Located in the spot that was once Mannequins Dance Palace, Morimoto Asia is a waterfront restaurant showcasing selections from across the entire Asian continent.
The two-story venue features show kitchens where chefs will exhibit traditions like Peking Duck Carving. Dim Sum will also factor into the menu. Guests can enjoy waterside seating or grab a drink in the cocktail lounge as well. “It’s a wonderful chance to share some of my favorite foods from across the Asian continent,” Morimoto said in an interview.
To bring the concept to life, Chef Morimoto is teaming with Patina Restaurant Group, the company behind established Disney restaurants like Via Napoli and Tutto Italia in Epcot’s Italy Pavilion. The group also runs the table-service Naples Restaurant and the counter-service Napolini in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney.

Or beginning Sept. 30, you can make reservations through the restaurant at 407-560-6686. Reservations through 407-WDW-DINE begin Nov. 1.
