More fantastic news coming out of Disney Springs today, all!! We’ve got confirmation on several other restaurants joining the line-up at the new and improved Downtown Disney location in Orlando!
While we’ll be covering each and every one of these as they open, here’s a sneak peek at what’s right around the corner for Disney Springs.
Inspired by The Edison venue in Los Angeles, this lavish “Industrial Gothic” -style restaurant, bar and nighttime destination is themed to a 1920s-period power plant, recalling an exuberant era of invention and imagination. It will feature classic American food, craft cocktails, and live entertainment including cabaret and music.
The world’s first cupcake bakery, as named by Food Network and others, serves up handcrafted cupcakes, slow churned ice cream and homemade cookies. I have a Sprinkles locally where I live, and I will never admit to ordering a dozen cupcakes for delivery even when I was home alone…so don’t even try.
These aren’t as good as my beloved Magnolia cupcakes in NYC, but they are a fantastic fill-in here in Dallas. I know they’ll be a hit in Disney Springs.
Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza
Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza is a
modern day “pizza joint” known for its custom-built artisanal pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies. The fast-casual restaurant features an interactive assembly-line format that allows guests to customize their pizza (so…Subway, but for pizza), choosing from over 40 toppings – all for one price. The 11-inch pizzas are “fast-fired” in an open-flame oven and ready in just 180 seconds.
FYI — one of these is opening very soon just across town where I live, so I’ll be sure to head over there and do a review before the one in Disney Springs opens.
Vivoli Gelateria serves gelato made with fresh, seasonal ingredients; panini sandwiches; and espresso drinks.
Tea Traders Café by Joffrey’s
Tea Traders Café by Joffrey’s specializes in premium loose-leaf teas (hot, iced, blended) featuring customs blends, accessories, and packaged teas from all over the globe; created to go or for a tea experience in the café.
STK Orlando will offer a modern twist on the traditional American steakhouse featuring a sleek lounge with a DJ and rooftop dining. At approximately 14,000 square feet, the Orlando outpost will be one of the largest STK locations.
World-renowned chef Masaharu Morimoto and the Patina Restaurant Group (who also run several restaurants in Disney World and Disneyland, including Via Napoli and Tutto Italia in Epcot) will open Morimoto Asia, Morimoto’s first Pan-Asian restaurant.
Morimoto Asia’s culinary elements will provide flavors from across Asia, while exhibition kitchens will showcase the continent’s traditions. Included among them are street-food stalls, Peking duck carving, and dim sum.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
As we mentioned in a previous DFB post, this Indiana Jones themed location will surely be a hit with Disney guests. This aviation- themed lounge will feature unique drinks and small plates.
Themed décor like propeller-based ceiling fans, vintage travel posters and correspondence between Jock and Indy will be among the imagineering details.
So there’s what we can expect coming down the pike to Disney Springs, folks! There will surely be more details, news, and information coming soon, but so far we’re pretty excited!
