Rumor: Walt Disney World’s Downtown Disney Slated for Renovations?
Walt Disney World has historically remained tight-lipped about the future of Downtown Disney, but ParkRumors.com have found some interesting documents that describe a complete overhaul of the shopping, dining and entertainment district.
According to the site, documents were filed with the South Florida Water Management District describing a brand new Downtown Disney, complete with name change: Disney Springs. If the rumors are to be believed, Disney Springs will be divided into six neighborhoods with their own distinct look and feel.
ParkRumors.com breaks it down this way:
- “The Gateway,” the section of Disney Springs that would act as the gateway hub, complete with a five story parking garage.
- The Town Center, which would be built on existing parking lots and offer more retail areas
- The Springs, designed to be a relaxing part of Disney Springs
- The Landing, a dining section
The remaining two neighborhoods, the West Side and The Village Marketplace, would remain the same.
At this point, these speculations are only that – Disney has not officially confirmed one way or the other whether Downtown Disney will be getting a makeover. In the meantime, what do you think about these rumors? Would you enjoy a re-branded Downtown Disney?
