Cap'n Jacks/Disney Springs

I heard that as part of the Disney Springs expansion, Cap'n Jacks will be closing for good. Does anyone know if this is true and if there is a closing date? We have ADRs in mid May and wondered if I should modify.

I don't know for sure. But I think May is too soon for it to be gone. Also I would think they would notify you if you have a ressie at a time when it would be closed. I am gonna miss it. I loved the pot roast and DH loves the peel and eat shrimp. It is one of the only places you can get them anymore!

Gonna miss it too. It's been our family's traditional "first night at Disney" meal.

It would make sense, because I think disney's intent is to rent all the space and not run any restaurants there itself. But it's not official and I can't see it being done by this May.

The articles I've read did say that it was announced to cast members that Captain Jack's would close and that all the CMs would be reassigned to other restaurants. I haven't seen any mention of a time line for that closure, though.

I'd agree that you are fine for May.

I imagine that the actual closure will occur at some point much, much farther into the actual work than beforehand - they can do a lot of what they want to do before they need to clear out Cap'n Jacks and/or hand it over to someone else to be rebranded. I can't see why they'd kill that particular revenue line before they really needed to.

The artist renderings I have seen

make it look like they are keeping the building so there may still be a restaurant there...just not sure what it will be called..

1) Don't know the date.
2) But, the release did say Cap'n Jack's is deep-sixed.
3) A wise choice.
4) It has not been busy, or profitable, for quite a while.
. . . poor service
. . . poor food (entrées)
. . . poor location
