    Pleasure Island to become new waterfront district Hyperion Wharf

    A new 120 acre water front district called "Hyperion Wharf" will take the place of the existing Pleasure Island at the heart of Downtown Disney. Along with a whole new look will be 1500 new restaurant seats, new shopping and new entertainment offerings
    The district will come to life with a nostalgic yet modern take on an early 20th century port city and amusement pier. By day, stylish boutiques and innovative restaurants will draw you in and by night, thousands of lights will transform the area into an electric wonderland.

    Taking its name from Hyperion, the Greek god of light, as well as the street on which Walt Disney built his first major animation studio, the wharf district will also feature a relaxing lakeside park and enhanced pedestrian walkways. And its diverse eateries will expand dining availability at Downtown Disney by more than 25 percent.

    Along with the new wharf district, other projects are underway at Downtown Disney, including:
    An extensive renovation of Lego Imagination Center, which will increase its overall footprint by nearly 3,500 square-feet and add new Lego exterior models featuring scenes from classic Disney movies.
    Enhancements at AMC Theatres that will take the movie-going experience at Downtown Disney to the next level with new digital technology, a Concession Stand of the Future and Florida’s first Fork & Screen Theater; and…
    Numerous new or renovated retail shops and merchandise vignettes, as well as additional atmosphere entertainment, throughout Downtown Disney.
    Construction on the district begins immediately and it’s scheduled to be completed in 2013.

    You can see the original announcment at First Look: Waterfront District
