PHOTO REPORT: Disney Springs 2/10/16 (Town Center Nears Completion, STK, The Edison, ETC.)

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

Over the weekend, I paid a visit to Disney Springs to go to the movies (I saw “Hail Caesar!”, which I highly recommend if you love the Hollywood of the 1930’s and 40’s, similar to the era represented at Hollywood Studios), and I took some newsworthy photos to share while I was there. Let’s take a look at what’s new and exciting at what was Downtown Disney:

It looks like all of the sunrise high-line is finally complete, not that the structures have any real use…

  • I love all of the photo reports. It makes me feel like I’m there, and takes the sting off of not having a future trip planned for the first time in 16 years. Keep up the good work!

  • Yes, thank you for some great photo journalism.
    I agree, the High-line doesn’t look very useful now, but in the hot months, at least they can provide a break from the direct sunshine. Just wish they looked … more magical, but what can you do with iron beams?

  • I mean, I lived in Bronx, New York for 24 years and that’s what elevated tracks look like (although the Disney ones are much cleaner), so it’s a fairly accurate piece and it’s a good backstory element.
