Well, we figured out where the Coca-Cola retail location is going

Looks like there may be a rolling belt along the building moving bottles around, but that’s just our guess. And no, it’s not World of Coke…

  • Any idea why D-Tech isn’t releasing any Android phone cases? I have a Samsung and would love a case, but they only have iPhone cases. What gives?

  • Your pics are great. Just hard to dress up something that’s barely above the outlet malls, with restaurants while nice, are very high priced for how low quality they are. Nothing much fun to do at Disney Springs except open your wallet for trinkets.

  • Thank you for the pics these reports really brighten my day. More Joffrey’s please and thank you! I do not hate Starbucks at all, but enjoy Joffrey’s smooth flavor over Starbucks (even their blonde roast). So happy each park has at least one outside Joffrey’s kiosk (well except MK, though probably several kiosks there do haveJoffrey’s) – the dedicated kiosks like AK java island and the 3 in Epcot are very nice. You need that pick me up right outside Ellen’s Energy Crisis. So to see another Joffrey’s spring up at Springs is wonderful.
    If DTD did keep adding Starbucks, if/when NBA Experience falls through (I can dream), 2017 DQ converts to the worlds ONLY 5 story Starbucks! Actually that might be a more satisfying day and pack in many more people than DQ!
