Yesterday, a friend to TMSM who lives in Orlando sent us information that Cap’n Jack’s Restaurant is scheduled to be closed permanently. On Tuesday they started cancelling reservations for the coming month, so that was the first sign. Then we received info that Cap’n Jack’s is supposed to close for good in mid August.
Earlier this year, we announced that Disney was going to be doing a complete make-over at Downtown Disney, renaming it “Disney Springs.” Capt’n Jack’s was on the list to be removed, so they can start a larger part of the construction. Signs have gone up at Downtown Disney and walkways have been closed already. This will be the largest area of construction thus far for the project. While I like having new things to look forward to, this makes me a little sad. I like Downtown Disney the way it is. It will be an adjustment, but I’m sure once the project is done, Downtown Disney will look great! More info to follow as we receive it!
