If you’ve visited Downtown Disney lately, you know it’s a sea of construction. You’ve got it in the parking lots, you’ve got it taking place throughout the shopping district: it’s just everywhere. Granted, it’s all to make for a better experience when Disney Springs officially unveils. And I have to admit that it’s still a fun atmosphere to visit, shop, and dine in even while everything is taking place!
Today, I thought I’d bring you a couple of news notes about things that are taking place at Downtown Disney:
- For those who may have missed my earlier announcement, the mega dining complex that was Pollo Campero, Bodie’s All-American, and BabyCakes NYC has now closed to guests. Guests looking for BabyCakes treats can still get them in many resort food courts and at the Gardens Kiosk at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
- The parking lot is still quite a mess at Downtown Disney. If you are staying on property, try taking the bus. It may be the easiest way to get around. However, if you are driving, be aware that certain lots are closed. Those include parking lots E, F, G, H, I, J, and K. Your best bet is to park over by Cirque du Soleil.
- A brand new shop/outdoor kiosk has opened up on the Marketplace side! Called Happy Hound, this kiosk sells accessories for your pets, including leashes, glamour collars, food bowls, outfits, jackets, and squeaky toys!
- It appears that a brand new Food Truck Park is being built at Downtown Disney. This new permanent home for the four food trucks introduced last year s being built on the West Side near Bongos Cuban Cafe. It is expected to be unveiled sometime in the summer. Currently, the Food Trucks can be found Wednesday through Sunday near Cirque du Soleil and House of Blues.
That’s gonna do it for this edition of News Notes! Thoughts?
