VIDEO - Go behind the construction walls for a look at the Town Center in Disney Springs

Apr 18, 2016 in "Disney Springs"

Posted: Monday April 18, 2016 3:57pm EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Town Center at Disney Springs is just under a month away from opening, and today we have a behind-the-walls look at what awaits.

Hear from Imagineering Creative Director Dave Hoffman, Associate Production Designer Briana Ricci, and Art Director Jeff Abraham.

More than doubling the number of shops and restaurants, the Spanish “Revival” style architecture of the Town Center draws from a rich history of explorers that landed in Florida centuries ago. At the heart of the Town Center is The Spring, a crystal clear body of water that provides spectacular views from the surrounding restaurants. 

Retailers include Anthropologie, LACOSTE, Under Armour, kate spade new york, Sephora and Oakley. With Tablas Frontera, D-Luxe Burger, Homecoming - Florida Kitchen and Southern Shine adding to the dining line-up at Disney Springs.

Photo update as of Wednesday, June 10, 2020. One of the four "semi-permanent" kiosks between Planet Hollywood and Disney Style has been removed. The portable shrubbery screens hide the underground plumbing and electrical connections. This kiosk was actually removed in May (or before), but I wasn't able to capture a photo until today. Update as of Monday, June 15, 2020. With expanded seating now, it's as if the kiosk never existed. The old kiosk was where the table and chairs in the center of the photo is located.

Photo update as of Friday, May 22, 2020. During the two month COVID-19 closure, two stores in Disney Spring Town Center underwent a minor refurbishment/redesign: MAC and Origins. The window coverings were off today. I could not tell a difference in MAC, but here are a couple of photos inside Origins.

Yeah, fine Italian cuisine brought to you by the same people who serve fine seafood - Darden Restaurants.

Because it was cheap...and fast.

There are a few good ones here in the burbs but not as many as you would think. Now good pizza? Plenty of them!

I'm a country boy that's easy to please. I like Olive Garden. :)

Ralph’s has gone downhill, based on my visit last fall. Neighborhood has a different vibe now as Mexicans and Asians moved in as the Italians moved to the suburbs. So go to the suburbs? 🤷‍♂️

As an Italian from NYC I appreciate your efforts!

The recently opened an Olive Garden in center city Philadelphia. I cannot understand why anyone would go to an Olive Garden in a city filled with great Italian restaurants!

It's really just because of the quantity of the food, not the quality. It's not like it's bad, but it's a bit more then it should. I feel the same with Cheesecake Factory, not bad but it's more then it should be price-wise. Fun fact, the Station Square location is actually cheaper then the Robinson location. That just seems completely backwards.

Leave my garlic sticks alone!! :( I never get the flair of Buca Di Beppo. Went to one in Pittsburgh and wasn't impressed. I was more worried about the prices (California Grill prices what the hell). I think the insane prices had to do with the nearly 15 conventions going at same time in downtown Pitt.

I actually love the bubble tea smoothies. They have some that don’t use milk and are more like slushees. I would love to see a stand selling these some where.
