Downtown Disney to officially be retired next week


Walt Disney World’s dining and entertainment district, Downtown Disney, will be officially retired next week. Over the course of the next few months, Disney Springs will continue to bubble to life, but before then the name will officially change from Downtown Disney to Disney Springs.


Disney Springs has already changed the face of Disney’s dining and entertainment district, and has been gradually owing older venues, and opening new ones over the past year. When finished, Disney Springs will have 6,000 parking spots, over a dozen new dining and retail venues, and more options than any other place in Orlando.

Tuesday, September 29th, at 5:30 p.m. Walt Disney world will officially change into Disney Springs. A ceremony will be held at Waterview Park, adjacent to the newly opened Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.

Morimoto’s Asia will also open next week, with several more areas opening in 2016. An NBA Experience is expected to take over for Disney Quest in 2016 as well.
