PHOTOS: Walls Come Down and Walkways Open in Disney Springs, Revealing “The Landing”

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Walls came down around the former Pleasure Island bridge area (near the Adventurer’s Club site) over the Thanksgiving weekend, revealing new facades, concept art, and more for The Landing, the replacement land for PI courtesy of the Disney Springs makeover project of Downtown Disney. Let’s see what’s new and exciting:

Sign is up, but nothing is on it…

As much as there have been complaints that the Town Center looks fairly bland, the Landing has some really pretty elements

The Landing neighborhood in Disney Springs will open Spring 2015, although the area will likely not be finished by that time.
