Their Cast has been called back so this looks likely to be true

Facebook rumor: 1/28. I have heard it may have legs… No clue if it’s correct or not, but hoping.

Anyone hear anything about FF reopening? I know staffing is an issue but wasn't sure if any progress has been made!

I saw that on The Dis review of Taf...That has me excited. I need that Sea Bass in my life.

Yeah -- we go to the Boardwalk at least once a trip, because Flying Fish is one of the best restaurants on property and Jellyrolls is a lot of fun. Even when we don't eat at Flying Fish, we will sometimes get a late night pizza from the pizza window and eat either there on the water or up on the porch at the Boardwalk Inn. I really like the area. But we always go there from EPCOT, after park closing if doing the pizza window. It's too hard to get to otherwise.

The head chef for Flying Fish is currently working at Trattoria al Forno. He is apparently headed back to Flying Fish in September.

Would help if they let people park there. I feel like Disney has never figured out what to do with this area. Now with skyliner they could make it like a Disney Springs “lite” for skyliner resorts. They just need a bit more energy and shopping.

That's really good news! FF has been one of the most consistent of WDW's sigs over the past couple of years, despite the fledgling Boardwalk area.

My parents stayed at the Boardwalk in July and someone who works there told them the Flying Fish will be open for our trip in over Thanksgiving.

With YS and Jiko (rumored opening Sept) and Takumi-Tei waiting for international help, besides V&A, the next signatures on deck would be Monsieur Paul and Flying Fish. I'm feeling Flying Fish would be next...

The Boardwalk struggled before COVID, and is now a mostly empty area. It is going to be difficult for Flying Fish to reopen until the situation improves.

I have heard from layed off Flying fish staff that the company has no scheduled opening date at this time.
