Steakhouse 71 Opens October 1 At Contemporary, Menus Released

After much anticipation, Disney announced on Sept. 13 that Steakhouse 71 officially opens on Oct. 1, the same day Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary begins.

You can start making reservations online or via the My Disney Experience app for the new Table Service restaurant at Disney’s Contemporary Resort on Sept. 16.

Steakhouse 71 will replace The Wave on the first floor of the resort and will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The restaurant gets its name from the year the resort opened and will have, per Disney, a “sleek yet comfortable décor with fun design elements from the ’70s and hints of our Florida heritage with subtle sightings of the beloved Orange Bird and citrus groves.”

Know that kids can choose an entrée, two sides, and a drink for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They can also create their own ice cream sundae.

Some of the offerings are even a nod to Walt Disney, but with a “contemporary spin on some of his favorite foods.”

Lounge Bites

Citrus groves surrounding the resort when first being built inspired two cocktails, which you are also able to enjoy at the Steakhouse 71 lounge.

They are:

  • The Citrus Grove Cocktail (Italian bitter, green herbal liqueur, citrus juices, simple syrup, and orange bitters) evokes the scents of fresh oranges and citrus groves.
  • The Steakhouse 71 Vodka Gimlet (vodka, green herbal liqueur, herbal blend, lime juice, simple syrup, and Minute Maid Premium Lemonade) is a fresh and herbaceous cocktail inspired by the Florida wetlands. The “Lily” pad garnish is in honor of Lillian Disney.

You may even want to try a popular drink from the ’70s — the Tequila Sunrise. Steakhouse 71’s version has a “modern twist” with tequila, tropical juices, rosemary simple syrup, and house-made grenadine.

There’s even a “sharable” Tequila Sunrise available for lunch and dinner, serving 2-4 guests.

The restaurant also offers a selection of “Disney Family of Wines,” which is “a diverse collection of wines with a personal connection to the Disney name.”

As noted by Disney, “The wineries display qualities long identified with Walt Disney and The Walt Disney Company – passion, innovation, and quality.”
