    If you’ve visited Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort lately, you’ve most likely noticed the many changes underway as the area transforms into Disney Springs – it’s the largest expansion in Downtown Disney history and, when completed, will double the area’s number of dining and retail options. Through this expansion, guests can continue to enjoy more than 70 themed and immersive shopping, dining and entertainment venues day and night.

    The surrounding roadways and parking areas at Downtown Disney are growing too and will eventually offer easier access to the area. Two new renderings showcase the work that is already underway, which includes widening Lake Buena Vista Drive from seven to 10 lanes and constructing two multilevel garages. Two pedestrian bridges are also planned that will help lead guests into Disney Springs near the current Marketplace side, while the other will offer access in through the West Side.

    The changes will also include a new I-4 interchange that will offer guests direct access to Disney Springs.
    All of this work is part of the area’s transformation into Disney Springs, which will continue into 2016. The first phase of the expansion called The Landing, will open in 2015 to offer lakefront shopping and dining.

    I'm really pleased about the direct route from the I4 to Disney Springs.

    ...I'm ashamed to admit going from Downtown Disney back to the villa is the one journey I can't manage without the satnav!
