If you have visited Orlando in the past decade you might have enjoyed what Downtown Disney had to offer, an entertainment district that differed from the other Disney options as it was distinctively grown up. Along with a large network of shops, restaurants and cinemas, there were music venues and nightclubs. It was targeted at grown ups and didn’t require a ticket to enter.
But, after a three-year transformation, the complex is now known as Disney Springs, and it has finally been unveiled to the public. Whilst some of the old favourites such as, House of Blues have stuck around, there are now over 50 different dining options open to visitors.
From food trucks to cinemas, celebrity chefs and shops, the entertainment hub has come back bigger than ever.
Downtown Disney’s transformation into Disney Springs was first announced in 2013, and the first phase of Disney Springs officially opened in May this year, introducing the Town Center.
The Town Center features a Spanish-revival style architecture, which draws on the history of the Spanish explorers who landed in Florida centuries ago. It also opened around 40 shops and restaurants in the first phase, with brands including Uniqlo and Superdry.
According to Travel and Leisure, The Landing, Marketplace and West Side opened several weeks ago. So all round, there will be 150 different shops, restaurants and entertainment places.
Disney is better known for it’s focus on entertaining the kids and it’s use of characters, yet this time around it has made a huge notable focus on its dining and shopping options.
We guess it’s now time for Disney to start reconsidering what to do with Epcot, as Disney Springs now seems like the place to eat your way around the world…
