Celebrating the art of pastry making, Amorette’s Patisserie features timeless classic and contemporary pastries in this unique high-end shop owned and operated by Disney.

As guests enter Town Center around The Spring area, they will be greeted at the Welcome Center, a place where they can relax and take in the clear water with lush landscape along the water’s edge.

Kalogridis, president Walt Disney World Resort. “Guests will enjoy an experience unlike any other in Central Florida with even more opportunities to shop in unique and distinctive stores and enjoy world-class dining. Disney Springs offers something for everyone and does it in a way that only Disney can. It truly is the place to be.

So…another mall? I miss the Downtown Disney of my Florida girl youth. The unique restaurants, stores, performances and entertainment. The area of Pleasure Island was already closed :/ whom many parents and young Disney lovers used to enjoy. This is just another step in making a giant sellout mall. Florida mall has all of these stores, including a massive Disney store, plus a hotel directly attached to it, and then some. Go ahead and make your mall. Disney Springs isn’t even a real thing, there aren’t any naturally occurring springs there, what a sham.

Moving to Florida in April and can’t wait to see what’s new. I do miss all the old things, Pleasure Island was really fun.
I hope Disney doesn’t ruin the magical parts of Disney with mall shops it will be very disappointing .
