'Disney Springs' has today been confirmed to cast members as the expansion set to completely transform the Downtown Disney area. The
media announcement planned for toda
y has been pushed back to what will likely be later this week. However, the following highlights were confirmed today to cast members.
The name of the new Downtown Disney will be 'Disney Springs.'
The theming will be that of a beautiful lush, old Florida feel, featuring lots of new water ways, water features, and shade.
Two parking garages will be constructed, one on the Marketplace side, and one on the West Side near Cirque du Soleil. This will free up space taken by the existing ground level parking to be used for new restaurants and shops.

Many new restaurants and shops will be added as part of the expansion, with most being new to the Orlando area. No specific vendors have been confirmed so far.
A walkway bridge will be constructed from the Rainforest Cafe to the TREX area to improve guest flow.
Captain Jacks Restaurant will be closing, but all cast will be relocated to other restaurants.
