Artist Rendering of the New Waterfront District 'Hyperion Wharf' at Downtown Disney

And how about our new plans for Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort? A new vibrant waterfront district called “Hyperion Wharf” is in the works and this week you got a first look at what to expect in the future. The district will come to life with a nostalgic yet modern take on an early 20th century port city and amusement pier. By day, stylish boutiques and innovative restaurants will draw you in and by night, thousands of lights will transform the area into an electric wonderland. Thanks for the great comments on the post, and let us know what you’re thinking this weekend.

  • Why not make DTD Tortuga theme? and please a few less shops, so tired of glorified stores at Disney that sell junk or overpriced stuff add a few more places to do things. theater/dinner theater perhaps. Bring the Comedy shop back..least that was something different. If alcohol was a problem, dont serve it. People will just have to learn to be funny without alcohol. maybe karaoke some people seem to like that. just anything besides yet another store of stuff

  • I more of a question. Did they shut down the “Honey I shrunk the Audience”.

  • I love Walt Disney World. My FAVORITE part was The Adventurer’s Club! When will it come back???? PLEASE bring it back. We were there in August and missed it GREATLY!
