Observations from Downtown Disney Part 2 (Disney Springs, World of Disney, T-REX)

by on August 12, 2014

In part one of this photo tour of Downtown Disney we covered the West Side and all the walls surrounding Pleasure Island. We start off part two with one of the only references to Disney Springs that you will see in the entire Downtown Disney area. Even the concept art doesn’t have “Disney Springs” on it. Several lampposts outside of Fulton’s Crab House were emblazoned with the Disney Springs logo earlier this spring.

Observations from Downtown Disney for October 20, 2013 (House of Blues, World of Disney, Precious Moments, and BabyCakes NYC)

by on October 25, 2013

While Morgan Crutchfield was getting a private tour of the Cinderella Castle Suite at the Magic Kingdom, I was ripping every last single hair out of my head trying to find a parking spot at Downtown Disney, the soon to be renamed Hyperion Wharf Disney Springs. In a stroke of mad genius, I decided to stop by both the Orlando Premium Outlet mall and Downtown Disney on a Sunday afternoon, which is apparently the equivalent of trying to ride Soarin’ on New Year’s Eve.

After pulling into the parking lot in front of T-REX and fruitlessly searching for a parking spot, I ended up driving all the way down to the lot that is in front of Cirque du Soleil – La Nouba. I still had to search for a spot in this lot, and thankfully someone was leaving during one of my trips going back and forth. I can’t even fathom how bad trying to find a parking spot will be when the Christmas shopping season comes.

Down by La Nouba they had a huge photo op set outside. There was a similar one over in the Marketplace section in front of Earl of Sandwich.
