so many! It’s a good idea to book your restaurant in advance so that you aren’t disappointed when you arrive and your favorite restaurant is full.
Sometimes, however, even with a reservation for a restaurant, things can happen that you can’t plan for. Bad weather can ruin an outdoor dining experience, and other events beyond our control can also spoil the evening, even events like, for example, a flood.
No flood is a good flood, but some floods are worse than others, especially when they involve sewage. And that’s exactly what happened last weekend at Disney Springs, according to ITM.
Unfortunately, several restaurants were affected when an area of Disney Springs apparently experienced some type of sewer issue, as the Boathouse Restaurant, Morimoto Asia, Terralina Crafted Italian, and Paddlefish all experienced sewer water issues. . The sewer problem has even led to some parts of the restaurants flooding.
And sure enough, those areas were flooded with sewage.
Part of the event has been captured in this photo, which is somewhat out of focus but appears to show sewer water protruding above the ground as towels are collected to be used to dry up the water and stop it from continuing to invade other areas of the restaurant.
According to ITM, sewage water was falling from the Paddlefish boat and flowing into the restaurant itself. By the next day, the first floor of the Paddlefish restaurant was reserved for customers due to flooding the previous evening.
Some of the restaurants in the area reportedly closed early the evening of the initial incident, and guests also reported the smell of sewage in the area. At the time of this article, however, the Walt Disney World website shows the paddle restaurant to be open during its regular hours to guests who wish to board the boat and enjoy amazing seafood!
