Disney Springs’ Town Center to Debut May 15th

A new surge in shopping at Disney Springs will begin May 15. That’s the day stores will begin opening in the new Town Center area of Walt Disney World’s remodeled retail center.

Town Center shops will open in phases, Disney has said. The majority of the new stores will be operating by July 1, according to a post on the official Disney Parks Blog.

Town Center is the latest step in the Disney Springs project, which re-imagined the Downtown Disney area as a small, turn-of-the-century Florida town. This retail district is being constructed in what was a portion of the Downtown Disney parking lot, near the entrance to the old Mannequins nightclub, which is now Morimoto Asia restaurant.

Among the retailers coming to Town Center are Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, Pandora, Tommy Bahama, Under Armour, Coca-Cola Store, Trophy Room, Edward Beiner, Lacoste, Sperry, Zara, Sephora, UGG, Vera Bradley, Volcom and others.

Disney officials have said they expect Disney Springs to be complete this year. Among the elements still under construction are a refurbished Planet Hollywood restaurant, STK steakhouse and a second parking garage.
