Disney Springs Development Progress Continues in 2015 as New Specialty Shops Pop Up
The village shopping concept is gaining traction as Disney keeps unveiling new features and store concepts in the former Downtown Disney/Pleasure Island entertainment and shopping complex
Sometime ago we covered the amazing concept of the new Disney Springs, but only now are we finally beginning to see the concept art become a reality. And we are loving it here in Orlando, where Disney has not opened a new theme park in Orlando for over 15 years now and anytime we see them developing a new concept we know it has to be world-class. That is how Disney Springs is shaping as we start the spring of 2015 in a non-theme park location that has dared to add food trucks, two Starbucks and countless street vendors.
But that’s old news—here’s what’s happening at Disney Springs… A new store completely devoted to hats has popped up in one of the village structures, offering patrons the chance to try and buy amazing headgear ranging from top hats to fantasy headdress. Also, NYC Bakery has sprung up at Disney Springs—the brainchild concept of Erin McKenna famed founder of the former BabyCakes at the Disney Village—with amazingly fresh bagels, cupcakes and gluten-free pastries.
We will continue to cover new developments, including the super-duper-exciting news about the redevelopment of the Planet Hollywood restaurant into the all-new Planet Hollywood Observatory experience, featuring a high-tech planetarium with stars, planets and galaxies covering its dome ceiling. And that’s not all, there are plenty of new restaurants, shops and attractions scheduled to be included into the Disney Springs development.
Best of all, Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is only 15 minutes away from Disney Springs down the I-4 corridor. Be sure to check out our rates from the home page of our website. We are always excited to have families come stay with us and be a part of their Orlando vacation experience.
