Downtown Disney Details
July 20th, 2011 6:48 AM

Construction continues as many changes and new experiences are planned for the Marketplace, Plesure Island and the West Side of Downtown Disney.   As mentioned before, the new AMC Dine-In Theatres recently opened and has proven a huge success with luxurious seating and an extensive menu of appetizers, entrees, desserts and a full bar.

Reopening this summer, an extensive renovation of LEGO Imagination Center will increase the size of this store by nearly 3,500 s. ft. and add new LEGO models featuring scenes from classic Disney movies. 

The Orlando Harley-Davidson opened its newly expanded 3,635 sq. ft. store on the West Side. The largest and most interactive Harley merchandise store of its kind, guests are able to see and sit on some of the latest Harley-Davidson motorcycles and a brand new production studio lets guests be pictured in their favorite riding spot or transformed into real bikers.

Later this summer, Apricot Lane Boutique, a specialty retail store that offers celebrity-inspired branded apparel, affordable fashion jewelry, handbags and accessories, will open in the space the Harley-Davidson store previously occupied on Pleasure Island.

This fall, construction will begin on Splitsville, a 50,000 sq. ft. upscale entertainment center that combines bowling with billiards, dining, music and nightlife.  To make way for this experience, "Ridemakerz" currently located on the West Side, will move to the Marketplace.

On Pleasure Island some of the buildings are being removed that are not included in future plans for that area and new restaurants have already opened on the waterfront.

Downtown Disney continues to be a great place to visit for all ages and with no admission fees.   There is  atmosphere, entertainment, shopping and fantastic dining, both upscale and casual - truly something for everyone.  And now there are exciting changes happening that will make this enjoyable place even better, the way only Disney can!
