As the Downtown Disney Area transforms into Disney Springs, the first of its four distinct neighborhoods is starting to take shape along the waterfront. Known as The Landing, the area will be home to unique and memorable dining experiences including the just announced Morimoto Asia and The BOATHOUSE restaurants, opening in Spring or Summer 2015. ThemeParkHipsters will be excited to know that dining reservations will be available to book very soon.

Morimoto Asia will be Japanese master Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s (best known from the television show, Iron Chef) first-ever pan-Asian restaurant featuring flavors from across the continent. The Disney Springs dining experience will feature unique exhibition kitchens showcasing cultural customs such as, Peking duck carving, and dim sum.

The BOATHOUSE will also be an additional upscale, waterfront dining experience added to the newly renovated Downtown Disney area. The nautical-themed BOATHOUSE will immerse guests both on land and on water with live music, private dining areas, and guided tours aboard the Captain’s piloted Italian Water Taxi complete with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. Another cool feature will be the launching of Amphicar rides from land that will enter the water and take guests on a 20-minute tour of the landmarks of Disney Springs.

Now for the adult cocktail connoisseur and diner (as I clear my throat in excitement), there will be three themed bars! The bars include the Dock Bar, The Captain Raw Bar, and the Club Bar. Needless to say, I am super stoked about this new restaurant. And it’s not because of the bars or the Water Taxi ride with champagne…well maybe it is 🙂 .
