Walt Disney World Announces Two New Restaurants for Disney Springs

The names and some of the details for two new restaurants have been announced by Walt Disney World. According to the Disney Park Blog, they will both be in The Landing (formerly Pleasure Island) section of Disney Springs, and they are slated to open in 2015.

The BOATHOUSE will open in the spring. Schussler Creative is the group behind the BOATHOUSE. They are also responsible for Yak & Yeti, T-REX, and Rainforest Cafe, although all similarities end there. The BOATHOUSE will feature upscale dining on the waterfront. There will be live music and the restaurant will remain open until 2:00am. Guests can sign up for the Captain’s Tour; a 20 minute water taxi ride with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. According to Steven Schussler, the restaurant’s creator, “We are very excited that the BOATHOUSE is joining the Walt Disney World family at Disney Springs. 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 gourmet menu will feature seafood, steaks, and chops. There will also be a raw bar.

The other restaurant announced will open next summer. Morimoto Asia will feature the creations of Iron Chef America’s Masaharu Morimoto. The two-story waterfront restaurant will feature pan-Asian cuisine such as dim sum and Peking duck. It will be Chef Morimoto’s first pan-Asian restaurant, and will highlight flavors from across the continent. According to Chef Morimoto, “I’m very excited to bring this new concept to Disney, something I’ve always dreamed of. It’s a wonderful chance to share some of my favorite foods from across the Asian continent.”

Downtown Disney is currently being transformed into Disney Springs. The new district will feature four areas instead of three. There will be expanded parking with the addition of parking garages, and the number of shops and restaurants is expected to double. Downtown Disney is open during the construction. The transformation is expected to be complete sometime in 2016.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
