Disney has officially announced an expansion for Downtown Disney in the Walt Disney World resort. If you’ve been to Downtown Disney in the past, you know it’s already got a nice selection of shops and dining. But this new expansion will take to a whole new level. Featuring new and unique shops and dining, an enhanced lakefront area and a bubbling spring throughout, this new expansion will double the number of shops, restaurants and other entertainment, resulting in a total of more than 150 establishments.
Disney Springs will be comprised of four neighborhoods. According to Disney, those are:
Construction is scheduled to begin in April and will be completed in 2016. However, the new areas will be opened in phases along the way.
I always recommend families make time to visit Downtown Disney during their vacations, but now with Disney Springs growing in such size, it may become a “must do” more often. Find more details on the Disney Parks Blog and see more concept art. What are your thoughts on this expansion?
