Disney Springs, which was inspired by Florida’s waterfront towns and natural beauty, is nearing completion on its largest expansion in history. It is exciting to see the area emerge as a new waterfront district with world-class shopping, unique dining and high-quality entertainment. Disney Springs has four distinct neighborhoods to explore: The Landing, Marketplace, West Side and Town Center and will eventually have more than 150 retail, dining and entertainment offerings.

Watch the Disney Parks Blog for more information and opening dates at Disney Springs.


  • How exciting! I am curious to know if any of the shops will honor AP or DVC discounts, particularly Na Hoku. Will Vera Bradley be carrying all her patterns or only the Disney?? Hopefully, the jewelry store will be open when I am visiting, mid-May.

  • When will the shops for people with average incomes be added? Way too upscale. I will wander through perhaps but spend? Nope I will save my money for the parks.

  • Is there any news on The Edison as far as opening dates?? Opening 2016 is just so vague!

  • When is Sprinkles opening? And what is the opening date for the new additions? please include that on the Disney Springs website.

  • Will the new restaurant venues be included on the dining plan? And when will reservations be available for these?

  • To me the biggest appeal to DTD was its uniqueness. Restaurants and shops which aren’t otherwise readily available.
    Many of the above listed shops are available at our local malls. While I love the Disneyfied partnerships such as Dooney and Burke, Pandora etc, they create a uniqueness despite being a chain retailer. I just don’t get typical chain retailers being in Disney Springs. I hope they are all going to sell cool Disney inspired products which will be exclusive to the World.

  • When is Blazes opening????? How about the Frontera restaurant????

  • Way too upscale. This is sad.

  • Unless I missed it, I don’t see Tommy Bahama anymore??
    I recall seeing it in previous posts. Is it open already, or have they decided not to open in Disney Springs??? Thx

  • So much going on, the new additions are SPECTACULAR……I have already enjoyed some of the new venues, can’t wait to see the continouation.

  • Excited for Trophy Room, going to be a one of a kind experience! Thank you Disney for bringing a fresh as well as magical destination to the area!

  • Disney Springs is getting better and better…

  • I can’t wait for the coca cola store

  • I can’t wait to see the Coca-Cola Store at Disney Springs awesome! I love to see it in November 2016!

  • I am glad that they are adding some more shops, I am eager to see it all done!

  • Where is the Pandora store?

  • Are those in addition to the already announced venues such as Uniqlo? Do you also have a tentative opening date for that store? So excited!

  • The bottom four shops in the first column are the top four shops in the second collumn. These four aren’t coming in with two shops, are they? I look forward to seeing how many of these store are open for my trip in May.

  • FYI – you’ve doubled “American Threads, Volcom, Kipling, and Francesca’s”
