Rumored retailers and restaurants for new 'Disney Springs' concept

Much of Orlando has been abuzz about the possible rebranding of Downtown Disney into a new concept known as "Disney Springs." Now, it seems some information about the kind of retail and dining options that will occupy the newly revamped real estate has been leaked to local media outlets.

So far, rumored customers include high-end cosmetics company MAC and luxury designer Dior. There will be several new Disney-branded stores as well, including Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar and Walt's Place, a casual, family dining establishment.

There's also the rumor that the Planet Hollywood currently at Downtown Disney would relocate to the $200 million I-Drive Live Project where it would join a 200-room Planet Hollywood hotel.

This has been very big news in Orlando because Disney is such a huge economic engine for us. It is also a window in Disney's plans for the future. Although "outside" ventures like Rainforest Café and movie theater chain AMC have been tenants of Downtown Disney for quite some time, the presence of non-Disney retail stores like MAC and Dior is something of a departure for The House of Mouse. These retailers also seem to appeal to older, more financially established customers, suggesting that perhaps Disney Springs will be less family-focused than Downtown Disney.

Downtown Disney was founded in 1975 as Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village. It was brought under the Disney umbrella as a way to entice people to stay in and around Disney World longer and has undergone several renovations since its inception.
