PHOTOS - Downtown Disney officially transitions to Disney Springs today - see the new guide map

Sep 29, 2015 in "Disney Springs"

Posted: Tuesday September 29, 2015 11:06am EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Downtown Disney name is officially no more, with the shopping, dining and entertainment district officially transitioning to the Disney Springs name today.

The new guide map now includes only the Disney Springs name, and makes no mention of the former Downtown Disney name.

Also included on the new map are the latest new additions, including Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar and Morimoto Asia.

My guess is some of the Town Center buildings will open first, mainly the ones nearest T-Rex and these may open around the same time Planet Hollywood re-opens (April I think). Once these first places open then I guess they might start to show the rest of Town Center as coming soon. But the re-imagined Planet Hollywood will be one of the main first openings

It still baffles me as to why the new maps do not show an outline of the Town Center and Springs labeled "Coming Soon" to help build excitement for the continuing expansion. It also seems like it will be tough to actually list everything in all of Disney Springs in the current format once everything opens.

Internal Memo: "Dear Designer, Thanks for updating the guide map on such short notice. Your commitment to work both nights and weekends is appreciated. Upon review, the 'GUIDEMAP' and 'Disney Springs' elements on the front page are barely visible due to insufficient contrast. Please make corrections and resubmit prior to today's review board meeting. Thank you, Upper Middle Manager"
