With so many new additions to Disney Springs recently – Wine Bar George, Terralina Crafted Italian, 4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck and Chicken Guy!, to name just a few – you might be surprised to learn that we’re still announcing new locations.

As a huge fan of craft beer and classic American food, I can’t wait for the new City Works Eatery & Pour House to open on the West Side next summer. The restaurant and bar will offer plenty of high-def TVs including a 165-inch screen, perfect for viewing your favorite live sporting events.

Like the seven existing locations across the country, the Disney Springs space will offer 80 beers on tap including rare, limited supply, special tappings from local breweries and others from around the world. If barley and hops aren’t for you, a curated selection of popular wines will be available as well, ready to pair with bar bites, shareables, burgers and more.

^ Where is this going???? The only new builds happening on the West Side right now is the NBA Experience in the old DisneyQuest spot and Jaleo across from Splitsville.

^Based on the concept art (and what is left of the construction you mentioned), I'm thinking this is integrated into the NBA Experience complex.

Ahh, ok. That's really the only place I could figure this would be going also. I wonder why they wouldn't mention that?

We have one of these in Minneapolis and if you like beer you'll love this place. And those "80 beers" are the ones they carry at EVERY City Works, then they add another 30 local beers and ciders to hit a total of 110. At least this is how the MPLS and Chicago restaurants are run. Should be a great addition to the park.

^It feels very similar in concept to Yard House, which is a Darden concept we have in Orlando on International Drive.

^ Correct, they are very close. We have a Yard House here too. City Works just has a little more menu options, a slightly more upscale feel and the majority of their beers on tap including the one time batches and local selections. The great news for beer drinkers is that they flush the tap lines every 6 weeks to keep taste at a maximum unlike some places.

The Edison has sent us more information about their upcoming Halloween event celebrating 25 years of The Nightmare Before Christmas!
On Wednesday, Oct. 31, The Edison at Disney Springs will host a bone-chilling Halloween soirée in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Disney Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Guests are encouraged to pay tribute to the beloved cult classic by dressing in themed costumes for a ghoulishly good time. Tickets are $85 per person and guests must be 21 or older to attend. To purchase tickets visit: http://www.theedisonfla.com/halloween.

Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. to all manner of spooky spirits, goblins and ghosts. Ticket prices include a complimentary welcome cocktail, as well as wickedly delicious small bites and signature sips inspired by the film. Attendees can sink their fangs into the variety of passed hors d'oeuvres and enjoy creative cocktails cooked up by the restaurant’s talented kitchen and bar staff. The Edison's full food & beverage menu will also be available for purchase. An entertainment line-up Jack Skellington would be proud of will also be provided, complete with flying aerialists, costumed stilt-walkers, dancers, haunting live music, and more. Guests can dance the night away among a merry band of misfit monsters in The Edison’s fantasy world of holiday fun. Party-goers who post their photos and tag @theedisonfla #Nightmare25 will have the chance to win a gift card to be used during a future visit to The Edison at Disney Springs.

“We couldn’t be more excited to host this 25th anniversary celebration of a truly classic film, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas,’ at The Edison,” said Patina Restaurant Group Marketing Director, Kyle Collins. “From our sold out Gatsby evening in September to our upcoming one-year anniversary party on New Year’s Eve, themed events have been what our guests are asking for and the feedback has been phenomenal.”

With spookingly exciting give-aways, a costume contest and additional tasty take-home treats, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” Halloween soirée at The Edison is sure to be a boo-teautiful celebration.


There's still time to purchase tickets at http://www.theedisonfla.com/halloween!

Last weekend was the "Grand Re-Opening" of the World of Disney Store at Walt Disney World's Disney Springs! This is the largest Disney store on any Disney Parks resort property and the new make-over has given the store a wonderful, updated look!

For those of you who may not be totally aware of the store, it is located in the "Marketplace" section of Disney Springs and has been part of the that property for many years! You may remember Stitch spitting water at you from the roof of the store at some point (and yes, he is still there!)

The interior of the store has been completely renovated and given a touch of Disney "Magic!" You can see examples of this in the video below. Along with that new magic are completely new displays all over the store, new areas that can be changed to match a current holiday season or even a new movie release, and a much more wider, "open" feeling to the entire store!

We highly recommend checking it out next time you're at Disney Springs! Be sure to take a close look at everything on the walls! You may see some things come to like that you aren't expecting! :mickey:

Welcome to the newly re-imagined "World of Disney" store at Walt Disney World's Disney Springs!

IMG_8456.jpg
The new theming of the store includes artifacts that the animators who once inhabited this area have left behind.

IMG_8519.JPG
So be sure to check out those posters behind the cashier area and take a close look! You may see them move!

IMG_8490.JPG
The "Ink & Paint" area has some extra special magic! Be sure to spend some time in this area as well.

IMG_8458.JPG
Darcy from Disney Springs explains some of the inspiring touches are on display all around, including mystical movie posters, enchanted art and animation ink jars that spring to life with a trail of pixie dust.

IMG_8546.jpg

IMG_8542.jpg
We love the more "open" design of the store.

IMG_8546.jpg
It's easy to see across the store and find what you are looking for!

IMG_8555.jpg
Some of the merchandise that has been made available this year are super cute! I love these Minnie Ears inspired by Mickey Ice Cream bars that have a bite taken out of them!

IMG_8563.JPG
The "pencil tests" on the wall will come to life if you watch closely!

IMG_8631.jpg
There are new projections everywhere that add to the fun and excitement of the store. You'll see them on the floor, the walls, and pretty much everywhere you look!

IMG_8643.jpg
The new store just feels a bit more "sleek" and modern. It's a great update and very much compliments some of the new construction we've seen at Disney Springs over the past few years.

IMG_8849.jpg
This new area can easily be swapped out for different holidays!

IMG_8852.jpg
All the lightning and projections in this area to be changed to match whatever the current holiday is or a new film release.

IMG_8889.JPG
The new "Mickey Mouse Club" collection recently went on sale so here is an area of the store dedicated to those items.

IMG_8902.jpg
And I love all these new graphic tees!

IMG_8918.jpg
This retro style Haunted Mansion shirt is wonderful!

IMG_8921.jpg
This! This is my thoughts exactly!

IMG_8927.jpg
I would also agree with that statement!

IMG_8824.JPG
And just like that...

IMG_8828.JPG
The new World of Disney Store is open at Disney Springs! Be sure to check it out!
