SPRING INTO DISNEY SPRINGS
Downtown Disney is no more… Introducing Disney Springs.
Wow. There is nothing more hip, happening, new and exciting at Walt Disney World than Disney Springs. Gone are all the old, empty clubs from the old Pleasure Island and a whole new world is popping up.
This month we take an in depth look at the changes happening as Downtown Disney transforms into Disney Springs.
We kick this issue off with a look at the Story of Disney Springs. We look at the transformation from Downtown Disney to Disney Springs. Next we talk about the new dining options, shipping, and entertainment that have been added.
Dave kicks off Helping Hands by looking at whether a first time visitor should make time to go over to Disney Springs. Tricia looks at the First Aid options around WDW. Scrooge or Splurge takes a look at the live performances at Downtown Disney (House of Blues and Cirque du Soleil) and whether they are worth the money. Our photography tip this month is about taking great pictures around Disney Springs.
There are some really cool locations this month in the Best of WDW. Living with the Land is the attraction of the month. The Boardwalk Villas is the resort, Olivia’s Café is the restaurant and Bayview Gifts in the Contemporary Resort rounds out the list as the Gift Shop.
Wally is back and is Nuts about WDW, which kicks off this month’s Section k! And we’re introducing a new monthly adventure - Parks in the Parks - which follows the
adventures of Callie and Landon as they explore WDW. That’s followed by how to build a Minnie Springtime Wind Chime. How cool is that? Next comes our monthly crossword, coloring page and word search. And Cindi talks about some really cool line games.
The Fanzone is packed this month with lots of good stuff. Our poll results lead things off followed by part 2 of our Kids Remember Contest Winner interview. James W. talks about some of his favorite Disney Moments and Greg tells us what’s going on in the world of Vinylmation and Tsum Tsums.
This month we have a Special Report with a peek inside the Cinderella Castle Suite. Oh Boy! There are some incredible pictures here.
Around the World is the last section in the magazine every month, but it really helps us end with a bang. This month we have The News, followed by a look at the brand new Ampicars at Disney Springs. Terri is back with more Disney Springs trivia. Kim brings us some History and we end the issue with a Throwdown between Disney Springs at WDW, versus Downtown Disney in Disneyland.
Now that’s a special issue. I hope you enjoy!
