The first new restaurant of Disney Springs may be about to begin construction in the former Pleasure Island - soon to be 'The Landing.'
Land cleared on Pleasure Island
Disney has filed a construction permit
for a 22,000 sq ft restaurant attraction on the land that was cleared originally for Hyperion Wharf on the waterside between Raglan Road and Paradiso 37.
The permit lists the restaurant as 'The Boat House Orlando,' and is signed by Steven Schussler.
Schussler has a long history of working with Disney, creating 'T-Rex' and 'Rainforest Cafe' at Downtown Disney, and 'Yak and Yeti' at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
The new construction would position the restaurant in The Landing district of Disney Springs, which is expected to be opening at the end of 2014.
Concept art of The Landing at Disney Springs
Disney has released concept art showing water-based cars at Disney Springs - called Amphicars (see above). Interestingly, Steven Schussler has been seen collecting various Amphicars for use as part of an un-named attraction in Orlando. You can see more on this at the video below from an episode of Discovery Channel's Fast and Loud.
Disney has not yet officially released any details regarding new restaurants coming to Disney Springs.
