Downtown Disney has been undergoing a large refurbishment for over a year as it transforms into Disney Springs. The good news is that the new aspects are now starting to become a reality!
The Landing, which is located between the Marketplace and West Side (formerly Pleasure Island) already has a few stores and dining areas open. Take a look at the new ways you can celebrate your runDisney accomplishment!
Managed by the award-winning Gibsons Restaurant Group, this dining experience is one of the most unique! Not only will you enjoy fantastic surf and turf for lunch or dinner, you can also go on a private cruise in an amphibicar! Your dream boat from the ’30s, ’40s or ’50s will take you on a 20 minute guided tour of Downtown Disney.
Erin McKenna’s Bakery
A sweet treat is a great way to celebrate, especially after a long distance accomplishment! Erin McKenna’s Bakery focuses on all natural ingredients like agave or vegan sugar, along with non-GMO Canola Oil or Coconut Oil. They also do not bake with soy or dairy and offer gluten-free and egg-free options! Choose from cupcakes, cookies, donuts, tea cakes, bagels and more!
Vivoli il Gelateria
This world-famous, family-run gelato shop has been in Florence, Italy for over 85 years and now has opened in Downtown Disney! Enjoy authentic Italian gelati, sorbetti, espresso drinks and more. (We’ve heard from one of our Italian friends that this is the BEST!)
Meals and desserts aren’t the only way to celebrate in Downtown Disney, although even more restaurants are on the way. Stay tuned as additional stores open in the new Disney Springs including: Zara, Tommy Bahama, Lilly Pulitzer, Pandora, Ugg and much more!
