Well, today is the day. The street signs have been reflecting the change, as well as maps and such on location…. Officially, Downtown Disney is no more, and Disney Springs is in effect. Oh the changes. I know a lot of Disney fans don’t care for that. I for one usually fight change, but since moving to Central Florida, my horizons have opened up a bit.
I love Downtown Disney, I always have. I love the night life there, the shops, the food. Heck, I still miss Pleasure Island. The clubs and the New Years Eve countdowns nightly were so much fun. But alas, it’s only a distant memory. We all got used to the change. Even me, who hates change.
If you go to the DTD area now, or even in the not so distant past, you can see ALL the changes and construction that’s going on. Everything is evolving, and new stores and restaurants are being added. That’s a good thing. I know a lot of people are not happy with the construction and such, but it’s going to be so nice once it’s finished. The new walkways are opening across the road, to make getting to the area safer for guests. The parking garage is super easy to use and convenient. It’s going to be great once all is said and done, you can see that when you visit, it’s exciting.
So, today marks the end of and era, Downtown Disney. Disney Springs is here to stay, and it’s really coming along nicely. For those who fight change, it’s ok. After all, I know a lot of you out there still call Hollywood Studios, MGM, and that’s fine. For me, I’ll probably still call Disney Springs, Downtown Disney, for awhile. Old habits die hard. I’m excited to see what’s to come still, what about you? Tell us your thoughts in the comments, as feedback is always appreciated! ~M
