Downtown Disney Changes – A Quick Photo Update

According to Disney construction was to have officially started on Disney Springs in early May. It’s now mid-month, so I set off to see what visible evidence there was of the pending transformation. Turns out not much. But there is a bit new at Downtown Disney since my last swing through, so I do have something to share with y’all.

The 'cone' items from Cars Land have made their way to Orlando. This was the Turkey Meatball Cone, there is also a Chili one. I found it a bit greasy, but flavorful.

As you can see, there really isn’t much to see when it comes to Disney Springs. At some point they’ll have to start making major adjustments to both parking and expanding the stores and restaurants. Disney Springs will open in phases between 2014 and 2016.

    I don’t like those construction boards, I think they should place carnival cutouts in front of them

    At the top of the post u showed the monorail
    Will they be extending that to downtown Disney
    For more access it would be great as my family

      There are no plans to expand the monorail. Disney will be expanding its bus fleet in numbers and in length with ‘slinky’ busses.
