Last week, my fellow Disney Parks Blog author Jennifer Fickley-Baker shared fun storyline details about the newest neighborhood coming to Disney Springs, Town Center. I also wrote about my undeniable enthusiasm for the retail locations opening soon. This week, Walt Disney World Theme Park Senior Vice President, Jim McPhee conveyed his excitement for the project, confirming the opening of more than 30 new tenant locations by summer’s end. I think it’s clear that everyone here is ready for the debut of Town Center!
Opening in the coming month, the fourth Disney Springs neighborhood will focus on retail but will also offer several new dining options. Among them: Sprinkles Cupcakes with an available-all-day cupcake ATM Machine; Blaze Pizza, offering fast-fire’d custom built artisanal pizzas; Amorette’s Patisserie featuring petit cakes and signature dome cakes that are works of art; D-Luxe Burger with options for burger aficionados and milkshake connoisseurs (ours are made with gelato!); and two that I really can’t wait to try, both by James Beard Award-Winning Chefs … Homecoming: Florida Kitchen and Southern Shine, a farm-to-table concept by Chef Art Smith, and Tablas Frontera, with exquisitely crafted Mexican cuisine by Chef Rick Bayless.
It’s hard to believe, but when Town Center is complete, we’ll have doubled the number of shops, restaurants and other venues for our Disney Springs guests.
With many venues opening in less than a month, May can’t get here soon enough! Which location are you most excited about?
