This fall, one of the icons of Disney's shopping and dining district is getting a facelift and a new name. Fulton's Crab House is currently closed for a refurbishment and is expected to open later this year with a completely new decor, outdoor bar and rooftop lounge.
What wasn't expected was a name change. When the riverboat restaurant re-opens it will be called 'Paddlefish'. The name is somewhat ironic because the paddlewheel over 20 years ago when the restaurant had its original name 'The Empress Lilly'.
