What does the Disney Imagineering team have in store for us?
More shopping, dining and entertainment amid beautiful open-air promenades, meandering springs and waterfront charm.
This area is about to undergo a multi-million dollar remake which will add 4,000 jobs when completed in 2016 and over 1,200 jobs during construction. The project will be completed in phases with the area remaining open during the entire construction period.
For those who have visited Downtown Disney, you are aware of the water running through the complex. This will now become the focal point and is incorporated in the new name, Disney Springs. Perhaps borrowing on an idea started by Royal Caribbean on the Oasis-class ships, they will have 4 "neighborhoods":
- Town Center - a Spanish Revival retail area & dining venue with a promenade
- The Landing - world-class dining with view of waterfront
- Marketplace - familiar family-friendly retail & dining with over-the-water pedestrian causeway
- West Side - featuring an industrial building with a lounge area with lively entertainment
