Disney has recently announced two new Disney Springs restaurants that will be opening as part of the Downtown Disney transformation. Disney Springs will be home to Morimoto Asia and The BOATHOUSE.

Chef Masaharu Morimoto, who is most known by his appearances on Iron Chef America, will be opening a one-of-a-kind dining experience in the center of Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

Morimoto Asia will be Chef Morimoto’s first-ever pan-Asian restaurant offering flavors from across the continent. The restaurant will even have unique exhibition kitchens showcasing traditions like Peking duck carving, and dim sum.

The two-story restaurant is planned to open in the Summer 2015 at The Landing (formerly Pleasure Island) in Disney Springs. Morimoto Asia will feature waterside seating, terraces, a grand hall and a cocktail lounge.

The second new restaurant officially coming to The Landing in Disney Springs is The BOATHOUSE. This restaurant will be an upscale, waterfront dining location that will immerse guests both on land and in the water with live music, guided tours aboard the Captain’s piloted 40-foot Italian Water Taxi with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries and guided Amphicar rides that launch from land, enter the water, and take guests on a 20-minute tour of the landmarks of Disney Springs.

The BOATHOUSE is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2015 in Disney Springs. The restaurant’s gourmet menu will be served daily until 2 a.m., featuring steaks, chops, seafood and a raw bar. The BOATHOUSE is the newest project from Schussler Creative, who have also created Rainforest Cafe, T-Rex and Yak & Yeti at Disney World.
