Signs of the future are springing up across Downtown Disney this month at Walt Disney World Resort as the area transforms into Disney Springs. Several new retail locations have opened in area to be known as The Landing. Once complete, The Landing will be home to memorable dining such as STK, Morimoto Asia and The BOATHOUSE and unique boutique shopping. Here is a brief look at these newest additions.

  • So excited to go the Gluten Free bakery! I have heard awesome things about Babycakes and can’t wait to try some of the products!!! My daughters live in NYC and rave about it! Great job Disney!!!

  • Coming down in a week and can’t wait to see the new stores. The bakery looks real good.

  • Is there a phone number for Art of Shaving or do appointments need to be made on site??

    • @Bill – Appointments for a haircut or shave are suggested and can be made by calling 407-560-8320.

  • Thanks Steven for the great tip on Erin Mckenna’s Bakery NYC

    We used to love it when it was Baby Cakes before it was closed for the DTD Changes….. Pleased to say the Hubby and I visited it yesterday after we seen this blog and OMG it was really yummy!!!!!!

    Been ages where we could enjoy the Gluten free treats and have a range of choices in one place.

    I recommend this bakery to any one with or without special allergy/ dietary needs 🙂

    • @Crystal – Glad to hear you visited the new location. I hope you enjoyed a doughnut (or two) for me 🙂

  • I am VERY happy to hear Babycakes is open again! We need more Vegan options at WDW. ( the coconut donut is the best! ) Looking forward to stopping by all locations next week and seeing the progression of Disney Springs.

  • In your reply to Yulady you said you like the image of those doughnuts because you were super hungry. Might there be another reason you like the ‘image’? (A not-so-hidden Mickey)

  • Has anyone been in the Havaianas store? I’m hoping they have some cute Disney flip flops!

    • @Noreen – Havaianas does have some Disney items in their shop.

  • Great to see the Erin McKenna’s/Babycakes NYC returning. Will it still have kosher certification? It was the only place on Disney property to get freshly made Kosher food.

    • @Chad – Yes, the bakery still has kosher certification.

  • Our family was so happy to see the return of Erin Mckenna’s babycakes. Several members of my family have allergy problems and these treats are the only kind they can enjoy. And Chapel Hats is awesome.

    • @Yulady – I recently visited The Landing area and loved seeing the new additions. I love the image of those donuts (I was super hungry while writing this story 🙂
