It was the highlight of our last trip! Best fish tacos EVER. Also, I feel that it was the best value overall. The quality was there, the cost was decent and the location is great. Only regret is doing it only once in our 4 days.

Tell me all about eating at Bubba Gump

Please tell me about Bubba Gump dining.

1. Are the portions large, because the prices are!

2. What are your favorite entrees?

3. Is the chilly shrimp the same thing as Bone Fish Grill's bang bang shrimp?

I can get a $100 worth of gift cards for $80 through Costco, but not real sure if I want to eat there. Give me the good and the bad. Thanks.

Latin Quarter at Citywalk?

On my last trip in 2009, I ate at Latin Quarter and really enjoyed it. I was looking over the restaurants at Citywalk for my upcoming trip and I don't see it listed there anymore. Is it still there? If not, what replaced it?

The restaurant is reportedly closed...they are supposed to be changing the restaurant to a more Mexican format...whatever that means. I got this off of Screamscape so take it with a grain of salt.

Okay, thanks. I guess I'll just see if it's open in November when I go. Plenty of other places to eat anyway.

If you love shrimp, this place is great! I usually order the I'm Stuffed Shrimp, which is not only delicious but usually leaves me feeling... stuffed! I would describe Bubba Gumps as an upbeat, less serious version of Red Lobster.

The desserts are huge compared to the prices, as well. And delicious.

I've never been disappointed by Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, and always manage to eat there once every trip I go.

I heard it was being called Don Quixote's.

Also, Pastamore Marketplace is being replaced by a woodfire pizza place. Perhaps even called "Woodfire Pizza".

Latin Quarter is closed (being renovated and changed), not sure how long that will take, so is Pastamore. Other things heard is that Starbucks is going to move downstairs, and endangered species store is going, and a Ben & Jerry's will be added.

That leaves the old Starbucks location open (along with the upper floor of that building thats currently storage) for something else new that will probably be announced for next year.

In short CityWalk will probably get a lot of refreshing and updates before Disney springs opens. I think the CityWalk plans may be announced at the end of the year, and they will likely be fairly big. At the rate they are going many parts of the entire resort will likely be unrecognizable from today in 5 or 6 years.

@ GDL, the original poster

We ate at Bubba Gump's in 2011 and returned for a meal during our trip a couple of weeks ago.

We found portions to be huge! I didn't finish my meal (Boat Trash) which is very unusual for me.

One son ordered 2 appetizers for his meal:

Clam Chowder, $5.99



Shrimp Tempura, $9.95



My other son ordered Shrimper's Heaven, $21.49



I ordered "Boat Trash" or "Bucket of Trash", $20.99



My husband ordered the same thing he did last time, Shrimp New Orleans, $17.99. It is fantastic!



We ended the meal with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae, $8.99

Just the Pastamore Marketplace is being renovated. The main restaurant is still open.
