This Summer Blockbuster Experiences Will Debut Across All Four Walt Disney World Theme Parks

Disney Springs and Water Parks Make a Splash

Disney guests will spend their first summer at Disney Springs as it continues its transformation.  The charming waterfront town, comprising The Landing, Marketplace and West Side, expands to debut its fourth neighborhood, Town Center, adding more shops, restaurants and architectural detail than ever.

  • New high-profile tenants are coming onboard at Disney Springs, including Anthropologie, Under Armour, kate spade, Sephora and Lucky Brand, among others. Other new shops opening in 2016 include: Zara, Tommy Bahama, Lilly Pulitzer, UNIQLO, PANDORA, UGG, L'Occitane en Provence and Edward Beiner.
  • A total of 32 new tenants will be coming to Disney Springs this summer, including 29 retail shops and three new dining venues.
  • Morimoto Asia recently celebrated its grand opening and more new eateries are firing up the scene in 2016 including the upscale STK steakhouse with the only rooftop dining in Disney Springs; The Edison, a lavish, "industrial Gothic"-style restaurant, bar and nighttime destination; Sprinkles, the world's first cupcake bakery; Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza, a modern-day "pizza joint" with artisanal pies; and the reimagined, star-themed Planet Hollywood with new outdoor terrace and live entertainment.
  • Celebrity Chef Rick Bayless and renowned Chef Wolfgang Puck join master Chef Masaharu Morimoto in a growing collection of James Beard Award winning chefs at Disney Springs.
  • At Cirque du Soleil's "La Nouba," the new B-Boys hip-hop, breakdancing threesome showcase a rare mix of rhythm, strength and "how-did-they-do-that?" moves. As part of the show's ongoing evolution, the masterful Aerial Bamboo act joins recent additions of madcap clowns and a breathtaking rolla bolla juggling act.

Meanwhile, Disney water parks will ramp up with playful spirits and summer fun faster than Olaf can beg for warm hugs. 

  • At Blizzard Beach, Olaf from Disney's animated hit "Frozen," will be living his "In Summer" dream as he and Kristoff host The Frozen Games at Blizzard Beach of friendly, fun competitions.
  • Typhoon Lagoon castaways can splash down on a sandy summer beach with a cold ale and savory snack after a wild slide on Crush 'n' Gusher water coaster.

Disney guests will have a blockbuster summer wherever they play, dine, relax or celebrate at Walt Disney World theme parks, entertainment venues and resort hotels.  For more information about Walt Disney World Resort, visit www.disneyworld.com and www.disneyparksblog.com

Debuting April 22, 2016, "Rivers of Light" will be an innovative experience unlike anything ever seen in a Disney park, combining live performances, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. "Rivers of Light" will come to life as a pair of mystical hosts comes to Discovery River bearing gifts of light. During the show, the hosts set out from the shore on elaborate lantern vessels for a dance of water and light to summon the animal spirits. (Disney Parks)
