Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs may not be a new theme park, but it doesn’t mean it won’t have that Disney magic.
“Disney Springs was not only about bringing diversity of retail, destination dining and elaborating on fantastic entertainment, but it was really about bringing a story to this venue that has been around for three decades,” said Theron Skees, executive creative director with Walt Disney Imagineering, in a video.
The project, expected to be completed sometime in 2016, will follow a historic timeline that will follow the change of a small waterfront town into a larger, growing and expanding metropolitan destination.
The complex will have more than 150 shopping, dining and entertainment experience. It will also create 1,200 construction jobs and about 4,000 operational jobs.
Check out the Disney video about the story and how the project will evolve as construction continues.
