Demolition Begins at West Side of Downtown Disney District

After the closure of several businesses in Downtown Disney District, construction has begun on the reimagining of the district’s west side. Walls were erected a few weeks ago, but not much work has been visible.

From inside Downtown Disney District, everything looks relatively normal. The edge of this awning has been stripped.

We could see a crane behind the buildings.

There are no more signs of the AMC Theater. “Celebrate Soulfully” artwork and signage decorate the colorful construction walls.

We went around to the parking lot of the Grand Californian Hotel and got a much better view of work.

  1. Hold up.

    In that last picture. Where is the monorail anywhere close to Downtown Disney? Are they planning an expansion from the Epcot line?

      1. There WAS, it was just renamed to Disney Springs. Disney World had a Downtown Disney for many years. I was just as confused by Walt Disney World News Today not specifying this is a story about Disneyland.

        1. Your right. Many stories do not make it apparent which park is being talked about. These bloggers are locals and assume everybody is as up on Disney as they are.
          How hard would it be to include location into first line of story?
