From Wiki:

Downtown Disney, originally the Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village, is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando, Florida opened on March 22, 1975. The complex is open to the public, requires no admission fee, and offers complimentary parking to all guests. Buses and water taxis operated by Disney Transport provide free transportation to and from Downtown Disney to Walt Disney World resort guests.
Notable tenants include Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba, Disney Quest, the House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, the Lego Imagination Center, World of Disney, The Art of Disney, AMC Downtown Disney 24 with Dine-In Theatres, and Rainforest Cafe.
On March 14, 2013, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman Tom Staggs announced that Downtown Disney would be revitalized as Disney Springs, a revitalized dining-retail-entertainment district inspired by Florida’s waterfront towns. The expansion project will include 150 new tenants and the construction of two parking structures. The Disney Springs will expand twice in size with Team Mickey and similar stores will grow with more merchandise.

Michele is a life long Disney fan, and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday’s. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
