Walt Disney World Resort guests and local Florida residents have been enjoying Downtown Disney for more than 30 years, Disney have now stated they have scrapped a few preliminary plans saying they didn’t measure up to their aspirations.
They state their fundamental goal is to create a welcoming, comfortable space where families can enjoy time together and instantaneously feel right at home. Giving guests opportunities to relax, to be entertained, to wander in and out of unique and distinctive shops or enjoy a world-class dining experience.
As per usual Disney Disney Sprinds comes with a full back story
The story of Disney Springs begins at our new Town Center, which is oriented around a series of bubbling natural springs that first attracted settlers to the area. From there, the town grew to encompass three additional neighborhoods: The Landing, Marketplace and West Side – each with its own distinct charm and atmosphere.
Once complete, Disney Springs will expand from 75 to more than 150 shopping, dining and entertainment venues, featuring some of the world’s most iconic brands and restaurants. Construction is set to begin next month. The expansion will open in phases completing full development in 2016.
