It has been almost a year since the Walt Disney World Resort announced the expansion of Downtown Disney to become Disney Springs. This multi-year project is well under way now so I wanted to share with you some updates on the progress of Disney Springs that the Disney Parks Blog shared with us.

One of the newest, and most visible, additions to Downtown Disney is the new pedestrian walkway that connects the West Side and Pleasure Island. This temporary walkway will help with traffic flow and also make it easier to travel from one district to the other. Plus, the beautiful boardwalk meanders along Village Lake to offer a spectacular waterfront view.

Here are the latest additions and changes from Downtown Disney:

  • Fit2Run, the Runners Superstore, opened just last month. The store features Premier footwear, apparel, GPS, performance sunglasses and more.
  • The first of four themed Food Trucks made its debut during Festival of the Masters. Featuring a variety of delectable meatballs, the Superstar Catering Truck was a hit with guests. Additional trucks will continue to roll in soon!

If you’ll be checking out the newest offerings at Downtown Disney, don’t forget to make use of the new pedestrian walkway, with entrances located near Characters in Flight and Paradiso 37.

What are you most looking forward to at Disney Springs?
