There have been so many additions and changes over the past few months as the Disney Springs expansion project is coming to completion so I thought I would give you an update on what can now be found here! It's all very exciting to see it come to fruition. Disney Springs is now a destination all of its own and worth taking a little time to explore. Getting here is no longer the chaotic problem that it once was last year. There are now two parking structures..each equipped with the new smart technology to notify you exactly how many parking spaces are available on each floor. There are now two new bus depot locations, one at West Side and one for Marketplace, and don't forget the new skyway pedestrian bridge if you find yourself parking across the street from Disney Springs. There's no more having to cross four lanes of traffic.
Frontera Cocina is a Mexican themed venue inspired by chef Rick Bayless. This location is currently accepting reservations and participates in the Disney Dining Plan, so if you are planning a visit soon and would like to dine here, please let me know so that I can work on securing you a dining reservation. The menus are posted outside the front doors of the restaurant, allowing you an opportunity to check out the options offered here before you enter.
As of this week, Homecoming: Florida Fresh is officially open but will not begin accepting reservations until July 21st. I do not have confirmation at this time whether or not this establishment will be included on the Disney Dining Plan, so stay tuned as more details become available. I have been waiting for this venue in particular to open so I can be sure to try on when I head back down to check out all the new places and things! Again, if this location appeals to you, and you would like to give it try please let me know so that I can be sure to try to secure you a dining reservation.
Vivoli Gelato is a true Italian inspired gelato buffet! I could certainly have some fun here...haha!
Minnie fans will fall in love with the Minnie Cake. This one features a Lemon Chiffon Cake and White Chocolate Mousse with the Pate de Fruit is Strawberry. You can also find domed cakes fashioned after your other favorite classic Disney characters: Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Pluto and are available for order and pick up.
You're almost to the weekend!
