Disney To Get 2 New Restaurants
I owe a big thanks to my dad for giving me a copy of this press release from Landry's Restaurants, Inc. (they're the guys who own the Rainforest Cafe).
Since it's a press release, I put this in the news section...if you want to move it, do so.
So, a new restaurant in DTD and in DAK. I particularly like the T-Rex idea; what are your thoughts?
...T-Rex is a unique concept that features dining and retail in an interactive prehistoris environment. The oncept is built around water, fire, and ice -- guests visiting T-Rex will be greeted with life size animatronic dinosaurs that live among cascading waterfalls, bubbling geysers, a fossil dig site and much more. Locations are planned domestically and internationally, the first of which is slated to open this spring in The Legends mall in Kansas City, Kansas; with another opening in Downtown Disney (near Orlando) in early 2008.
In addition to the T-Rex concept, Landry's has acquired the majority interest in Schussler Creative's new Asian themed eatery (which is expexted to open by summer 2007) inside Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. This Asian-themed restaurant with retail in reminiscent of the wester Himalayan foothills in India and Nepal, featuring a rural village called Anandapur in a jungle with a tiny town-like mass at its center. Asia will offer full-service table dining, as well as quick service food. This Asian-Fusion concept will feature Asian decor, complete with Asian antiques, as well as a retail component that will offer Asian goods ranging from Sushi plates to chopsticks and fine teapots.
