WDW had a press event for 1000 new bench seats for F! and 3 separate Grand Openings for Art of Animation.

So yes, it will. ;)

Unfortunately what is being built in that corner at the "hub" doesn't look anything like the ZD store pictured in the concept art.

Ideally Zach Divine's will have dancing, just like Splitsville.

I think very few get this joke.

Actually, expanding World of disney IS happening. They announced it when they announced Disney Springs way back in March 2013.

They would just expand the World of Disney store and make it even bigger. Less overhead and upkeep;)

While it will be great to get an Ipsum Primis store, I hope Zach Divine's still makes it into this incarnation.

The model is located in a back room upstairs in Splitsville and is not available to be seen by the general public.

Why not? Whats 75 more new stores selling all the same stuff? It sounds exactly like something Disney would do. I was just saying to my wife "you know, I wish we had more places to buy that same Disney mug!" :confused:

Here is a video of it from when Disney Springs was first announced. I don't think the model is available to be viewed by the public.

I heard a rumor that somewhere there is a really cool model of what Disney Springs will look like once completed. What I heard is that the model uses HD projections (like on the castle) to come alive. Does anyone know how we can get a look?

I was told by a reliable source that Disney Springs has a lot of leases signed and they're waiting to finalize two or three more and then will make the announcement. Many are vendors not currently located in this part of the country. Whether any of this is true, remains to be seen.

There were short term leases signed because they new all the upheaval that was coming. This project has the logistics of DCA 2.0. And it should be examined with that in mind. IMO.
