WDWNT Reporter Dirk Wallen visited Downtown Disney over the weekend and has some newsworthy photos to share with us from his trip, so let’s take a look:



Work continues on the Marketplace bridge


Some new pins were released this week, including Mardi Gras…


President’s Day…


And Valentine’s Day


Signs on the shops around the Landing have indeed started to go up, beginning with Chapel Hats


Scaffolding has come down at the BOATHOUSE


Work is wrapping up out by the dock for BOATHOUSE as well


The “hangar” restaurant is still unannounced


But we can see there is an outdoor seating area disguised as a suspended boat


Work on the shores of the West Side continue, just across from Starbucks and Harley Davidson


From upstairs at Planet Hollywood, we can get a good look at the work on the Town Center and the finishing touches for the Orange parking structure


By 2016, the Town Center will be standing in this space

The outlet malls in Orlando are nicer than this. What a waste of space. Disney has become 99% about making money, and 1% guest retention, and ZERO percent enjoyment/guest experience. It’s all about efficiency for them. A shame.
