Disney has launched a new website to promote Disney Springs - the new shopping, dining and entertainment district taking the place of Downtown Disney.

Separate from the main Walt Disney World website, the very elegantly designed http://www.disneysprings.com gives an overview of all the shopping, dining and entertainment offerings at Disney Springs.

Operating hours for each location, tips for visiting, and maps are all included - along with suggestions on things to do during the day, night and tomorrow.

That home page made my brain hurt. But it's simple and functional.

That's quite the range of emotions on display.

Thanks for the update. I was afraid it wouldn't last. I don't think cookies can hold up to the brutal Florida heat. It was owned by Iced Bakery. I think it is still in business but not sure. I also agree about the new website. I like it but it is very busy and a little weird to navigate. I know it is just a big lifestyle center like mall but it is very well done from what I've seen so far and at least the dining locations are unique. I had rather the money go into the parks but the crowds have outgrown what was once Downtown Disney so I guess it is a necessary evil. The new website really presents Disney Springs as a destination so all in all I say well done Disney.

I like that it has it's own website. I find it quite userfriendly, unlike the main Disney World page. Everything you need is right there and the information is complete...it doesn't just direct you to the things it wants you to look at. I can see what people say about the animation making you dizzy. That seems unnecessary. But I do like the photographs and the vibe that it's giving off. It does make it seem exciting. I'm also amazed that there are 42 dining options. I assume that includes every snack bar, etc. but still that's impressive. There's not a lot different in stores though from when it was branded as Downtown Disney. I hope Disney decides to take this format to the parks and makes separate websites for each that are this iPad/touch screen sort of style.

Loving this new image.

The other pages look nice. The whole "now" and "tomorrow" pages are horrible, though. I agree about the menu bar, too. Just leave it there.

No, I don't think it's because you're getting too old. www.disneysprings.com is just a terrible example of web design. Just because HTML5 lets you animate things does't mean that everything has to move around. And the menu bar disappearing and reappearing...sometimes simpler is better.

Maybe I'm getting too old, but that website makes my head hurt. Everything moves and zooms in and out and there's barely any white space. Wow! Sensory overload.

Unfortunately Flour and Sugar closed - see the post from @WDWtraveler at the end of this thread http://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/marketplace-causeway-construction.879954/page-8

I looked for the cookie kiosk on the new Disney Springs site and I don't see it. It's called Flour and Sugar. Does anyone know if it is still open? I went to Earl of Sandwich a few days ago but I didn't walk down to the causeway. Out of all of the Florida inspired cookies they have, there was one that I liked. If anyone knows please reply.
