Downtown Disney transforming into Disney Springs – February 2015 update


We’re back with our latest update from Downtown Disney as it transforms into Disney Springs. There are 30 photos and a great video in this mega-update.

New stores including: Chapel (hats), Apex (sunglasses), the Art of Shaving, and a few signs for as yet unopened stores are now on most of the store fronts in The Landing area. I’m not sure any shave is worth $55. But if you want one, The Art if Shaving will be glad to service you.

We recently profiled the newly activated parking garage spot finder system. Work on the second garage is just getting started. There are also three new dining locations in progress, The Boat House is looking nearly finished (outside at least), The Hangar is finally being enclosed, and serious remodeling is underway at the future Morimoto ASIA location.

Not clearly on the video is the progress on the parking garage, the work they’re doing to add off-ramps from Lake Buena Vista drive directly into the parking garage, and work going on in a few areas currently off-limits to guests that will be brand new shopping and dining areas added to Downtown Disney.
