The menu will include some of former Iron Chef Morimoto’s favorites, such as moo shu pork, Peking duck, lobster chow fun, sweet and sour crispy whole fish, and spicy kung pao chicken. During brunch hours on the weekends, dim sum will be available and include dumplings, shumai, bao, and spare ribs.

The restaurant will have a sushi bar made from hand-selected ash wood. The bar will have only 14 seats and feature toro, kanpachi, Japanese red snapper, uni, sea eel, hamachi, fluke, salmon and other fresh fish. There will be a selection of sushi platters and specialty rolls for those unable to dine at the bar.

What’s on the beverage menu? Of course there will be sake! Morimoto’s line will be available, in addition to others. Also guests will be able to enjoy a variety of worldly wines, signature cocktails, and beers. Most of the beers offered will be Asian. There will be a collector’s edition of Imeperial Pilsner, Morimoto Soba Ale, Black Obi Soba, as well as the chefs beers by Rogue Ales. (Last year at Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin’s Food and Wine Classic we were able to try one of his beers… it was great! Full of flavor.)

Starting on Sep. 16, 2015, Morimoto Asia will start accepting reservations via Open Table, and on Sep. 30, reservations can be made by calling (407) 838-MOTO (6686). Beginning on Nov. 1, guests will be able to contact Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE to make reservations. The restaurant will start accepting walk-ups at 11 am on Sep. 30.

Daily hours for Morimoto Asia will be 11:00 am to 2 am. Lunch and dinner will be available daily with brunch on the weekends.

For those on the Disney Dining Plan, you’ll be happy to hear that it will be accepted. Disney hasn’t stated whether it will be a one or two credit restaurant, however, we do anticipate that it will require two credits. As far as Tables in Wonderland, we haven’t heard if they’ll be accepted the discount card.

Are you excited to try Morimoto Asia? We’d love to know what you think of this restaurant coming to Disney Springs!
