    The creative challenge Disney's Imagineering team, including Executive Creative Director Theron Skees, has been tasked with – to transform the area currently known as Downtown Disney into Disney Springs, a destination that’s being expanded to include more than 150 shopping, dining and entertainment experiences.

    From an Imagineering perspective, this means developing a storyline and creating a sense of time and place that influences everything from the architecture to the costumes.

    Here’s the first piece, in which Theron introduces the Disney Springs project and Imagineering’s role in it.


    The first “neighborhood” in Disney Springs – the opening of The Landing – is set for 2015. Construction on Disney Springs will continue into 2016,

    Thanks for sharing. As far as I can see, DTD needed to be freshened up and I kind of like the story line and the design. As a rule we don't hit DTD or rarely do. We may have to rethink it now.

    There isn't much at DTD that I'll miss, so this will be a welcome change. My concern lies in the thought that there will be charges for parking, and that it will be nothing more than a vast outdoor shopping mall (as it pretty much is already).
