New buildings and features in the transformation of Downtown Disney to Disney Springs are rapidly taking form. Let’s take a ride on the Characters in Flight balloon and see what’s behind the construction fences.
A new bridge is being built connecting the Rainforest Cafe and Lego Store areas. It’s interesting how the shape is divided into sections. It looks like it will be more than a boardwalk, and may have additional shopping or food and beverage.
It looks like the rear wall of a new building has formed. The large building behind it is the former Mannequins nightclub. Note the complex construction walls at the always busy Raglan Road Irish pub.
This is the roof of a former cast services building. The arrows point to a door and stairs leading down to the building. To guests, this large flat area was the top of the hill and viewing area of an outdoor stage.
The large open area at the top of the photo is where the Comedy Warehouse used to be.
