Disney announces Morimoto Asia, BOATHOUSE Dining Experiences Coming to Disney Springs in 2015
As construction continues on the conversion of Downtown Disney to the new Disney Springs, the resort continues to announce new additions coming to Disney Springs. Disney just announced two new resturaunts coming to Disney Springs in 2015.
Morimota Asia is described as the “first-ever pan-Asian restaurant featuring flavors from across the continent.” The resturaunt will feature Asian displays of food including Peking duck carving, and dim sum.
“I’m very excited to bring this new concept to Disney, something I’ve always dreamed of,” said Chef Morimoto. “It’s a wonderful chance to share some of my favorite foods from across the Asian continent.”
Chef Morimoto was featured on Iron Chef America television show and still makes appearances on the show.
The restaurant will stand two stories tall and will open next year in 2015 in “The Landing” area of the park, formerly known as Pleasure Island.
Disney also announced The BOATHOUSE will also be opening in 2015. The BOATHOUSE will feature captain-guided tours of Disney Springs aboard a 40-foot Italian Water Taxi. Guests can sample champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries and even take a ride on a Amphicar that launch from land. The menu will feature steaks, chops, seafood and a raw bar that will be available until 2 A.M.
“We are very excited that the BOATHOUSE is joining the Walt Disney World family at Disney Springs,” says creator Steven Schussler. “Walt Disney Imagineering has created a wonderful, interactive, culinary and entertainment experience at Disney Springs. We are proud to be part of this magical experience.”
The BOATHOUSE comes from the brains of Schussler Creative, the creators of Rainforest Cafe, T-Rex and Yak & Yeti, all of which are located at the Walt Disney World Resort.
