State of the Springs: Disney Springs Construction Update ~ January 2016

Our first update on Disney Springs will be a nice overview of what has been added lately and what else is expected to be on the way.

Starting off we take a look at what will be the new bus transportation terminal, this will be a definite upgrade from the current situation and more centralized to the property:

Probably the most exciting concept released is for a new restaurant call The Edison  “Industrial Gothic” -style restaurant, bar and nighttime destination themed to a 1920s-period power plant. In addition to classic American food and cocktails, The Edison will feature nightly entertainment including contortionists, palm readers, DJs and more.
