The BOATHOUSE: Waterfront Dining and Shopping Venue announced for Walt Disney World's Disney Springs in 2015

Today Walt Disney World announced The BOATHOUSE plaza, now under construction during Downtown Disney's transformation to the new Disney Springs shopping district. Situated to live in the '30s and '40s era, guests will be treated to waterfront views while dining and shopping in the new area. Floating pieces of "artwork" will be present in the form of boats floating in the water, contributing to the overall atmosphere of The BOATHOUSE. The official Press Release goes into detail about The BOATHOUSE restaurant and shopping experiences:

The incredible culinary experience of The BOATHOUSE will be showcased in an expansive restaurant with three distinctive bars including The Captain’s Raw Bar, The Admiral’s Club Bar and The Dock Bar, which is built over the water. The BOATHOUSE restaurant will be managed by internationally renowned and award-winning Gibsons Restaurant Group, celebrated for exceptional food and extraordinary service. Guests will enjoy a gourmet menu served daily until 2 a.m. featuring steaks, chops, fresh seafood and a raw bar.

The BOATHOUSE restaurant will immerse guests both on land and on water with live music and romantic Captain’s guided tours aboard The Venezia, a beautifully crafted 40-foot wooden Italian Water Taxi featuring champagne toasts and chocolate-covered strawberries. There also will be the exhilaration of guided Amphicar rides that launch from land, entering the water with a splash, taking guests on a 20-minute tour of the landmarks of Disney Springs.

The Harbor Master will orchestrate daily flag ceremonies, accompanied by a lively musical performance of beloved bugle songs, performed aboard a classic 1800’s antique steam boat.

Authentic nautical items, custom engraved paddles, distinctive lake-themed merchandise, and other unique items “Made on Earth™” will be available at The Ship’s Store, adjacent to The BOATHOUSE restaurant.

This looks like another immersively themed area that Disney is famous for, and I personally cannot wait to see this project materialize during Downtown Disney's much needed revitalization! That's all for now from TPO!
