Downtown Disney Officially Becomes Disney Springs with Enticing New Dining and Exciting Retail Experiences


Yesterday, Walt Disney World Resort officially changed the name of Downtown Disney to Disney Springs, an important milestone in the ongoing transformation of the shopping, dining and entertainment venue at the world’s No. 1 family vacation destination.

Drawing inspiration from Florida’s waterfront towns and natural beauty, Disney Springs treats guests to a one-of-a-kind Disney experience amid beautiful open-air promenades, flowing springs and waterfront charm.


Disney Springs will include four interconnected neighborhoods: The Landing, Marketplace, West Side and Town Center that will offer memorable dining experiences, including the recently opened Morimoto Asia and Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, and a diverse mix of retailers—including premium, affordable luxury and fast fashion options. When Disney Springs is fully completed in 2016, the number of shopping, dining and entertainment venues will increase from the current 75 to more than 150.
