We took a stroll round Disney Springs for lunch today, it’s really taking shape and exciting to see how it’s morphing from what was Downtown Disney to Disney Springs. We took a sneaky peak behind the miles of billboards whilst the construction changes are being made.

Last night we went for a stroll round Downtown Disney to see how they are getting on with the transformation into Disney Springs, it’s completion is not due for another year (Spring 2016). I’m pleased to report that the main multi-storey car park was open, we parked on the 4th floor in the hope of a view, but there wasn’t much of one!
The roads in are complete, but we were guided out past Cirque du Soleil, which added a few minutes onto the journey, as the way out hasn’t been finished yet. The walkways into Downtown Disney aren’t complete yet either with long billboards sectioning off areas whilst the building work continues.
The Downtown Disney redevelopment into Disney Springs is really taking shape, and extremely exciting to see. It’s a huge project for Disney with the addition of many more restaurants and shops to the area.
Last week we checked out the latest addition, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, it must be one of the smallest bar’s Disney has, but it’s packed with goodies.
This could be an interesting time-saver and extend your holiday a little on your last day.. On the Westside area of Downtown Disney (Parking Lot L & M) Virgin Atlantic offer facilities allowing you to check in for your Virgin Atlantic flight, get your boarding pass and drop off your bags for their secure delivery to the airport – so you can enjoy more time with the family at Disney and then arrive at the airport 2 hours before your flight’s due departure. The service is free to all Upper Class passengers, Flying Club Gold cardholders and Virgin Holidays passengers. There is a charge of $10 per person for all other Virgin passengers (providing they hold a confirmed seat). If you’re interested in taking up this service on your last day of your holiday in Orlando please read the full terms and conditions on Virgin’s Downtown Disney Check-in.
Downtown Disney is located about 15-20 minutes from most of our 500 Orlando villas, so why not drop off your bags and spend your last day at Disney.
