PostSubject: Downtown Disney to become Disney Springs   Tue Feb 19, 2013 11:23 am

Most of the existing parking lots will be replaced. The farthest-east areas will become green space, access roads, and "back-of-house" facilities. The existing Marketplace bus station will become green space and additional shops. A new bridge will connect this new area to Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort from behind Cap'n Jack's to the eastern edge of the Congress Park area of the resort.

A five-story parking structure, Disney's first multilevel parking structure in Florida, will take up a rectangular space along Buena Vista Drive, starting approximately at the east end of World of Disney and running west to approximately across from Raglan Road. Beyond that, along Buena Vista Drive, will be more roadways, a drainage lake, and the only bus station for the area. That will take the rest of the space up to the beginning of the West Side. The West Side parking lot, as with the West Side itself, will be largely unchanged. The only changes noted to the West Side are a new Starbucks replacing Wetzel's Pretzels, an overhead "railway" for atmosphere between that location and DisneyQuest, and the current Planet Hollywood is labeled as The Observatory, with no stated details.

With the new parking garage and the shift of the parking boundary closer to Buena Vista Drive, the added depth of the current parking lot would all be turned into walkways and retail, dining, and entertainment venues. The new space will be broken into The Town Center, The Springs, and The Landing. The new entranceway would be branded as The Gateway. Aside from the West Side surface lots, all incoming traffic would now come in through The Gateway, which would feed the bus lots and the parking garage. The buses would exit the same way they entered, while the parking lot would exit further east along Buena Vista Drive.

The map also shows a widening of the waterway between the mainland and Pleasure Island, which would become The Landing, and the repositioning of some of the bridges to the island. The waterfront area of the mainland would become The Springs, and the area of entry to Disney Springs from The Gateway would be The Town Center. The Town Center would be a retail center, The Springs would be primarily a relaxing open space, and The Landing would be drinking and dining establishments, with the long-announced waterfront amphitheater finally being built.

Again, and we can't stress this enough, all of this is rumor at this point. The only thing that is confirmed is the permit application for the stormwater drainage changes. However, these plans do resemble some of what we've heard unofficially, so there is a possibility that something resembling this might happen.

I can’t wait for more details to emerge, but of course I'm excited about the possible addition of a Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, which I LOVE in Disneyland. I'd love to see Trader Sam's in Disney World.

Here a few other options that are apparently on the block for Disney World’s “Disney Springs:”

Planet Hollywood would become The Observatory.
Disney Character Dining (TBD)
Disney Burger (TBD)
Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar
Wine Bar (TBD)
The Edison
Disney Bakery (TBD)
Food Truck
Powell’s Sweet Shoppe
Italian Restaurant (TBD)
Argo Tea
Shake Shack
Food Network Restaurant
Temecula Olive Oil Company
Yogorino
Walt’s Place
The Boathouse
Morimoto
Newt

Restaurants that look like they are definitely here to stay include Raglan Road and Splitsville.

According to WFTV Orlando: in a statement, a Disney spokeswoman said, “Work continues on bringing our vision for Downtown Disney to life. As with any project of this size and scope, our plans have continued to grow and evolve… We look forward to sharing additional details soon.”
