    I'm reading in other places that there will be a lot of new shops and bars/restaurants including an Apple Store, a Marvel Store and a Trader Sam Enchanted Tiki bar, similar to the one at Disneyland.

    I hope it doesn't become just another mall

    it looks nice, but massive...


    I wouldnt be against it being a mall actually.. it would make shopping easier for us, since we dont have a car and dont leave Disney.

    Still, I dont look forward to walking through it if its THAT big

    I so hope they pull this off. We were at DTD recently and it is a tired, worn place with not much to recommend it. Doing away with PI as it was seems to have been a costly error on Disney's part. I know that many, many people now skip DTD and just go to CityWalk.

    I think a multi level parking garage will be a good thing. Better use of space and all that jazz. They could probably use a couple of them! They will need to keep them safe though. Parking garages can be a place for unsavory characters to hang out and cause trouble. I would hope it would be well lighted and at least an approximation of security.

    It's well past time for WDW to do something new and innovative and INTERESTING with DTD.

    We did nosey around Splitsville when last there. If you are a bowler or pool player you'll enjoy it. The use of space seemed odd to us. Not nearly as many lanes as you would think. Lots of place for dining and drinking...






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!

    A parking garage would be great! Parking over there is a nightmare

    I have my fingers crossed they put in a Jamba Juice like DTD in CA has

    Can't believe I missed hearing about this.

    Having done a little reading, I can say it's about time!

    From what I have read Planet Hollywood will become an Observatory! While Cap'n Jack's Restaurant is to close alltogether!

    I think it's exciting and hope that it's just more than shops as to be honest I don't go to Disney to shop in Malls and outlets bla bla bla! lol
